Access to up-to-date, reliable data is critical to improving social and economic outcomes. However, data is only useful if it can be accessed and understood. The Victorian Women’s Health Atlas was developed and launched by Women’s Health Victoria (WHV) in 2015 - in partnership with Spatial Vision - to assist in the identification of gender impacts across six priority health areas.

7 of the Best Data Visualisation Platforms

When we use the term ‘data visualisation’ it conjures up an image of charts, maps and dashboards, but it’s far more complex than this. Over the last few years, there has been steady development of cloud-hosted applications that are becoming increasingly affordable and accessible, with many built on open-source frameworks.

Spatial Vision's Values Day

Last month our entire workplace ventured offsite for a values workshop. The purpose of this was to cement our already existing values into a clear-cut statement that would reinforce our existing culture, allow us to achieve company goals and ensure that potential new employees have similar values.  It was also important that all staff could strongly recognise and associate with each of the values and principles.

Spatial Vision was recently commissioned by Emergency Management Victoria (EMV), to update the Victorian State Command Centre wall map.  The original wall map was produced by Spatial Vision back in 2004 and was starting to show its age. Fading from the sun over time and peeling off the wall meant it was no longer an effective operational product for the State Command Centre team during critical operations. 

Climate Change Adaption Research

Reflecting on the recent National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility 2018 Climate Adaptation Conference held in Melbourne there were several themes that stand out for me.

6 Tips for Hiking on Snow

SV Maps is a mapping company owned by Spatial Vision. We design, create and publish a range of award-winning and innovative digital and hard copy maps to assist people plan their adventures or next holiday. Darren Edwards, founder of Trail Hiking Australia, gave us some of his top tips for hiking on snow and ice leading up to the winter school holidays.

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! Bob Scientist is on leave for a month – guess you can’t do your work. 

Programming or scripting is used to make this attribution into a very usable, visually pleasing product. We have created the Python Insights blog series to help other Python users by providing solutions to common problems and handy hints.

Why Do Local Government Need GIS Strategies?

Geospatial information is part of our daily life and business. 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. Usually, GIS solutions can be easily implemented and operated in any enterprise. The question is: if there is GIS operating then why would we need a GIS strategy?

How can programming be used in mapping? These days, maps just aren’t made up of lines and areas on a page. They are made up of very rich complex data. Each line can have a myriad of attribution detailing type of feature, use, width and more.
