Policy & Advocacy


Modernising Survey Auditing
The Geospatial Council has identified four key areas of focus which will be underpinned by our leadership and advocacy programs:

Building workforce expertise and addressing the structural issues impacting the education and training of professionals,
Advocating policy changes that will positively impact the growth of the industry and its capability,
Championing professional development,
Building sector recognition.

By addressing these crucial areas the Geospatial Council is laying the foundation for a thriving modern digital economy that will benefit the entire nation.


Regular consultation with our members and other key industry stakeholders supports programs to promote capability development, foster innovation, and support the growth of geospatial companies across the nation.

The Council engages with government at both national and state/territory level to identify areas where policy changes are needed to lift the capability and growth of the geospatial industry.

This includes policies related to industry growth including investment priorities, procurement policies, regulations, standards, and data sharing.
