Importance of an address

Benefits of spatially accurate information

Achievable through GIS

Administers the creation of roads, features and localities

Street and locality name underpins creation of an address

Compliance to Guidelines - duplication

CPN and addresses used by ESTA to provide dispatch

All achievable through GIS

Why is location (place) data important?

What are the impacts of incorrect data?

Great Australian Bight Commonwealth Sea Reserve
Scientist abseil 100m down the Bunda Cliffs at the head of the Great Australian Bight to place satellite tags on a population of threatened Australian Sea lions. The information captured by the devices is loaded into a GIS to be mapped and analysed to show how far the animals travel (and to what depths) to feed while their cubs are on shore. The GIS information is used to help protect the population, with the creation of sea reserves.
Venus Bay Conservation Park
Bilby's are trapped, tagged and released. Data collected from the radio tags is mapped within a GIS to determine the range (area they roam) within the park. The maps and analysis are used to target predator (fox / feral cat) control programs to aid in the recovery of the species.
