The Atlas of South Australia is an initiative of the South Australian Government to provide a common access point to maps and geographic information about South Australia in an interactive atlas format. The Atlas has been sponsored by GSEC which is made up of representatives across government. GSEC nominated Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure as the lead agency in this initiative in the early stages of its development. The Atlas is an evolving service which was officially launched in June 2000. It is based on a conventional atlas format and builds on the previous paper edition of the Atlas of South Australia 1986, however, it now takes advantage of new databases and technology to deliver current information to the community in an interactive environment. The overall vision of the Atlas of South Australia is to provide access to information about South Australia through the exploration of maps and geographic features for purposes ranging from taking the user on a journey across our landscape to identifying business and development opportunities by locating services, facilities and community needs. To enable this vision to happen requires collaboration between State government agencies, local governments, academia, industry and the community.
