Project: Management of plant pests on Rangitoto Island, Hauraki Gulf, Auckland.

provision of high quality weed control

participation in strategic planning
high quality data capture, storage, analysis and presentation
production of maps



This map shows examples of a GIS spatial database, monitoring transects, spatial analysis, and remote sensing.
