Darron Passlow, one of the more frequent contributors to this site has suggested here and in other forums that a Visual Library for Asset Condition Rating would be a very useful tool for local government. The idea of the library is to build up a collection of photos of assets in various conditions that could be used to develop a series of condition assessment guidelines similar to the Corowa Shire Council Sealed Roads Condition Inspection Booklet, but for all asset types for which a visual inspection can be used to determine asset condition. Preparing condition inspection guidelines is not a simple task, and a bit of thought will need to go into how the project is set up, BUT taking photos is pretty easy, and there are many other uses for photos of Council assets & activities. The Local Government & Municipal Knowledge Base is all about Councils sharing information & encouraging the creation of an Australian Municipal Photo Library is the sort of thing that we as a group should be doing. A new link has been added to the side menu titled "Photo Library". If you have any photos that you would like to contribute to the project please visit the page & start uploading.
