Conservation and biodiversity tracked

OneFortyOne has published an interactive ArcGIS Story Map that highlights the native conservation values the business protects within its Green Triangle plantation forests.

OneFortyOne uses Geospatial Imagery Systems (GIS) to ensure that extensive, accurate, and reliable data is collected over time.

Story Maps are a great way to showcase data and how it is used to make informed decisions in the forest.

OneFortyOne Senior Geospatial Technologist Ashwood Caesar said the biodiversity within OneFortyOne’s Green Triangle Plantations ArcGIS Story Map takes viewers on an interactive journey through some of the native conservation areas across OneFortyOne’s South Australian and Victorian plantations.

“The data that is gathered by our business is incredibly valuable and can, when displayed using GIS mapping, provide a picture of activities over both space and time,” he said.

“We wanted to develop an interactive tool that showcases the native wildlife and plants living in our forests.”

The story is linked to a GIS map of the native conservation areas that fall within OneFortyOne estate across the Green Triangle Region.

Each native conservation area is colour-coded in relation to its conservation rating.

OneFortyOne Senior GIS Analyst John Cannon said using data, photography and audio OFO had been able to create a tour of some conservation areas within its forests.

“The audio and images help create an auditory and visual experience of what walking through OneFortyOne conservation areas can be like,” he said.

“GIS is a tool that we use every day. If you have ever used Google Maps, then you have used GIS.”
