The Eureka Stockade: an interactive history portal contains historical overlays and points of interest in the Ballarat area around the time of the Eureka Stockade. This dynamic map is an interactive spatial interface to the underlying information. The data which is displayed on the map can be manipulated. A transparency tool has been provided for each map layer to enable a clear differentiation between the underlying modern map layer and the historical map overlay. The historic maps are located within the Geoffrey Blainey Research Centre, Federation University Australia. The majority of map data covers the period 1850s to 1870s, but later maps include data from the early 20th century. The system is regularly being refined and updated. Sites of specific relevance and interest to the Eureka Stockade history are indicated and have links to more specific information about them. The website is part of an interoperable web-GIS maintained by the Centre for eResearch and Digital Innovation(CeRDI) at Federation University Australia (FedUni).
Fire and Emergency Management Planning is part of an interoperable web-GIS maintained by Federation University Australia. The site provides comprehensive information on the fire and emergency management planning activities being undertaken at the state, regional and municipal levels. The range of data displayed includes location of forestry plantations and public land; planning, political and agency boundaries; fire incident data; and meteorological data. Federation University Australia's Centre for eResearch and Digital Innovation is leading the project on behalf of Emergency Management Victoria. In addition, the Barwon South West Interoperable Spatial Knowledge Base is an Integrated Fire Management Planning (IFMP) initiative, administered by the Barwon South West Regional Strategic Fire Management Planning Committee on behalf of the Victorian State Fire Management Planning Committee. This collaborative project utilises existing data plus open source data overlayed on asset landscapes in order to provide the most current relevant information, including fire risk data, in a manner that supports the community to develop their integrated regional and local fire management plans.
