GIS Toolkits

This page is to detail resources that your fellow councils GIS speicialists have created and are using / willing to share with you so that you can benefit of an extra 'leg up' where others have already gone.



Over the coming months we will be adding to the page, so keep an eye out.

We would welcome any resources that you have and think would build on this list below so that the LGGA and it's members have a useful resource.












Business Continuity Framework

Here below is a template for setting up a business continuity plan for your spatial services within your council.


The aim is that you are able to use the ideas in here and apply them as appropriate into your council role description template.


Role Descriptions

Here below are some role descriptions that may be able to be reused in your council.


The aim is that you are able to use the ideas in here and apply them as appropriate into your council role description template.

We would welcome any other role descriptions that you think would build on this start so that we have a useful resource for others.

Creative Commons Licensing Demystified







Need some help working through the CC BY area. Below is a quick start guide on this subject.


Releasing Council Geospatial Data

Creative Commons licensing can be used to release the bulk of Geospatial data. Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 New Zealand License (CC BY 3.0) is the most appropriate licence to use.

Prior to release, the data needs to be checked to ensure:

  • It belongs to the council who intends to give it out
  • It can be provided
  • It has quality metadata
The issuing council is responsible for performing this check. If it doesn’t meet these criteria it cannot be provided.

Justification for this decision
New Zealand has a strong history of open and transparent government that is internationally recognised.  One of the pillars of open and transparent government is open government data and information.
 
Evidence suggests that opening up this information for re-use has considerable and widespread benefits to government, industry and the public.  At the same time, technological and cultural advances also make it cheaper and easier to do.
 
A number of resources have been referred to in arriving at the above standpoint. These include:
NZGOAL Advice on using the Creative Commons licenses – Legal opinion from A J Park, 14 April 2011 

Guidance and resources with more detail:


Providing council geospatial data in an email

  1. Hi Guys,

    Great toolkit. Any chance this could be updated to suggest the use of Creative Commons 4.0 as per the latest version of NZ Goal?

    Thanks for your time.
