GIS Project

The GIS Project was established over 5 years ago and was leading edge at the time. The GIS Service is becoming a centre of excellence. In 2017 urban aerial photography was updated as a collaborative effort supporting all councils and external users to be more effective and efficient. A shared approach to rural photography for the region will be initiated in 2018. The architecture, supporting a single point of access to the regions aerial photography and data from all councils, is improving each year.

The Board had the opportunity of a demonstration of the new platform at a recent meeting and was excited by the opportunities that this creates. The approach being adopted is considered at the leading edge of such projects and has sparked interest from throughout
New Zealand.

The board acknowledged the significance of the work that has been undertaken by the GIS Advisory Group that has been well led by Russell McCracken from the Wairoa District Council. The platform is to be released shortly for Beta testing.

There is excitement by users about the opportunities that this service creates
