Queensland govt readies open source analytics

A desire to make spatial decision making more transparent has led the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Water to develop a Web-based application called Spatialise, which is on the verge of being released as an open source project.

To help managers with group decision making, in 1999 the department developed the open source application Facilitator which helps prioritize options given a set of criteria.

However, for "where?" questions Facilitator required all possible locations to be entered and was tied to the PC desktop.
