Built specifically for Natural Resource Management groups, GRID (Geographic & Reporting Information Database) is an easy-to-use mapping system that is revolutionising how 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 Coastal & Marine Project Manager, Hamish Longbottom said “GRID’s awesome! It’s so easy to use and displays project information in a simple format that can then be shared with partners and community.”

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.

NACC is inviting anyone interested in learning how to use GRID to come along to NACC’s GRID Training Day on 25 July 2017.

Date:  25 July 2017

Location: Durack- Batavia Coast Maritime Institute (BCMI) computer lab. Willcock Drive, Separation Point, Geraldton.

This project is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program, supported by Royalties for Regions.
