Sport and Recreation Spatial


SRS logo FINALSport and Recreation Spatial is a collaborative venture of Federation University Australia and Victoria University. Sport and Recreation Spatial provides a national geographic information system (GIS) for presenting spatial data relevant to all levels of the sport and recreation sector. From an industry perspective this provides a strong evidence base and an increased capacity for research, strategic planning, and development of participation programs and facilities.

The latest re-engineered version of the GIS has just been launched. It is at: http://www.sportandrecreationspatial.com.au/maps

The Sport and Recreation Spatial team are conducting an associated program of research which is addressing questions of national and international significance in areas including participation levels and trends; influences on participation, the health benefits of sports participation and the nexus between facilities and participation.

Director, Associate Professor Rochelle Eime, says Sport and Recreation spatial “Makes it easier for the sport sector to understand participation trends and sports facility provision.”

Amanda Basu, Strategic Projects Manager, Netball Victoria has praised the capacity of the interface for providing enhanced data and results.

“The new Sports Spatial interface is easy to use. It offers reporting options which present our participation data against factors relevant to our sport now and in the future.  It also enables us to create reports for external stakeholders and also assist in our internal decision making.”

The Sport and Recreation Spatial team are looking to expand participation by other sporting organisations and would welcome the opportunity to discuss further with representatives from interested organisations.
