Top Decision-Makers Map WA’s Future with GIS Technology
Western Australia’s most senior decision-makers are using a planning mega-map developed by the nation’s leading Geographic Information System (GIS) specialists Esri Australia to ready the state for the next four decades.
Australian economic and social policy think-tank the Committee for the Economic Development of Australia (CEDA), partnered with Esri Australia to construct the map exclusively for its ‘Inventing the Future: Shaping WA from 2010 to 2050’ discussion series.
A who’s who of influential business, political and public service figures gathered in Perth on Wednesday for the final of 12 forums in the series, where they discussed the key issues - such as resource management, employment and infrastructure – facing Western Australia as it enters an era of record growth.
