Foundation Spatial Data Modernisation

June 2023

FrontierSI Partner Co-Founded Collaborative Research Project Solicitation

“Advances in machine learning and new data capture technology are providing invaluable opportunities for modernisation of the creation, connection, integration and maintenance of Australia’s Foundation Spatial Data.”


Modernising the Foundation Spatial Data Framework (FSDF) is a key priority for FrontierSI Government Partners and ANZLIC members. It is one of the 5 Strategic Priorities in the ANZLIC Strategic Plan 2020–2024, and is again listed as one of the 10 Major Initiatives.

Delivering these solutions is also one of FrontierSI’s Key Research Theme focal areas.

FrontierSI is seeking to co-fund a small number of projects which will demonstrate capability in modernising FSDF through showcasing the role of re-usable, interoperable, configurable, and scalable processes that will support efficient future ready workflows to create and maintain foundation spatial data.

If you are a FrontierSI industry or research organisation partner and have ideas for short or longer-term project plans that will deliver impactful and operational solutions for government partners through addressing any of the challenge topics, then we encourage you to submit a proposal.

Submissions close 12 noon AEST Monday 26th June 2023.
