Infrastructure mapping

Easy to use, access to high resolution imagery and provides producers nationally standardised data for easy access to other tools.

The initial step in setting up the online property planning and information system for a property is to map the location and details of existing or planned infrastructure across the property, including fences, water points, pipelines, roads, yards and other features .

This creates an asset register, and the program offers detailed options to accurately describe each asset. Once fencelines have been drawn on maps they will join to form a to create a paddock, which can be named for future reference and their perimeter and area accurately measured.

We were keen to use this data in a predictive (rather than just reactive) manner, to help site future water infrastructure and fencelines, identify land and vegetation types and even re-route drainage lines to reduce erosion and rehabilitate degraded land.
