FOSS4G SotM Oceania 2019 tree planting day

adam steer-2
Hi all

I'm excited to report that the FOSS4G SotM Oceania 2019 tree planting program has been scheduled for 15 August 2020. Here is the Parks Victoria event information:

https://www.parkconnect.vic.gov.au/Volunteer/public-planned-activity/?id=c38ff798-914c-ea11-b698-0003ff6f5db4

If you want to attend and plant trees, great! You need to register as a volunteer with Parks Victoria using the ‘Register with ParkConnect’ button on the link above.

We hope to run some free, volunteer-run mapping events on/around the day. Full details TBA, some ideas are:
- conduct a pre-planting aerial survey (subject to Parks Victoria approval)
- collect locations of all the trees (potentially also running a hands on QField / Input workshop)
- add trees to OSM (along with any other salient features that are missing)

Ideally everyone attending will also help plant trees - so please register with ParkConnect if you plan to attend in any capacity.

Again, thanks to this community and especially the FOSS4G SotM Oceania organising committee for their moral and financial support. I'd like to specifically thank Tony Forster, who first suggested this project and has done much of the on-ground logistics (getting support of Parks Victoria and linking us up with local organisations / suppliers); and Mick van de Vreede of Parks Victoria, who has help line a lot of stuff up to help this happen.

Please feel free to ask any questions by responding to list posts, or contact me directly.

Regards,

Adam

Love your work Adam. And thanks to Tony and Mick as well.

In terms of the pre-planting aerial survey, would you do that on the day itself if permission is granted?

Hi Ed (and all)

Thanks! I’m filling out a filming permission form for 14/15/16 August. 

Ideally flights will take place the day before, or early on the same day before people arrive (weather dependent); it won’t be practical to undertake mapping missions and comply with CASA regulations while people are planting / moving around on the site. The day after is there just in case weather isn’t kind… and we might want to capture trees at the start of their life as well. 

Just had a thought strike me - is anyone in academia listening who wants to start a project on yellow box woodland development? good opportunity here… ;)

Cheers,

Adam
