Coordinating and integrating land information systems in Queensland

In Queensland, the aim of the Queensland Land Information System (QLIS) is to enable the vast holdings of land information to be easily accessed and integrated, and to eliminate wasteful duplication of effort and/or resources by ensuring that the systems and databases developed are compatible. Detailed planning of directions and focus for QLIS over the next three years was completed in 1993 with the production of the QLIS Strategic Plan. The paper will outline the strategies being employed for whole-of-government coordination of land information system development and provide a context of activities currently taking place. Within the Department of Lands a major corporate business initiative called the Basic Land Information Network (BLIN) is putting these strategies into action. The BLIN initiative when complete, wil provide the architecture to integrate all the major information systems of the Department by providing real time access to the source data at all times so that up-to-date information may be integrated at the time of need. BLIN is viewed as a model architecture for QLIS incorporating the next generation of spatial information systems interconnected by expansive networking as part of the emerging information superhighway. The paper will detail the architecture and approach currently being implemented.
