ANZLIC’s Strategic Plan 2020-24 identifies modernisation of foundation spatial information and data1 as a key strategic initiative.
The roadmap within ANZLIC’s Strategic Plan outlines modernising ANZLIC’s Foundation Spatial Data Framework (FSDF) as a key initiative, as well as driving development and adoption of open spatial data standards that align with and inform international standards.
Geoscience Australia (GA) facilitates transitioning of many of the FSDF themes (http://fsdf.org.au/) into the Linked Data format. Population Distributions is one of core FSDF themes that is undertaking a development of an information model (ontology) and its transformation to the Linked Data Format. On completion, Population Distributions data will be available through a Linked Data Registry.
GA would like to register the Population Distributions ontology at the AGLDWG repository and to apply for the following URI: linked.data.gov.au/def/population
