Mapping Data for World Rogaining Championships 2016
When the ARA went to source the mapping data for WRC2016 from the NT Government we discovered that the data had been misplaced and was unable to be found. After 6+ months of fruitless exchange we decided that we would need to capture a new suite of data for the event.
We have just now received the mapping data for WRC2016 including: aerial photography, digital elevation model and a contour maps with 2 metre contour interval. The data is brilliant and will allow us to have a sensational, accurate and fully up-to-date map for the event. It will also be able to be used for event promotion purposes.
The data was captured and processed in November by Aerometrex Pty Ltd (www.aerometrex.com.au) at well below the commercial cost as a contribution to the event.
Aerometrex is an aerial photography, remote imaging, mapping and modelling company based in Adelaide but operating across Australia and beyond.
Without the generous support of Aerometrex we would have struggled to get the level of data that a WRC truly deserves and the ARA are extremely appreciative of this generosity. We of course want to support those who support us and thus we ask that any rogainers who may have need in their broader lives of the types of services that Aerometrex provide that they give an opportunity to those who have so willingly supported our sport.
