Spatial Vision focused on the review and refinement of data, visualisation and mapping tools to support the analysis of the multiple tangible and intangible expression of heritage within the Hoddle Grid study area, supporting the work of the project team. A focus on spatial data collection, GIS database management, and mapping and visualisation were key to the project outcomes.
Spatial Vision also designed, produced and delivered digital visualisations (maps, images etc.) for incorporation into future stages of the project. These visualisations aid in communicating the process and story behind the heritage study findings with the CoM and the broader community.
In shaping the Hoddle Grid Heritage Review, the City of Melbourne (CoM) sought to set a new benchmark for cultural heritage preservation and recognition. An important aspect of the project was to engage with specific stakeholders, bringing their knowledge and perspectives into the project, and to gain a better appreciation of community-held heritage values. Importantly, the brief sought to closely engage with the three Traditional Owner organisations that are recognised by the City of Melbourne. Report outputs explored the concept of shared heritage, the scope of contemporary Aboriginal heritage and the policy context surrounding it.
