Geospatial: Roads and address validation for the Sunshine Coast Regional Council area

The Department of Resources engaged ASA to validate and update critical roads and address data covering the Sunshine Coast Regional Council area using ArcGIS Pro.


21,000 roads across 4,200km

43,000 addresses

356,000 population

100,000 new property access points





Inaccurate and incomplete road and address data used by multiple end users, including emergency services


ASA conducted thousands of geometry and attribution updates using Geographic Information Systems

Social Impact

11 analysts trained in regional Queensland and brought out of longterm unemployment, leading to ongoing work on different projects

“It is fantastic to be working alongside such a dedicated team that not only values neurodiversity but also contributes significantly to projects that impact the daily lives of Queenslanders. It’s exciting to see the collaboration between ASA and the Department of Resources as we advance in location data accuracy and data validation methods.”
