On 23 September 2009, the WA office of the ABS launched one of its most successful collaborative pieces of work to date, The Spotlight on the Pilbara.
Supported by the Minister for Regional Development, Brendon Grylls, the regional spotlight initiative presents a series of community indicator frameworks developed in partnership between the ABS, the nine WA Regional Development Commissions, and the WA Department of Regional Development and Lands.
The Spotlight Project brings together selected statistical information about each region from a wide variety of sources to provide a practical framework for use in regional strategic management and policy development.

The WA Land Information System International Forum is one of the premier Geographic Information System conferences in Australia, attracting over 800 delegates from a diverse range of professions. Held every 18 months, the Forum provides an opportunity to address issues related to all aspects of location-based information.
The theme of this year was “Business Intelligence, Business Solutions & Education” and the WA office of the ABS demonstrated some of the useful mapping tools freely available off the ABS website. This was to assist people with using location-based information and to demonstrate the collaboration and sharing of geographic information across different sectors.
The next WALIS Forum in 2011 will be held in conjunction with the International Society for Digital Earth Symposium (ISDE 7).
These documents will be presented in a new window.
