The National Data Network (NDN) Business Office welcomes the NSW Department of Planning to the demonstration phase of the NDN. The NSW Department of Planning joins the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) in having nodes up and running. A number of other agencies are also installing nodes (a metadata library of what data agencies have made available in the NDN) with a view to becoming active participants very soon.

An upgrade of the software has seen improvements in searching and access control. Software to control access to restricted data will be made available. This will enable nodes to load the metadata for those products which require restricted access to the data. The node upgrade will allow agencies to share restricted datasets and services such as the addresscoder@ABS, with members signed to other nodes. Currently restricted data and services are made available to members signed to that node or sponsored by the organisation. Currently also in development is a Mesh Block coder with facility to code single addresses and bulk code up to 3,000 addresses.

For more information on the demonstration NDN contact Anne Bartlett on (02) 9268 4154, or the ABS National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070, email
