The Gippsland Local Government Network has identified GIS as a priority application for the GippsLink Shared ICT Services Project. During January 2010, CeCC was engaged by the Department of Innovation, Industry and Regional Development to assist in researching the business case for the GIS application. Associated research was completed during May 2010.
The overall vision is for participating Local Government Areas (LGAs) to have access to a wide range of GIS tools, comprehensive data resources and well developed business systems that together are capable of providing them with the capabilities required to support well informed regional decision making, planning, monitoring and reporting.
The participating LGAs were Bass Coast Shire; Baw Baw Shire; East Gippsland Shire; Latrobe City; South Gippsland Shire, Wellington Shire.
