Government Information Licensing Framework

"Frictionless" access to government information is recognised as a key opportunity for innovation. This project sought to make it easier to access under-utilised government information to exploit its social, economic, cultural and environmental value.

To support spatial information e-commerce amongst a network of providers and users, the project delivered legal and policy frameworks, and a business model, for several government agencies.

Digital Rights Management regimes were developed and implemented to assist the provision of public sector information in Queensland and Western Australia. This included the Queensland Government Information Licensing Framework, the Western Australian Shared Land Information Platform, and the Government Information Service of the Queensland Environment and Resource Management. The project was jointly led by Queensland University of Technology and Queensland Treasury.
