Abstract

Fundamental to an understandng and management of risk is reliable information about what is exposed to natural hazards and threats. Exposure includes people, buildings, business activity and critical infrastructure. Geoscience Australia (GA) has undertaken the development of the National Exposure Information System (NEXIS) which is a significant national capability to provide reliable and up-to-date information for decision makers. NEXIS collects, collates, manages and provides the information required to assess community exposure, impacts and risk. Presently the capability consistently defines national residential and business exposure using a largely statistical approach with information aggregated at buildings level. The exposure information is derived from the best available datasets and includes a broad range of useful information fields. Progressively this information is transitioning to more specific information in collaboration with a range of data custodians. Furthermore, the capability is being extended to institutional buildings (schools, hospitals, government buildings, emergency assets etc.) and infrastructure assets. Alignment of future development to the needs of stakeholders is vital.
