As part of the Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping (ICSM), Geoscience Australia has received a Spatial Strategy award at the 2007 Victorian Spatial Excellence Awards.

These awards celebrate the achievements of top spatial information enterprises and showcase the finest projects that the Victorian Spatial Industry has to offer. Projects attaining recognition at this premier event are deemed to be truly outstanding achievers in their field.

The ICSM, with partners Spatial Vision, were awarded for their report on All-Hazards Map Symbology. The report identifies the gap analysis of the symbols used by Emergency Services within Australia and New Zealand.

This report is part of an approach to establish an Australasian All-Hazards Symbol library, and is the result of a review undertaken by Spatial Vision in 2006-07. The review was fully funded by ICSM.

The Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping was established by the Prime Minister, State Premiers, and the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory in 1988.
