Mapping and its application to natural history

6 September, 7:30 pm-9:00 pm

Our guest speaker tonight is Nat Raisbeck-Brown, Experimental Spatial Scientist, CSIRO

Maps are a powerful way to visualise science. They can make complex science accessible to a wide audience. Maps are great for showing change over time and are of great importance for visualising how species’ distributions change. Working directly from the ALA website https://www.ala.org.au/ Nat will be showing us:

  • How to find species recorded in your area
  • How to show species distributions on a map of Australia – and predict where they might be
  • How to show environmental and species information on a map of Australia
  • How to record a sighting.

Depending on available time she may also show us:

  • How to generate field guides of local species
  • How to find species recorded in a defined region – like a national park
  • How to find endangered species from a records list.

Cost: $3 door fee includes raffle ticket, tea & coffee; please bring your own mug!


Note: You can now pay using a credit or debit card, even for small amounts, using our new ‘Square’ payment system.
