Vision

Our vision is to federate all of the relevant groundwater data for Victoria into web-based spatial information system that is intuitive to use.

This project brings together a unique collaboration of 16 regional, state, national and international organisations with expertise in groundwater science, data collection and management, data modelling and visualisation, information and communications technology (ICT), high speed computation and data distribution, and groundwater management.  Each organisation is strongly committed to the innovative project vision of delivering high quality dynamic 3D geovisualisations of Victoria's groundwater systems using high capacity broadband technology. 

To achieve the vision, the collaborators will build on and share their current infrastructure and expertise to make Victoria's groundwater data compliant with Open Geospatial Consortium standards, enabling it to be served and consumed by each other's interoperable systems.  Applications will be written to dynamically model the interoperable data and deliver the modelled outputs via high capacity internet to end users, including the State's groundwater researchers, managers and users.
