The challenge

Spatial data is growing, fast

There is a growing amount of geographic location data being used and made available by governments and businesses all over the world. This data is often placed on custom maps in specialised websites which result in high cost of website development, poor reuse of the spatial data, and lost opportunities for innovation using the data.

Our response

Exploring multiple spatial data sets through TerriaTM

We've developed Terria™ , a software platform for web-based spatial data visualisation and analytics.

The platform includes TerriaJS™, advanced mapping software that provides access to large numbers of spatial data services directly from the original data custodian and allows users to search, explore, share and add to maps. New maps can be quickly developed, building on existing spatial data services as well as new cloud-based data services that can be rapidly set up.

Also included is a web-based Terria Spatial Inference Engine which provides a simple programming interface allowing a wide range of analyses to be developed for extracting insight from data sets. These tools are built from state of the art machine learning algorithms designed specifically for large-scale spatial inference.

The results

Making spatial data accessible

Terria™ maps are being used for policy development, decision-support analysis and in the development of easy-to-use open data websites. For example, the web front-end of the Australian Government's NationalMap uses our TerriaJS™ software. It connects directly to data servers at each participating government agency using open protocols and open data formats.

The US Geological Survey, Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Infrastructure (AREMI) and the UNEPFI Global Risk Map also employ TerriaJS™ software.

Using the Terria™ analytics tools we provide advanced spatial inference for a large number of industries including environment, energy, finance, and demographics.
