Media Release : New online property management a “game changer” for the pastoral industry

Please read our latest media release about the Spatial Hub’s online property management tool that directors of Cape York pastoral company, Olive Vale, believe will change land management practices across Australia.

A central element of the 15 year Blueprint of the Australian Rangelands Initiative, the NRM Spatial Hub project has developed spatial mapping and monitoring technologies for use by grazing properties and the broader pastoral industry.

Hub Program Manager Phil Tickle, and GIS and Farm Planning Specialist Lee Blacklock, recently travelled to Laura and surrounds to participate in the Cape York NRM Beef Cattle Producer Roundtable, and meet with a number of graziers participating in the project’s demonstration phase, including Paul Ryan from Olive Vale Pastoral Pty Ltd

Mr Ryan said the presentation of the Hub’s Online Property, Planning and Information System (OPPIS) was a real eye opener.

“The ability to access detailed mapping with multiple functions, like layering, will change land management across the country,” Mr Ryan said.
