Geospatial Advisory

Geospatial Advisory (4)

Our Advisory Services will assist you in increasing your business performance by using spatial technology and enhancing your organization’s skill base.

At Spatial Vision, we advise organisations on how to effectively use their information to advance decision-making and improve operational efficiency to execute lasting beneficial change. 

If you’re a data consumer, saying the word “metadata” conjures images of pages and pages of CKAN search results (data.gov.au anyone?), field after field of inscrutable information, and you’re just trying to find that download link or an email contact buried somewhere in the mess of information. Maybe you’ve just started a new job and you need access to some corporate dataset, and you’ve heard through word-of-mouth that Bob Scientist has the data you’re looking for, but oh no!

Many business areas in Local Government Authorities (LGAs) rely on Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) to deliver services to external customers or to support efficient internal daily operations.

Given up on strategic plans because no one pays them any attention?
Can’t get the decision makers to read them, let alone fund them?

Too often I see strategic plans that describe implementing lots of technology but fail to demonstrate successfully how they will benefit the organisation or customers.

Effective strategic plans lay out a vision and a common set of organisational goals (describing how to get there and measure progress along the way). If the plan is going to be successful, it needs to be accepted across an organisation: people need to understand what the plan will deliver and how it is to be achieved.
