Surveyor General of New South Wales

"We are more connected today than ever before. Technology has facilitated a transformation in our ability to access information and to communicate with others. The Open Forum Project provides the opportunity for communities of interest to interact in an online environment facilitating discussion in areas of dynamic change. As Surveyor General of New South Wales I am pleased to support the Open Forum project as a means of leveraging the knowledge and experience within the spatial information community, and to strengthen the vigour of that community of interest by providing the opportunity for a wide range of providers, clients and other interested parties. The Open Forum provides an opportunity to educate, develop and explore with others, the potential of spatial information in all walks of our life and to fully realise the potential value of spatial data." — Warwick Watkins, Surveyor General, New South Wales
