This project will develop high-quality spatial data to help landholders, regulators, and the gas industry to evaluate design and placement of gas infrastructure, protect surface water and vegetation, and reduce erosion, soil damage and dust. Part of this work will include development of novel communication tools to improve exchange of data between groups.

This research will use modern data visualization techniques to present spatial data relating to landscape processes in the Beetaloo Sub-basin in a “virtual landscape” using augmented reality technology. This allows complex processes such as hydrology, soil loss or pasture dynamics to be more easily understood, and to communicate best practice management of potential environmental risk.
