New website for mapping community projects

Submitted by veriad on Tue, 30/06/2009 - 08:15

Taranaki Educational Resource: Research, Analysis and Information Network aims to provide open source software solutions to community groups who want to use Geographic Information Systems to analyse their data and display the maps on the www.

This project was made possible through the Digital Strategy Fund "Community Partnership Fund 112" during the year 2008 - 2009.

Some of the participating community groups link their mapping service to a digital library of images, documents and film, called Kete. Under access agreements the public use of the information will be allowed for non-profit purposes.

Visit the Taranaki community groups, and the NZHS, on this website http://www.terrain.net.nz/.

We hope that the NZHS will be able to map national habitat restoration projects which have special reference to lizards. Please contact us or send us any information you may like to display, using our 'contact us' page.
