Geoscience Australia has been leading a multiyear Whole of Government program named the Foundation Spatial Data Framework, with the intent of making the location data Open, Accessible, Affordable and Usable. The program addresses data governance, discovery, access and quality issues across a complex supply chain. The program introduces reusable infrastructures and architecture frameworks to stimulate stakeholder engagement to realise multiparty business outcomes.
