All Hazards Spatial Infrastructure Project Background

​​​​​LIST (Land Information System Tasmania) is a whole-of-government online infrastructure that helps users find and use information about land and property in Tasmania.

The key components of the LIST are 

  • LISTmap
  • Properties and Titles
  • LISTdata
  • the Common Operating Platform (COP), and 
  • LIST Spatial Web Services.  

LISTmap/COP and the LIST Spatial Web Services are critical components that support emergency services, especially during emergency incidents.

The Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements was established on 20 February 2020 in response to the extreme bushfire season of 2019-20 (also referred to as the Black Summer Bushfires) which resulted in loss of life, property and wildlife and environmental destruction.

The Royal Commission examined:

  • coordination
  • preparedness for natural disasters
  • response to and recovery from disasters
  • improving resilience
  • adapting to changing climatic conditions
  • mitigating the impact of natural disasters. 

The inquiry also considered the legal framework for Commonwealth involvement in responding to national emergencies. 

​The Project has been established as part of the Tasmanian Government's commitment to implement recommendations from the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements​ - specifically Chapter 4; Supporting better decisions, Recommendations 4.1-4.4. ​

The Project will deliver a new LISTmap and Common Operating Platform (COP).
