Over the years, we have worked with South Coast NRM on several Dieback initiatives, including online systems such as DIDMS (based on our BDRS product), and a range of other projects. For one of these projects, we have been working in 2013 on the State-wide Dieback Investment and Management Framework.
This project has involved a large amount of spatial analysis, compiling a range of datasets and analysing the results to provide a robust method of assessing areas in the south-west of Western Australia for their environmental values (e.g. threatened species) and their likelihood of infestation from the Dieback pathogen.
This has been a long running project, involving workshops, significant spatial analysis and ongoing research. The results include the definition of a range of templates (both spatial and in terms of documentation) to help land managers evaluate land for future investment for Dieback control.
