The Australian Consortium for the Asian Spatial Information and Analysis Network (ACASIAN) is an academic and applied research activity specializing in Geographical Information System (GIS) databases for Asia (China in particular) and the former Soviet Union. In its original manifestation, ACASIAN fulfilled Griffith University's leading role in the SIIASA and SIIRCEASA consortia, and Griffith University continues to licence its spatial datasets, and those Crissman has subsequently produced, for academic, research, and commercial purposes, doing so as licensed by Griffith University through Crissman's private company operting as the Asian Spatial Information and Analysis Network, AB19477223.

ACASIAN is always eager to explore opportunities for collaborative research with institutions and individual scholars who are interested in using Griffith's spatial datasets for mutually beneficial projects. Contact lcrissman@optusnet.com.au to initiate discussions.
