Abstract: The Spatial Futures Forum, held in Sydney in September 2017, highlighted issues that governments, emergency management organisations, academics and spatial systems research and development groups should carefully consider as they work towards a future that provides ‘inter-connectedness with inclusiveness’ for individuals and the societies in which they live. This is especially important when we consider the implications for disaster management when situational awareness and community resilience will be reliant on the: successful connection and integration of the ‘islands’ of spatial information generated by and stored in current systems; development of a real-time ‘data on demand’ approach to spatial systems; and the development and careful curation of an individual’s ‘virtual identity’ from an ethical, legal, property ownership and risk perspective.
