TLF ID M012442

This is an one of several interactive web-based mapping resources available from this web page. Land Custodians focuses on the custodianship of land within the Australian Capital Territory. It is a GIS (Geographic Information Systems) resource that allows users to assemble information about land usage as spatially mapped data. Users apply data layers to base maps or aerial photographs which they can view at a variety of scales. They can create project files to store and continue to work on maps they have created. Through selecting and applying data layers, users create, interpret and analyse spatial associations on customised maps.

Educational details

Educational value
  • This resource may be somewhat useful for the Landscapes unit of the year 8 Geography curriculum, and of some value for the unit's content description about identifying different types of landscapes and their geomorphic landform features. The resource is very useful for the content description about creating and interpreting maps, using graphic representation, spatial information and communication technologies as applied to thematic and topographic maps.
  • This resource can contribute to students attaining the achievement standard in year 8 Geography by enabling them to identify, apply and use sources of primary and secondary data, and to interpret maps of various scales to analyse spatial patterns. With the option of using aerial photographs, mark-up tools and specific analytical tools, this is a powerful tool for map interpretation.
