The site data.gov.uk contains interesting datasets on Government spending that would be of interest to the community here.

Interstate a number of local government organisations utilize geo data with high resolution photography, with a range of overlays that allow people to see current data sets - photos, with road overlays, service overlays, emergency management overlays etc. An example was the Brisbane floods, where BCC provided high resolution flood prediction maps, overlayed on high resolution photo maps - and excellent tool, fantastic for the community planning, resilience, mitigation and when making the decision, should I stay and protect my home or leave early.
Similar models could be used in preparing for other disasters or in informing the community to allow them to be prepared and more resilient

Hi Scott
This is a great example of how access and display of location and mapping data can empower people to make better emergency and safety plans. We will investigate further in this space. Thank you for your contribution.

I believe that all South Australian biodiversity data should be made available via the Atlas of Living Australia. Some data from the SA Museum and DEWNR is available, but it is incomplete. The availability of this data will allow improved environmental management decision making and enhance private sector and citizen science undertakings. http://ala.org.au

Hi Dan
Thank you for your contribution. Do you know of any current research projects that could directly benefit from a specific field of data? Knowing this could help us prioritise what biodiversity data we should release first.
