Are you involved with a Natural Resource Management group? Do you want to learn how to map your projects, capture your amazing work and create quick easy maps to share? Then this free GRID workshop is for you.

Built specifically for Natural Resource Management groups, GRID (Geographic & Reporting Information Database) is an easy-to-use mapping system that is revolutionising how the NACC maps. Designed by Gaia Resources, GRID is available to help environment groups in the NACC region easily capture and manage their spatial information.

NACC is inviting anyone interested in learning how to use GRID to come along to NACC’s NRM Mapping Workshop on Tuesday, 19 June.

NACC GIS Coordinator Emma Jackson said GRID gives community groups the ability to map their own projects – something that they haven’t been able to do easily before.

“Revegetation sites, weed control sites or clean-up events, are just a few examples of what community groups could be mapping and recording – keeping track of this work will play a vital role in planning and applying for future project funding.”

Plus, it’s so easy to use and displays project information in a simple format that can then be shared with partners and community.”

This project is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State Natural Resource Management Program, supported by Royalties for Regions and the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
