Property computer mapping can help plan infrastructure, monitor and improve productivity. It can assist with the management and planning of infrastructure like fences and irrigation lines, calculating paddock areas, monitoring water points and implementing management tools like cell grazing schemes and fire management plans.
With the right mapping software landholders can access mapping data via the internet from satellite imagery to the latest state government mapping data. Having the capacity to access this data provides you with a means of creating an effective property map.
Attendees to our workshops receive satellite imagery and some state government mapping data of their properties and are taught how to build on it using mapping software to create an effective property map.Digital Mapping workshops
Digital mapping is a highly effective property management tool, helping producers improve productivity and planning, coordinating pest management programs, prepare funding applications such as Reef Rescue grants, and for undertaking grazing land management.
For landholders impacted by CSG, a comprehensive property map and plan will put you in the best position to demonstrate how CSG activities will impact your property and to negotiate where and when a CSG company can conduct its mining activities.
AgForce Projects currently delivers free digital mapping workshops
in the Surat, Galilee and Bowen through the Landholder CSG Support Project
. These workshops include a demo only version of Phoenix Mapping.
