A simple observation that statewide GIS databases of millions of people and millions of land parcels and all the teething pains that come with that...you Down Under seem to be doing fine.  These don't sprout up overnight like mushrooms after rain.  Good to see the gears turning.  From conversations I see here, good people are talking to good people and from my view of seeing these things evolve in the states here (over decades of GIS development) you are ahead in some regards and everybody is catching up with each other.  I've seen three, four, five, ten iterations in GIS systems between "state agencies" (or pretty close to that with state data) and while the county does one thing and the state does another (even though the former is a division of the other) the way all the data blend (and can even be compared to, say, railroad companies or highway departments of transportation...) things DO slowly "watch each other" and blend into a harmony.  It can take a decade, or forever.  It unfolds as it unfolds, including here and now.

Good on ya; keep up the great work.
