Investigation into the Spatial Capacity of Australia

In early 2010, Mr Drew Clarke, Secretary of the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism invited Dr Vanessa Lawrence CB, Director General and Chief Executive, Ordnance Survey, Great Britain, to investigate Australia's current spatial capability in order to inform future spatial policy and capability developments.

In her final report Dr Lawrence made 22 recommendations; a number of which outline the policy and frameworks that she believes are necessary to maximise the spatial capability of Australia, taking into consideration Australia's political and economic geography.

Dr Lawrence also recommends an implementation model to deliver these policies, and a governance structure that will ensure that the recommendations can be implemented and built-upon as Australia's spatial capability evolves.
