Introduction fiji land information systems

IntroductionFiji Land Information Systems


Why flis

Why FLIS?

  • quality of land information in Govt. agencies?

  • fragmented and stand-alone information gathering & storage – cannot combine

  • lack of access to land information – led to duplication

  • lack of knowledge - technology

  • lack of land information (geospatial) resources available to meet current and future needs

  • no standardization of data and interoperability required

  • lack of appropriately qualified and experience people in Govt. agencies – sustainability and continuity?

  • lack of funding for individual agencies to work on their own


Functions of the flic

Functions of the FLIC

  • develop and coordinate all FLIS projects

  • define, fund and resource all approved FLIS projects

  • formulate policies on data generation and management in the agencies encompassed by the FLIS umbrella, data standards, the use and dissemination of LIS data – including custodianship, pricing, privacy, security and access.

  • training and education

  • liaise with the private sector and the user community

  • ensure that FLIS projects are properly cost-justified and the project timetable are adhered to

  • manage and direct the FLIS Support Centre

  • promote all publicity and other information to keep all sectors of the community informed on progress and products.

Commitments

COMMITMENTS ………..

  • Hesitancies of each agency despite support of NZ Government

  • Territorialism in terms of data

  • Reluctance to adapt to automation of process

  • Traces of colonialism administrative process and style entrenched in the bureaucratic system

  • GIS and RS learning NOT strengthened

  • How FLIS set up was viewed


Flis core systems

FLIS Core Systems

Adaptations

Adaptations

  • location-based policies and the effective use of geospatial information are powerful drivers for sustainable development.

  • need for an appropriate geospatial information infrastructure at all levels (local, national, regional) that can provide a geospatial integrative framework necessary to build a solid information base for accurate description

Challenges

Challenges

  • Connectivity – GovNet (ITC Services)

  • Data Quality – Reference for Standards and Need to adapt to the Global Reference Frame

  • Data sharing – policy to strengthen

    - Access to remotely sensed data limited

  • Funding/Budget

  • Staff Retention – human resources are the most important component of Geospatial Information infrastructure. GI without people has no value.

  • Technology adaptation vs. costs

  • Sustainability


Way forward

Way forward

  • look at ways to increase capacity and reduce the digital divide

  • Promoting geospatial advocacy and awareness

  • review educational strategies to improve the awareness and literacy levels of geospatial information

  • knowledge sharing

  • review policy options and the role of government regarding privacy and confidentiality of geospatial information

  • mechanisms for the government institutions to learn from each other and to share their concerns
