The GeoSpatial SIG was initiated in late 2012 and was formally approved in April 2013. The group operates as a National AIIA Special Interest Group (SIG), hosted by the Victorian branch.
Spatial Information is being recognised by Government and the broader industry as a working component of the larger information industry. Government and the larger industry beyond the traditional spatial domains are realising the value of visualising and analysing government and business data in a geospatial context – on a map. Spatial Information and the associated processes are complex and the SIG seeks to assist AIIA members in making effective use of this industry, and to influence key spatial information contributors to optimise the benefit for the community.
