ANZLIC - the Spatial Information Council (ANZLIC) is the peak intergovernmental organisation providing leadership in the collection, management and use of spatial information in Australia and New Zealand.

ANZLIC is governed by a council comprising ten senior officials from the Australian and New Zealand Governments, and the governments of the States and Territories of Australia. They are generally responsible within their jurisdiction for coordinating spatial information policy and operational matters. The Secretary of the Commonwealth Department of Communications currently chairs ANZLIC as an independant member. The Council meets three times per year.

ANZLIC's vision is that:

The economic growth, social and environmental interests of Australia and New Zealand are underpinned by spatially referenced information that is current, complete, accurate, affordable and accessible; and is integrated in critical decision making.

ANZLIC is currently co-located with the Australian Government Office of Spatial Policy.
