The NSW Location Intelligence Strategy seeks to directly address these challenges by establishing a coordinated and strategic approach to realising the benefits of location intelligence for NSW government, industry and the community.Australia: The Minister for Finance and Services, Dominic Perrottet, has announced the release of the New South Wales (NSW) Government Location Intelligence Strategy.

Announcing the strategy, Perrottet said, “The NSW Location Intelligence Strategy gives a clear roadmap to a better future by providing a consistent information framework enriched by online web services, mobile apps and social media to maximise the value of location-based and geospatial information in all decision-making, planning and service delivery across NSW.”

This will be done through five strategic initiatives: build awareness, capacity and capability, integrate governance and coordination across all location intelligence providers, identify and manage government location-based data, link NSW Government data to location, and leverage whole-of-government location platforms and services.

At present, the benefits of location intelligence are not being fully realised across NSW. Government datasets that incorporate location-based information cannot be easily accessed and analysed with reliability across NSW Government agencies. There remains too much duplication of effort collecting similar data, too little reuse and too few linkages across key datasets which is costly and inefficient. The NSW Location Intelligence Strategy seeks to directly address these challenges by establishing a coordinated and strategic approach to realising the benefits of location intelligence for NSW government, industry and the community.

The NSW Location Intelligence Strategy seeks to directly address these challenges by establishing a coordinated and strategic approach to realising the benefits of location intelligence for NSW government, industry and the community. In line with NSW 2021, the strategy supports government's approach that reaches beyond program and agency boundaries to achieve true sharing of public resources, capabilities and knowledge for the benefit of the people of NSW.
