Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges NRM Board

By Chris Walsham

The Adelaide and Mt Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board manages, protects and restores the region’s precious natural resources.

The board required mobile GIS and supporting tools to help their field officers with land management and pest control.  They also required the data captured by the field officers to be consolidated into a central database so that their activities could be reported, monitored and better managed.

RIA Mobile GIS developed an integrated system that allowed the relevant data to be downloaded to mobile computers; applications and forms to assist with the capture of land management and pest control issues for each property and the synchronisation of the newly captured data with central databases at different levels. The Adelaide and Mount Lofty region is broken for administrative reasons into service areas which in turn are broken into regions.  Each region is responsible for their own data but the databases for each region need to be regularly combined into a service area database and each of these in turn need to be combined into a single central database for the entire Adelaide and Mount Lofty region.  RIA Mobile GIS provided the automated tools to perform the aggregation of the databases.  Synchronization of field data was also established so that it could operate at either the region, service area or total region level.
