What we can help with

water catchment and flow icon

Water catchment and flow

Show all of your land, where the water flows to, and accumulated flow. We are using the Strahler modelling algorithm to show how captured water is naturally handled.

1km buffer icon

1km buffer

The 1km buffer map shows water catchment and water flows in relation to your farm, where it flows from neighbouring property, as well as where it flows as it exits your property. Zoom in to inspect property boundaries.
steepness icon


Investigate slopes in order to see if a grazing permit is required. This can be difficult to work out but by using your farm map (supplied by you) we can break the slope of your farm into 5° wedges, and show each paddock both as square meters and percentage of area.
general location icon

General location

Examine waterways and rivers on and surrounding your property as well as public land, caves and mines. We can also include a snapshot of key weather statistics such as rain, wind maximum/minimum and ground temperature.
