A co-ordinated approach to asset data capture

Following years of road, drainage & park construction without accurate asset information, Noosa Council is now facing the massive task of gathering and updating electronic asset data for entry into new generation GIS(Geographic Information Systems) and Asset Management systems. Previous asset data capture methods employed at Noosa have been mainly paper based with some basic mapping and have produced asset datasets with relatively poor accuracy. Extracting reliable asset information and producing maps using layer overlay techniques for appropriate asset management with spatially incorrect data containing deficient attribute information has proved very difficult. The commitment to fund 'As Constructed' surveys following project completion has been lacking, leaving gaps in many corporate asset datasets. On the other hand, developers have been required to supply 'As Constructed' asset data. This paper offers an all encompassing solution for gathering electronic asset data on both the backlog of historical assets owned by Council and those built each financial year by Council, and donated to Council. The paper also details how Councils working in co-operation in a regional approach, can achieve a uniform solution to similar problems for the benefit of the private sector, community and councils alike.
