CDATA96 Case Study - NSW Attorney General's Department

          Bruce Kelly of the NSW Attorney General's Department describes how they have been using CDATA96 to realise the full potential of its existing business information systems.

"Attorney Generals have coded all 161 Local Court locations across NSW and constructed areas (made up of postcodes) that represent Local Court districts. What this enables us to do quickly and effectively is access any of the information contained on CDATA96 for our own areas rather than aggregating postal areas together each time data is required.

In addition Attorney General's has imported our own information on crime rates to use CDATA96 as a database containing all information the department has regarding the court districts. The result for our organisation is full access to a tailored mix of spatial demographic and business information to assist in service delivery planning and capital asset acquisition."
