An exciting new mapping tool rolls out to the Land Rights network  

The NSW Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) is pleased to announce the launch of the new Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping tool.

The GIS mapping tool is an exciting development in spatial technology for the Land Rights network, which allows Local Aboriginal Land Councils (LALCs) to view and identify Crown land within their boundaries.

The benefits of the GIS mapping tool include an easier way to view and identify unclaimed Crown land, land owned by LALCs, and land currently under claim.  

LALCs will be able to to export a spreadsheet listing parcels of unclaimed Crown land to streamline the land claim process.

The GIS mapping tool can be accessed from any computer, tablet or phone with an internet connection. 

LALCs can obtain a login by contacting their Zone Director.

If you would like further information on the GIS mapping tool and how to use it, please contact Brett Chamberlain in the NSWALC ICT Unit on 02 9689 4444.


We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
