roles & relationships
between the public & private sectors
An important part of establishing a strong and robust spatial information industry
is to understand the relevant roles of the public and private sectors. In turn,
this understanding should strengthen relationships and focus on using spatial
information to improve the social, economic and environmental interests of Australia.
Three peak organisations now represent the spatial information industry in
Australia. ANZLIC represents public sector interests, Australian Spatial Information
Business Association (ASIBA) represents the commercial interests and the Spatial
Sciences Institute (SSI) which represents professionals in the spatial sciences
and provides for their professional development.
ANZLIC has prepared a discussion paper Respective
Roles and Conduct of relationships between the Public and Private Sectors in
the Australian Spatial Information Industry. This paper has been
adopted by ANZLIC, ASIBA and the SSI as a basis for further discussion.
