Victorian data now available to all
The economic power of Victorian Government data is about to be unleashed, with the announcement of two new policies that will enable unprecedented access to the state's data.
Assistant Treasurer and Minister for Technology Gordon Rich-Phillips, who announced the new DataVic Access and Intellectual Property policies last week at the 8th Annual Victorian Spatial Excellence Awards, said that Victorian Government data was one of the state's most important public assets.
"Each year the Victorian Coalition Government invests millions of dollars in producing and acquiring high-quality data about our state", Mr Rich-Phillips said.
"Giving recurrent and reliable access to this data is a long overdue stimulus that Victorian businesses and the community will be able to finally harness in developing innovative applications that create new services or improve existing ones."
