CDATA 2001 and the CDATA User Group

CDATA 2001
Analysis of the User Views on 2001 Census Proposed Products and Services questionnaire has identified that there is strong demand for both a CDATA 2001- Full GIS version, similar to that produced for 1996 Census, and a new, less complex version, CDATA 2001 - Quickbuild. Detailed feedback received from CDATA96 users over the past three years has significantly contributed to the design specifications of both versions of CDATA 2001. Prototypes are expected to be available for testing in late 2001.

CDATA User Group
There has been an excellent response from clients regarding the formation of a CDATA User Group. The endorsement of this ABS initiative by the CDATA user community indicates a high level of interest in the CDATA products. Establishment of the Messageboard facility and delivery of the initial newsletter is scheduled for release in the near future.

Membership is free and anyone interested in gaining maximum value from CDATA96 or who is interested in the development of CDATA 2001 is encouraged to join the group. To join simply send an e-mail to
census.users@abs.gov.au and type CDATA User Group in the subject heading.
