I do tend to make a lot of maps, like the interactive map that we made for this project. But I also create maps used at external meetings and at our community consultation events, however, the job is so much more than that! I also analyse a lot of data which assists the project in deciding what goes where, this includes studying submarine wrecks and geological features at a resolution never seen before.
GIS technology has advanced considerably in the past decade and I enjoy trialling out new tools, which allow us to present project information in new and exciting ways. I’m currently obtaining two surveys, one using a drone and the other with a plane, which will generate detailed and up to date information on the proposed cable corridor.
