Abstract

This is the first of a two-case series. Maps are important for a wide variety of uses, from recreation and tourism to transport and land use. Accurate and usable maps are critical to those engaged in saving lives and protecting property, such as the emergency services. But producing topographical maps of Victoria, with their 200-plus layers of information, was an expensive and time-consuming process which was failing to keep pace with a rapidly evolving landscape. The Victorian government's Spatial Information Infrastructure Agency was responsible for the production of the state's maps, and by the late 1990s, further updates were sorely needed. But Director Bruce Thompson faced a major obstacle - his organisation no longer had the funds to do it alone.
