Speaker: Mr Matt Berger, Director at the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Outposted to NSW Office of Finance and Services, Treasury and Finance Cluster.
Abstract: Come for a spin of the NSW Globe as we demonstrate Google Earth acting as a portal for both Census data and spatially enabled data held by the NSW Government
NSW Globe is a state Government initiative implemented through the free Google Earth™ application which displays New South Wales Government (NSW) maps and spatial data including land parcels. The ABS have actively sought to include ABS data in the NSW Globe, and have provided sets of URLs pointing to ABS data which are included in the latest release of the NSW Government app.
In this session, Matt Berger gave a demonstration of NSW Globe and the layers which include ABS data. It is envisaged that this solution will generate broader discussion around further opportunities for data sharing, notably for additional geographies within ASGS, for other dataset types, and for other jurisdictions.
