Notification for Editing Service (NES)
NES is the latest step in the State's spatial vision "to support government delivery on outcomes by providing ubiquitous access to authoritative location based services across businesses for users of all levels of expertise."
NES is a new notification for editing service for Victoria's core or framework datasets. It represents a major step forward in the ongoing drive to keep Victoria's core datasets accurate and current.
NES will bypass most of the present paperwork involved in submitting change requests and making changes to the datasets and replace it with a streamlined system of reporting, verifying, correcting and passing on the new data to users. The data changes might involve a new subdivision and new streets in a developing area, incorrectly named streets, a small bridge that has been washed away or rendered unsafe, a country road in a remote area which, while it appears to be a road on aerial imagery, is not a road at all but simply a well-worn animal track and not accessible by vehicles.
The new service will ultimately reduce from weeks to hours the time it takes to change any of Victoria's core or framework spatial datasets and make the new information available to users.
The main users of this information being firefighters, police, ambulance drivers or the operators of Victoria's 000 emergency call centre. For them, inaccurate data can often mean the difference between life and death.
