Sealing the Hills project
Cardinia Shire Council utilised advanced 3D technology, including ground penetrating radar and mobile laser scanning, to upgrade their town centre and road infrastructure. This innovative approach helped identify tree root systems, enabling adjustments to road designs that protected hundreds of trees and reduced costs by more than $300,000. Additionally, they used 3D flythroughs to improve community consultation and minimise opposition. This project demonstrated the Council’s commitment to the triple bottom line, focusing on reducing environmental impact, cutting costs, and enhancing community engagement while effectively utilising geospatial expertise to manage resources and utilities. Judges praised this pioneering approach for its innovative use of geospatial knowledge and systems to support the community and resource management.
