Podcast: Indigenous Communities and GIS

"Indigenous communities have very old and specialised traditions to look after the land and geospatial practices help us visualise that knowledge about managing country,"
- Andrew Dowding, Winyama.


Location is inherently a core part of Australia's First Nation's culture and GIS technology is now assisting in the education of all Australians by providing additional insight and context to aboriginal heritage through maps.

Listen to this episode of the podcast Location Matters where Winyama’s managing director, Andrew Dowding, discusses the connection between GIS and aboriginal communities and the importance of digitally documenting indigenous knowledge through maps.
