Spatial Industries Business Association to build digital cities

Australia: The Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) recently announced a new project that will seek to build ‘digital cities,’ starting with Australia and New Zealand’s major cities represented as they were during the ANZAC period (1900 to 1915).

SIBA will drive the project, MIMOSA (Multi-dimensional Information for MetrOpolitan Spatial Alliances), forward thanks to an alliance between its Australian and New Zealand chapters, combined with support from the ANZAC Centenary Foundation.

“Spatial data enables us to make the invisible visible, the intangible more tangible, and can help us to discover stories not only about places from our past, like the time of ANZACs, but also better understand our present and our future,” said Richard Simpson, CEO, SIBA Queensland branch.
