Spatial Services is responsible for the collection, maintenance and distribution of the Foundation Spatial Data Framework (FSDF) which consists of 10 broad data themes. The FSDF is an Australia New Zealand standard endorsed by all state and territory governments and the Australian and New Zealand governments.
These data themes bring together significant NSW spatial data covering:
- Land Parcel and Property
- Administrative Boundaries
- Geocoded Address
- Elevation and Depth
- Land Cover
- Place Names
Spatial data is a critical component of the NSW economy and is relied upon by government, industry and the community to provide environmental management and strategic planning which enables decision making for economic growth. The provision of a state-wide FSDF ensures the seamless exchange of single source of truth spatial data.
Under the NSW Government Open Data Policy, spatial data is made available, under open access licenses, to support new and innovative uses of NSW Government information. To achieve this, many products and services are now available to download free from our Spatial Collaboration Portal.
