Information Acquisition – Aerial Photography

• Consistent with our asset management plan for this information asset we are currently in the

process of capturing new aerial photography over the Townsville local government area.

• Capture consists of the following:

– urban aerial photography – 0.125m resolution

– rural aerial photography – 0.25m resolution (improvement on previous 0.5m)

• Urban aerial photography has been captured and about to be delivered.

• Rural aerial photography capture has been delayed due to the bushfire season and cloud.

• Expect to have new urban imagery available early in the New Year via MOSAIC.

• We are also continuing the project to digitally capture our entire historical aerial photography

collection to preserve this valuable information resource as well as make this information

resource more readily available.

• We have now digitally captured the imagery for 1938, 1941, 1952, 1959, 1961, 1965, 1971,

1972, 1976,1982 and 1985. Currently processing 1989.

• Existing orthophotography for 1995, 1999/2000, 2004/2005 and 2009.

• The majority of our historical aerial photography is (or will be) available to both Council and

the community through our MOSAIC Service – Historical Townsville.

captured LiDAR information for Flinders Highway, Majors Creek and Woodstock.

• Extends existing coverage of LiDAR information over Townsville (3 joint projects).

• Current project to capture LiDAR information for landfill sites – waste management levy.

• Looking at capturing LiDAR information for new development areas in 2012/2013.

Deliverables include:

• original point cloud .las files (ArcGIS 10.1)

• 1m bare earth DEM

• 0.25m contours

Information Acquisition – External Utilities

• To expand the range of information available to Council’s planners and designers we have

entered into data sharing arrangements with some external utilities and service providers.

• We currently have arrangements with Powerlink, Optus and Telstra and are hoping to extend

data sharing partnerships with a range of other utilities and service providers.

• Information has been provided to Council for internal use for design and planning purposes

and does not replace the requirement for Dial Before You Dig.

Information Acquisition – Demographic Modelling

• Identified business need within Council to access demographic and socio-economic

information at sub-LGA geography for community, infrastructure, social and town planning.

• To expand the range of demographic information available to Council for community, social

and infrastructure planning we have acquired a series of micro-simulation datasets depicting

key demographic information at collection district level.

• The micro-simulation datasets include:

– Household Expenditure Data (CD) – 2008/2009 and 2009/2010

– Micro-simulation data for Unemployment and Labour Force Analysis (CD)

– released quarterly and latest release is June 2011 quarter.

– Identified areas of high unemployment can inform community and social planning

initiatives including community renewal and community engagement programs.

– Loan Payments in Arrears (CD) – measure of mortgage stress

– Currently have 6 months ending September 2010 and March 2011

– REIQ Queensland Market Monitor (Property Sales and Median House Prices – Suburb)

– Available for Internal Use Only

Mobile Mapping Strategy and Implementation

• Currently have a number of ArcPAD licences in use across Council which we support as well as

other third party systems. Needed to develop a standard across Council.

• In the first half of 2011 we developed a corporate Mobile Mapping Strategy through consultation

with the various stakeholders across Council.

• The strategy identified the current and future mobile mapping requirements for various Council

departments including:

• asset capture, maintenance and management

• viewing works requests, works orders and customer service requests in the field

• disaster management

• mosquito urban response and vector control

• pest and weeds mapping

• The strategy identifies ArcGIS Mobile as the recommended mobile mapping solution which will

enable us to deploy customised mobile mapping applications to various functions across Council

to a range of mobile devices. Provides greater flexibility on a standard platform.

• Mobile Mapping Strategy is now being implemented with three key pilot projects:

• Disaster Management – Rapid Impact Assessment Process

• Water Asset Capture and Maintenance (followed by water outage management and

network modelling)

• Mosquito Urban Response

Townsville City Council


Mobile Mapping Strategy and Implementation

• Based on tasks and workflows defined by end users

• Define the task/workflow and then build a mobile solution

that fits (not trying to fit an existing solution to a task)

• Focuses on collecting the right information in the field and

that the information is checked, quality assured and loaded

back into the corporate GIS

Community Initiatives – Rural Addressing

Townsville City Council is currently in the process of finalising rural addressing within our local

government area.

• Two previous implementation projects were undertaken by the former Thuringowa City Council

in 2004 and the former Townsville City Council in 2005.

• A review of the rural addressing earlier this year identified approximately 500 remaining

properties which qualified for an address under the rural addressing standard.

• Finalisation of Rural Addressing:

• remaining rural properties have now been assigned an address using the standard

• property owners have been notified of their property address

• GIS and property database have been updated

• addressing information has been provided to DERM (PLI) and other relevant agencies and

service providers

• rural addressing posts have now been installed – utilising Rollingstone Lions Club and

Bluewater Rural Fire Service

• final rural addressing posts were installed first week of November

• This project then finalises rural addressing in the Townsville local government area.

• All new addressing is then undertaken as an operational activity in accordance with the standard

and address information forwarded to DERM and relevant agencies.

Community Initiatives – Disaster Management

• Geospatial information and technologies are a critical component for the disaster management

process and we are involved in the Townsville Local Disaster Management Group, the Disaster

Coordination Centre and the Townsville City Council Emergency Response Group.

• Queensland Storm Tide Evacuation Framework:

• This year the Queensland Government released the Storm Tide Evacuation Framework

which will ensure a consistent approach to storm tide mapping across Queensland.

Townsville City Council is one of the first local government authorities to complete the new

storm tide mapping which was released at Cyclone Sunday (30 th October).

• The development of the mapping has utilised our LiDAR information.

• Guardian Disaster Management System

• The Guardian software is utilised by a large number of local government authorities in

Queensland and we have it implemented in our Disaster Coordination Centre and have it

integrated with our GIS and Property and Rating system

• Mobile Mapping Solution for Rapid Impact Assessment Process

• This year we will be undertaking a pilot to utilise mobile mapping for the rapid impact

assessment process using ArcGIS Mobile.

• Working with Department of Community Safety (EMQ) to ensure we have a consistent

product between our two organisations to allow data sharing.

• All Hazards Information Management System (EMQ) – access to information from agencies.

• EMQ Emergency Alert System – provision of spatial information to identify campaign areas.
