Solutions for Public Sector

Local, state and federal governments across Australia and New Zealand are increasingly seeing the value of using digital mapping, not only to support day-to-day operations – but also to better connect with their communities.

MapData Services provides all levels of government with customised mapping products, consulting services and hosted online applications.

Our mapping data – such as postcode, local government, suburbs, census, electoral boundaries and geo-demographic information – is the most accurate and reliable on the market.

Our public sector clients draw on this data not only when creating their own maps, but also as part of their asset management, planning and development projects.

But MapData Services opens the door to more than just the region’s best data.

We also develop creative mapping solutions that help our clients connect with their communities – promoting higher levels of public participation, government transparency and easier access to information.

For example, some of the solutions we deliver include:

  • A real-time community engagement mobile application that empowers the public to use their smartphone to identify and report issues to their local council or government department – resulting in efficiency gains in internal processes.
  • Highly accurate, panoramic street-level 3D imagery of suburbs, cities and states Australia-wide – meaning staff can perform audits on council assets (e.g. trees or roads) from their computer, without the need to make field trips.
  • Accurate fleet tracking, enabling staff to conduct real time mobile resources monitoring, route optimisation and reporting.
