In conjunction with John Wiley and Sons, Spatial Vision has recently completed work on the 9th Edition of the Jacaranda Atlas, the pre-eminent student atlas in Australia. This is the third edition Spatial Vision has worked on for John Wiley and Sons, and we continue to improve and expand the content of the atlas with detailed data and new design.
The latest Mapscape datapack was released in July this year. Released yearly using the latest authoritative data, it delivers high quality, pre-tiled topographic information at multiple scales. Edition 8 boasts several new layers including Coastal datasets and improved Cartography.
Currently, Victoria’s most valuable fishery is the Rock Lobster Fishery, which is accessed by both the commercial and recreational fishing sectors. While the commercial sector is highly regulated and under strict quota management, there is no information on the level of catch taken by the recreational sector or even the number of recreational fishers participating.
Geological Survey of NSW (GSNSW) engaged Spatial Vision to design and develop a new release of their MinView web mapping application. MinView is a web-based delivery system that uses your internet browser to deliver an interactive mapping application in which you can display and explore the Department’s rich collection of geoscientific data.

Metes and bounds is a system or method of describing land, real estate or administrative boundaries. The system has been used in Britain for many centuries, and is still used in many land jurisdictions based on British common law.
Typically the system uses physical features of the local geography, along with directions and distances, to define and describe the boundaries of a parcel of land, an administrative boundary or some other human-defined boundary. The boundaries are described in a running prose style, working around the feature in sequence, from a point of beginning, returning to the same point.
Spatial Vision was engaged by Goulburn Broken CMA to develop a Citizen Science App.
The iSpy Catchment Creatures app allows anyone to record a sound, take a photo and map where the species was sighted. If you're not quite sure what the species is, there is an easy scroll-through menu with clear pictures to help identify what you are looking at.
