Getting into the GRID of things

Central Regional TAFE (CRTAFE) students and community members flocked to NACC’s community GRID (Geographic & Reporting Information Database) training session last week to learn how to use the new mapping system that NACC is making freely available to its local NRM groups.

GRID allows anyone with a login to be able to map their own NRM surveys and on-ground works. By making this technology freely available to local community groups, NACC hopes to enable groups to record and promote the amazing work they do throughout the region.

“As a CRTAFE student and community group member, I was excited to receive training in GRID,” said Cameron Perrett, CRTAFE Diploma of Conservation and Land Management student.

“Being able to upload and see works done in the region is a helpful tool for not only myself but all community and NRM groups,” he said.

NACC GIS & Sustainability Coordinator Emma Jackson said she was keen to hear from anyone who would like to learn how to map their group’s activities, and welcomed them to please get in touch by email at: [email protected] or by phone on 9938 0104, to sign up for the next community training session which will be held in Moora on Monday 7 August.
