The Atlas illustrates what can be achieved by partnerships between government and the private sector. The Atlas provides a wide range of mapping information across the Territory to anyone government, business, and community groups anywhere in the world through the Internet. Users can select different data sets and create their own maps on-line. It also links directly to the NT Spatial Data Directory, which provides information on whether data exists and how to obtain it. More data sets will be made available through the Atlas over the next 12 months. I understand the NT Atlas has been very well received interstate and is considered leading edge Web mapping technology. It shows that, though small, the spatial information industry in the NT is at the forefront of national and international developments in this field. The Atlas can be found at www.lpe.nt.aov.au/atlas Finally, earlier this year the Government approved redevelopment of the Land Administration Information System (LAIS). The new system will use the latest spatial information technology and, because the NT Government encompasses a wider range of land administration functions than the States or Commonwealth, is expected to put the NT at the forefront of land information systems technology when completed in December 2001. http://www.lpe.nt.aov.au/atlas
