JARR Interactive Mapper
The Interactive Mapper is a Community Web Mapping Portal (cwmp), designed by Melbourne company Spatial Vision in a partnership with The Norman Wettenhall Foundation, an environment group and philanthropic trust whose focus is on biodiversity preservation, landscape restoration, and community education.
Via the JARR project (a project sponsored by The Norman Wettenhall Foundation) BLG have been given access to use the interactive mapper.
The purpose of the mapper is to record (on the map) areas where items of interest have been found or are available particularly in line with the interests of the group. One example which used the system, in the Castlemaine area, was for people to record sightings of the Brush-Tailed Phascogales. The data collected from this mapping was used to support the groups submission to the Minister of Environment and Climate change in regards loss of habitat for the Phascogale in an area where construction work was scheduled to take place.
The cwmp is based on google earth and CFA maps.
If members have concerns about aspects in their area, or the general JARR area, be it in relation to plants, animals, birds, water pollution, soil degradation, etc. then this is a tool which we can use to record such matters from which we can determine a course of action to take to alleviate the concerns.
