SRA Information Technology (SRA) has a key role to play in the South Australian Government’s Northern Economic Plan.
The Plan, launched on the 28th January 2016, is an ambitious plan that aims to create jobs, improve social issues and engage young people in the Northern suburbs of Adelaide.
The State Government worked extensively with the Playford, Salisbury and Port Adelaide Enfield councils, as well as local businesses and residents to develop the Northern Economic Plan.
Part of the project included the launch of a new Government website – LOOKNORTH – that aims to make it easier for companies and individuals to invest in the north.
The website shows maps of the Playford, Salisbury and Port Adelaide Enfield Council districts, highlighting various projects in the districts, such as the $985 million Northern Connector project and $25 million worth of public housing upgrades.
SRA’s role in this exciting government initiative was to develop and implement a geospatial mapping solution that integrates with Department of State Development and Location SA data sources. The solution was developed using a responsive design to ensure it is mobile friendly and to allow future growth.
It is expected that the mapping solution will be further developed in the future so that it can be used to showcase available land in the three districts, as well as zoning information; so investors wanting to build in the area can easily see what is available.
