NearMap

This site allows the user to view aerial images of Australian settlements. On the top right hand side of the site users can view the images of the January Queensland floods. In particular users can zoom in and clearly identify areas on inundation in Brisbane and Ipswich. Local Governments need to read and adhere to the license agreements of NearMap before using any of the images.

In Our Backyard

Part of climate change adaptation in our major cities will include considerations of land use planning for renewable energy and energy security. This report discusses possible options for renewable energy systems on large buildings. This resource may be useful for councils who are reviewing/creating acceptable solutions and other development assessment criteria for renewable energy systems on buildings.
