Mapping and its application to natural history
6 September 2019, 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.
