Landgate nationally recognised for innovation
Landgate has received national recognition for its innovation achievements by being named the 22nd most innovative company in Australia.
The Australian Financial Review 2016 Most Innovative Companies list was announced last night during an awards ceremony in Sydney.
The list was compiled after a rigorous research process by a panel of industry experts.
Landgate established an innovation program in 2008 and this year launched its location and innovation hub SPUR.
SPUR General Manager Jodi Cant said innovation was an integral part of Landgate’s culture.
“Landgate’s leadership across the innovation space has been widely acknowledged in Western Australia and it is fantastic to have this national recognition,” Ms Cant said.
“This judging panel not only reviewed how innovation shapes our organisation, it also assessed two of our top innovations, the New Land Registry and Pastures from Space Plus.
“The New Land Registry is a cloud-based computing platform that has revolutionised the way land transactions are done in Western Australia by replacing inefficient, time consuming paper-based processing.
“Pastures from Space Plus is an online tool that uses satellite imagery and other data to empower farmers to make important management decisions about their properties.”
