2011 GITA Excellence Award
As the world's leading association in the geospatial technology field, GITA is constantly working to raise the profile of spatial technology in all industries and to recognise the efforts of the organisations and people who transform ideas into a working reality.
A hallmark of GITA has long been the stewardship and leadership afforded by its members who have unselfishly shared their experiences, actively filled the mentor role, pushed the technology and increased the business and community benefits.
GITA Australia & New Zealand Division introduced the Excellence Award Program in 1992.
The GITA Awards Program relies on experts in the field who inform the association of outstanding achievements by organisations using geospatial technologies.
The Awards Committee comprises GITA (Aust & NZ) Past-Presidents and other invited industry experts, as and when required.
It’s with much pleasure that we announce Water Corporation as the winner of the 2011 GITA Excellence Award. Congratulations.
The 2011 finalists were …
• Water Corporation (of Western Australia)
Water Corporation tackled a problem that is almost ubiquitous across the industry and in the case of the Water Corporation, has a scale that many would seek to avoid. Acknowledging internal mistakes of the past that lead to a situation that precluded data sharing, Water Corporation has worked hard to rectify the problem by encouraging collaboration in the geospatial community in WA and engaging with the relevant authorities to achieve an outcome for the benefit of the whole state. Water Corporation has proven itself as an outstanding leader in the GITA community through its openness and willingness to share its experiences with its peers across the country.
