ANZLIC—the Spatial Information Council is the peak intergovernmental organisation providing leadership in the collection, management and use of spatial information in Australia and New Zealand.

Foundation Spatial Data Framework

The Foundation Spatial Data Framework (FSDF) provides a common reference for the assembly and maintenance of Australian and New Zealand foundation level spatial data in order to serve the widest possible variety of users. It will deliver a national coverage of the best available, most current, authoritative source of foundation spatial data which is standardised and quality controlled. The FSDF is an ANZLIC sponsored initiative.

Modernisation of the FSDF is a key initiative under the ANZLIC Strategic Plan 2020-24, this includes a review of the FSDF to scope potential alignment with the
UN-GGIM's 14 fundamental geospatial themes. In May 2020, ANZLIC endorsed the inclusion of four additional themes to the FSDF, namely:
Buildings and Settlements; Population Distributions; Geology and Soils; and Physical Infrastructure. Moving forward, jurisdictions will collaborate though ICSM to investigate options and approaches for the inclusion of these four additional data themes.
