Congratulations to the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) for winning the Spatial Enablement category at the prestigious WA Spatial Excellence Awards on Friday night. DMP was recognised for the GeoVIEW.WA web mapping application. GeoVIEW.WA provides access to the Geological and Geoscience information of WA to the public and resources communities.
With GeoVIEW.WA the public can view, query and map various geoscientific and related datasets. Users also have the ability to construct and print customised geological maps based on their specific needs. This integrated, State-wide data is updated on a regular basis.
GeoVIEW.WA is based on Geocortex web mapping technology, which AAM supplied as well as services for the development and support of the GeoVIEW.WA application. The application makes accessible fundamental data for the design of resource exploration programs in Western Australia. It is also critical in State Government decision making, particularly on economic and land use issues.
