The A-SPEC standard specifications were developed to streamline the processes undertaken to display all new assets within Authorities’ GIS and Asset Management Systems.
A common specification for the supply of digital data was identified as a major opportunity for the consortia members to achieve efficiency and cost savings in the process of maintaining their corporate geographic information systems (GIS) and asset management systems (AMS).
However there is more to adopting a standard than just imposing it on all. A-SPEC starts it’s process by looking at both sides of the data collection aspects of digital lodgement. A-SPEC has talked to the surveyors, the developers and consultants, the software developers and to the Local Authorities.
A-SPEC starts with a balanced approach to what can be achieved.
The presentation that George will make will discuss the issues associated with adopting a standardised approach to asset recording and what lessons have been learned along the way.
Amongst other subject matter he will address internal and external benefits of data models and specifications and their important link to meeting business needs.
