Abstract

The ability to automatically generate metadata relating to spatial information, and make it available through the Australian SDI will have important benefits not only at an organizational level (with each organization saving time and money in generating their metadata), but at a national level because it will assist delivery of high quality spatial information and services to vast areas of Australia. This will aid in addressing national issues concerned with land management, environmental sustainability, water rights, indigenous land tenure and disaster management, which can only be addressed by having the ability to find and access high quality spatial information.
