Geoscape has links to a wide range of information generated throughout the lifecycle of the built environment. Data from organisations, individuals, applications and a rich mesh of sensors can be tied to a location, an address, a legal land parcel and an area, ranging from a single building, to a few streets, to a planning zone or a region.
Geoscape is a national digital dataset which represents buildings, surface cover and trees. Once the
rollout has been completed, this will include all datasets for each State and Territory in Australia.
Additionally, Geoscape licencing includes access to linkages of other PSMA products, including:
- CADLITE® (Cadastre and Property)
- Administrative Boundaries™ (Mesh Blocks and Suburbs/Localities)
Geoscape differs from any other 3D representations of city areas in three key ways:
- Coverage is National (Rollout Schedule)
- Regular maintenance
- Linkages to other Geospatial Data
As a business intelligence tool, this kind of rich geospatial data will benefit all sectors of business, providing a valuable dataset that will open up new ways of doing business. Geoscape will support evidence-based decision making across a wide range of business scenarios:
- Service delivery
- Urban and regional planning and management
- Risk estimation
- Policy making
- Emergency response
- Infrastructure rollout
OMNILINK can supply PSMA data in any digital spatial format, including many unusual formats. In addition, we offer a data brokerage service on behalf of many of our clients, where we act as agents in securing both spatial (locational) and textual datasets from many other external agencies. These agencies include government departments (federal, state and local) as well as commercial suppliers in Australia and New Zealand. Data is the key area of OMNILINK’s business. This is an area that is very diverse and requires specialist skills and processes to deliver a quality result on time, every time. OMNILINK has established procedures for data integration that provide quality controlled processes and a result that preserves the content and intelligence of the information.
