PSMA Australias Information Platform - LYNX Facilitating collaboration and enabling spatial capability

Presented by:Dan PaullCEO PSMA Australia Limited

1John Snow demonstrated the utility of mapping disease outbreaks to gain insights as to their cause. Snow, an anaesthesiologist, mapped the distribution of cholera cases in Soho, London during an epidemic. He discovered that the highest density of cases occurred in households which used the public pump on Broad Street as their water source.The Power of Location: Long Recognised

PSMA AustraliaPSMA Australia Limited is an unlisted public company, established under the Corporations Act (2001), wholly owned by the State, Territory and Australian Governments.

To ensure that the substantial value inherently held within national spatial datasets can be readily accessed so as to deliver economic, social and environmental benefits to Australia.

By forming and managing a crucial supply chain between creators of fundamental spatial information and users of this information by aggregating, integrating and distributing national spatial datasets.

WhatWhyHow3VisionTo be recognised nationally and internationally as providing the authoritative foundations for enabling and shaping location based business solutions.MissionThe return of social, environmental and economic benefits through the provision of authoritative national location information, knowledge and services.Reference DatasetsTransport & TopographyOver 1,000,000 kms of named road centrelines in a structured hierarchy maintained quarterly.National rail network including tram lines.Airports and Landing Grounds.National Drainage network consisting of Major and Minor water layers and polygon water bodies.CadLiteOver 10.5 mil polygons representing the registered land parcels in Australia updated quarterly with incremental updates available.Every parcel contains the legal parcel identifier that acts as a key to access richly attributed jurisdictional Digital Cadastral Data Bases (DCDB).Also contains links to key administrative data layers including Local Government Area and Locality.A property version of the dataset is also available.G-NAFG-NAF contains over 12.5 million physical addresses and approximately 2.5 million aliases updated quarterlyData is sourced from AEC, Australia Post and Government Mapping Agencies and Land RegistriesEvery address contains a Geocode (Latitude & Longitude) and metadata to assist in decision makingSophisticated data modelling to enhance application accuracy5Reference DatasetsPoints of InterestOver 200,000 Points of Interest including: Police StationsHospitalsPost OfficesMuseumsChurchesAirportsBanksSwimming poolsLibrariesTheatresShopping CentresPostcode BoundariesThis definitive dataset has been developed by Australia Post and PSMA Australia and is updated quarterlyIncludes two layers:Boundaries polygon dataCentroid point data

Phase I implementation is complete and in its current form enables:A more efficient mechanism for moving gigabytes of data betweenPSMA Australia, Contributors, Data Managers and onto Clients;An environment that will facilitate the enhancement of data quality, consistency and integrity.LYNX is a services orientated infrastructure that provides:integrated & seamless storage of all the spatial data that PSMA Australia manages; and a mechanism for providing a variety of services and tools to improve data logistics, data quality and enhance data useability and accessibility. In August 2007, phase I of LYNX was awarded the USRISA award for Exemplary Enterprise Systems within Government.10The LYNX Conceptual ComponentsPSMA Australias business is all about building and managing:Relationships and access arrangements with disparate data custodians; The business processes and workflows to enable the development and maintenance of the national reference datasets; and Enabling access and the extraction of value from the information that we maintain.Consequently, LYNX consists of three major conceptual components:A collection of web services and workflow management tools to automate business processes; A network connecting together each of the data custodians in each Government;A standards-compliant, harmonised, extensible and highly normalised data model.

LYNX Benefits and OutcomesImplementationThe LYNX2 Infrastructure is being rolled out in a series of stages.The current stage involves leveraging off existing infrastructure to provide services to several Jurisdictions. The aim of this stage is to prove some of the technology and architecture and to demonstrate some of the benefits associated with LYNX.This capability is currently being delivered to Tasmania, Western Australia and New South Wales in pilot environments. In addition there are also trials being contemplated by GA, DHS, FaHCSIA and CSIRO on behalf of BOM.Questions
