- A clean and intuitive web interface guiding users through roles and workflows
- Centralised Geospatial Data Management
- Entirely automated processes
- Availability of decision-support knowledge and facilitation of knowledge sharing for all levels of staff
- Quality Information – supporting high data quality, data entry accuracy, validation and sharing
- Data Integration with other government departments, existing applications and financial systems
A key feature of the system is to support holistic government business processes – furthermore, the product contains an extremely high level of configurability and is able to handle the many changing needs of government departments.
Interoperable modules in Lands-Tracker™ allow for advanced planning, oversight, mapping, management and monitoring. With this modular approach, purchasing and installation can occur as needed in accordance with an organisation’s requirements.
Lands-Tracker™ uses contemporary technologies and therefore can leverage their benefits, including:
- Multiple Portals direct to the system
- Mobile device access
- Business Intelligence and Dashboards
- Integration with Visualisation
- Social Network Integration
- Configurable workflows
- Multi system Integration and orchestration of data
- Full two-way seamless GIS Integration – to the user, Relational and Spatial datasets behave as one system, with a single user interface
This multi-faceted approach to city management can be furthered by use of:
- Social Media Monitoring
- Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR)Used for producing 3D models of a city’s assets, allowing virtual assessment of key features. LiDAR and Photogrammetry can allow for the creation of detailed modelling of key vegetation, key features and infrastructure. This model allows reference models to be created to allow for highly detailed inspection of key features.
- Augmented and Virtual Reality
- Sensors and Drones
- Artificial Intelligence
- Internet of Things (IoT)Using sensors to automate data gathering which was formerly manually gathered, eg. determining faults and/or “leakage” of water or electricity, allowing public utilities to immediately react to issues.
Case study –
Land Information New Zealand
Department of Conservation
Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) is a government agency responsible for property rights and geographic information, with the aim of encouraging land information markets to develop and mature.
Land Information New Zealand provides an up-to-date picture of legal land ownership within the country, and also manages Crown property, geodetic and cadastral survey systems, and topographic and hydrographic information.
New Zealand’s Department of Conservation (DOC) manages natural and historic heritage assets by conserving, advocating and promoting these assets to ensure they are passed on undiminished to future generations.
The Department of Conservation advises ministers and government and implements legislation after a high level of public consultation, acknowledging that conservation land is the common heritage of all New Zealanders.
The Department facilitates tourism and tourist information, while regulating such sites to ensure that the longevity and quality of New Zealand’s resources remains uncompromised.
The former LINZ Land Information Property System was developed 12 years ago, and had received support and maintenance on a case by case basis only. Additional applications had been developed for specialist functions; therefore a lack of consistency became apparent, creating problems during training, information-transfer, and reporting.
According to the 2009 LINZ Statement of Intent, its key operational deliverables within the next 5 – 10 years required a solution to ensure a secure environment for the buying, selling and subdividing of land, while seamlessly interfacing with existing technology systems.
The Department of Conservation sought to replace its existing Land Register – a core component of its Land Information Management System – which had received no serious review since 1995.
Due to updated requirements, the new system needed to have greater data entry capabilities for land information and spatial data, greater reporting functionality, and the capacity for external exchange of information whilst easily interfacing with existing applications. This core component was viewed as a subset of the consolidated solution that LINZ was seeking – the desired solution for DOC therefore also meeting the solution requirements of LINZ.
The collective intent of the agencies’ was to investigate a system that would potentially meet the common requirements of other government agencies and form the basis for an “All-of-Government” solution.
LINZ and DOC collectively chose the ICS biodiversity and parks management software product, Lands-Tracker™ as the ideal solution for the needs of both departments, and as a potential system for the whole of government.
Lands-Tracker™ allows LINZ and DOC a single point of entry on the web for all users to share information and collaborate in effectively and efficiently collecting, maintaining, analysing, reporting and enquiring on key information.
Lands‐Tracker™ provides the following:
- A single point of access for distinct government departments, creating the potential for information sharing and collaboration
- Enhancement of the management and maintenance of parks and wilderness areas, including major tourist sites
- A decrease in time spent on regulatory processes regarding buying, selling, and subdividing of property
- Reduction of manual processes and paperwork
- An increase in collaboration for design and development between agencies
Through a more effective system for conservation management and land and title administration, LINZ and DOC are able to achieve greater economic advantage and wider protection of its valuable natural assets.
