Free satellite maps for Australian graziers
Satellite mapping services may be made available to graziers Australia-wide by the end of the year. Currently, the Queensland Government is funding this service to graziers in North Queensland.
Uses include carbon accounting, crop and soil monitoring, and infrastructure – such as such as roads, fences, water points, yards and powerlines – monitoring.
Mike Digby is the regional mapping services co-ordinator with the Northern Gulf Resource Management Group in Queensland. He was recently in South Australia spruiking this technology to pastoralists around Hawker.
