Spatial WA

Spatial WA,

The Cook Labor Government is investing $140 million to improve Western Australia’s digital capabilities to accelerate land development approvals, and streamline delivery of key infrastructure projects.

The program, known as Spatial WA, will be led by Landgate and developed in consultation with more than 30 government agencies. The Spatial WA digital platform will maximise the value of the State’s data by creating a spatially accurate 4D virtual representation of the built and natural environment, supporting key Government priorities around infrastructure delivery, planning reforms and emergency preparedness. The technology will provide the ability to combine spatial and non-spatial data to generate analytical insights, run predictive modelling, and streamline digital workflows, with the potential to unlock significant savings for the State.

By making precise location data relating to roads, buildings, networks, pipelines and other infrastructure readily available across agencies, Spatial WA can for example help reduce wait times for planning applications, improve efficiency of maintenance work, streamline land development, accelerate approvals processes and increase community engagement on infrastructure projects. The $140 million funding will be provided through the State Government’s Digital Capability Fund over 10 years.
