Moonee Valley benefits from NBN enabled council services

Receives more than $340,000 in funding to deliver the online 3D mapping/modelling application

Residents in Moonee Valley, Victoria, will soon be able to participate in local development application processes through a project funded by the Rudd Labor Government’s Digital Local Government program.

Minister Assisting for the Digital Economy, Senator Kate Lundy, recently launched the new 3D mapping/modelling project, enabling the local residents with access to the council’s development application process via the 3D mapping/modelling application to make planning more transparent.

In addition, the map overlays will be used to display real time information concerning planned roadwork, council services, activities and events.

Moonee Valley City Council will receive more than $340,000 in funding to deliver the online 3D mapping/modelling application, with Council contributing about $131,500. The quantum of funding is subject to the negotiation of a funding deed.

Moonee Valley City Council Mayor, Narelle Sharpe, said the project is only possible with high speed broadband, which is already showing the capacity to revolutionise the way local governments provide services.

“The NBN is helping to put residents and ratepayers at the heart of local government service delivery – which is where they should be. The NBN bandwidth also allows us to make 3D mapping and modelling of proposed developments and council services a reality,” Sharpe said.

She said information sharing applications over the NBN are a great way to enhance frontline support delivered by councils to their communities; both for general customer service and for services that require significant consultation, such as building and development applications.

Sharpe mentioned that the project will result in better, more accessible and more convenient services, delivered more efficiently and with less hassle.

She claimed that in addition to increasing opportunities to participate in important local issues, the residents will also save time and money by not having to travel into council’s head office or find and pay for parking.

Moonee Valley City Council is partnering with Yarra City Council on this project.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
