  • Recommendation 28 - Develop a Data Infrastructure Ecosystem, starting with the Foundation Spatial Data Framework;
  • Recommendation 29 - Prepare a business case for upgrading the Foundation Spatial Data Framework from a map to a model (a real-time 3D model of the physical environment).
  • Recommendation 30 - Develop a Smart Cities Strategy and program business case;
  • Recommendation 31 - Develop a policy framework to guide investment in IoT and connected infrastructure; and
  • Recommendation 32 - Develop a policy and requirements for Smart Technology to be embedded in new and upgraded infrastructure.

The following agencies and organisations have been involved in the development, whether through participation in the Steering Committee, workshops, targeted consultation or interviews.
