Abstract

The development and use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) constitute a critical component of almost all infrastructure development and is a billion dollar industry. Writing from an Australian legal perspective, this article surveys some of the legal risks and uncertainties regarding the development, use and commercialisation of GIS. The authors proffer a number of practical suggestions regarding legal risk management strategies which businesses and governments may utilise in relation to GIS.
