The POS Tool www.postool.com.au is a unique web based data dissemination and visualization tool. The tool allows users to interrogate the newly created (2012) public open space (POS) geographic information system (GIS) layer (representing Perth and Peel in WA).
In addition to the main interrogation methods that cover searching by address, park name or by local government area (LGA) or suburb, users will be able to log into a section fo the POS tool website to allow them additional access to POS information by allowing users to define their own area to use for statistical summary calculation rather than using pre-defined suburbs or LGAs.
Once the user has defined an area it is stored against their profile. A user may store multiple polygons against their profile, which may be referred to as 'projects'.
This functionality will be implemented to allow the user to both digitise a polygon on the website using a map similar to our existing map as a background or upload their own polygon shapefile. If a user digitises a polygon, they will also be given the opportunity to download this shapefile.
When a user has either uploaded or digitised a polygon of a custom area, they will be able to download all relevant statistics for the area and download these statistics via .csv format.
This service currently covers Perth Metropolitan and Peel Region.
