An international award has been won by a geospatial information technology project developed by PSMA Australia.
The Exemplary Systems in Government Awards, presented in the USA by the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA), recognises extraordinary achievement in the use of automated information systems.
PSMA Systems, developed by Canberra-based PSMA Australia, has been selected to receive a URISA 2012 Exemplary Systems in Government (ESIG) Award in the Enterprise Systems Category. PSMA Australiaâ€™s PSMA Systems was deemed exemplary by the 2012 ESIG Committee and chosen from an extremely competitive group of candidates.
PSMA Australia has now been invited to attend URISAâ€™s 50th Annual Conference for GIS Professionals in Portland, Oregon in October to accept the award and deliver a presentation on the technology at the international conference.
Dan Paull, PSMA Australia Chief Executive Officer said that PSMA Australia was honoured to receive this prestigious award, the second international award collected by PSMA Systems this year.
â€œIn April, PSMA Systems was recognised by the presentation of the Geospatial World Policy Award for Exemplary Implementation of Geospatial Policies and Programs at the Geospatial World Forum in Amsterdam.
â€œPSMA Systems has also been recognised locally, winning the 2012 GITA Excellence Award presented at the Geospatial Information & Technology Conference in Melbourne in early August.â€œ
Dan said that PSMA Systems represents world-leading technology for managing and accessing geospatial data and is the engine that produces Australiaâ€™s fundamental national spatial datasets, developed from authoritative government sources
â€œPSMA Systems has reduced delivery times, improved data quality and provided more flexible access to Australiaâ€™s authoritative datasets.
â€œIt also provides a technology platform that makes it easier, faster and more cost effective for all types of organisations to extract the value inherent in these and other spatial datasets, particularly in terms of the integration of geospatial information within standard enterprise systems.â€
