Cultural Countries Mapping

NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change

We were engaged by the then NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC), now the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH), to produce two maps and a poster depicting Aboriginal Cultural Country Areas and Local Aboriginal Land Council Areas in NSW.

The project included:

  • The capture of Aboriginal Cultural Country data in a Geographic Information System (GIS)
  • The design of the map and poster layouts
  • Incorporation of various comments to refine the map and poster products.

The map and poster included information such as major towns, roads, state boundaries, coastline and major rivers. Publishing quality files were provided to the Department of Environment and Climate Change to enable a large print run of the poster and maps for distribution throughout NSW to interested stakeholders.
