Selected examples of client projects:
Central Geelong CLUE
The Census of Land Use and Employment (CLUE) offers information about economic activity, tracks changes in land use, and identifies key trends in employment for strategic and investment planning.
The City of Greater Geelong CLUE project provides a portrait of the changing nature of life in Central Geelong. A census of over 3500 assessments of commercial, industrial and residential properties within Central Geelong that covers seven suburbs.
We scoped this large-scale project and managed the implementation and delivery to provide the City of Greater Geelong and key stakeholders with information on land use, industry and employment data at street, block and suburb level.
In future this information can be monitored and measured to enable trend analysis at a suburb, region, city and state level.
“The City of Greater Geelong is the first Victorian Council to have an integrated, online CLUE system for data collection, analysis and reporting”.
