Turning people-centred spatial information into policy

Tags: , , , ,

In October, the CRCSI together with the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) and the Australian Institute for Health & Welfare (AIHW) convened a Roundtable discussion to explore the challenges and actions outlined in a recently released paper, Location Matters – realising the value of people centred spatial information to inform policy. The Roundtable brought policy and spatial data experts together to determine how best spatial expertise can be accessed to meet the needs of policy development. Participants from the Roundtable worked together to modify and prioritise the actions highlighted in the report.
