Mapping the Gympie Region
We invite you to a presentation by Bernard Fitzpatrick on early European maps through to modern satellite imagery over the Gympie Region.
Maps are two-dimensional representations of a theme of a locale. They are records of how an area was understood at the time the map was produced. These historic snapshots can provide valuable information for those studying the history of a place. However, nearly anywhere on the Earth’s surface has since the 1970s, been regularly captured as image datasets by satellites. These image datasets can and do provide valuable science information from regional weather and climate data through to high detailed land cover information.
Bernard Fitzpatrick is a geographer with major project experience in Australia, Sumatra, and Southern Sudan. He has a personal connection to Gympie through family links dating back to 1869.
