Wanted: Data-rich Canterbury projects

Wanted: Data-rich Canterbury projects

Land Information New Zealand has put out a call for consultants to scope work to accelerate the development of spatial data infrastructure by funding projects in Canterbury.

The work involves eliciting possible projects from agencies involved in earthquake recovery and assembling projects that will both assist in the recovery and provide important data for freer re-use in open formats.

LINZ will evaluate the proposals and will seek government funding for the preferred ones.

Consultants can express their interest and respond with relevant qualifications by December 7.

This work is aimed at identifying a bundle of projects that will enable spatial data to be made available as web services that can support end uses like non-specialists in agencies using spatial information, public facing web services and visualisation tools.

The Specification for Consultants can be downloaded here.
