Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Infrastructure (AREMI)

Tuesday, 28 July, 2015 | Supplied by: National ICT Australia Ltd

AREMI — the Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Infrastructure — is a NICTA-led project providing free, open access to spatial data for the renewable energy industry. The infrastructure makes it easy for renewable energy projects to get off the ground in Australia, providing a one-stop shop for all open geospatial data relevant to the energy sector from government, industry and research.

Energy project developers can freely access spatial information such as existing electricity infrastructure to assist with site identification. State and local governments can use the open data to assist with environmental and regulatory planning approvals, and tracking and promoting projects in their region. The platform enables financiers and investors to explore the potential success of proposed ventures. It also acts as a repository for ARENA-funded mapping projects to enable their access in one consolidated location.

The project leverages the National Map initiative, an open-source, three-dimensional mapping platform which converts and visually displays information in a web browser without the need for external software or plug-ins. It facilitates access to multiple geospatially tagged data sets of various formats in one location. Users can overlay multiple data sets such as population, infrastructure, power utilities and protected habitats or even their own internal data services.
