Innovative project highlights the Great Barrier Reef

March 02, 2012

Queensland boasts hot weather, amazing beaches and world-famous tourist attractions.
Citizens enjoy close proximity to these wonders that are often economically beneficial as well.

Whether you own residential real estate in the sunshine state or travel back and forth to manage rental properties, you likely have a stake in its environmental magnetism.

The rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef may be incredibly beautiful but they are also fragile ecosystems that require vigilant attention.

Now, it will soon be possible to bear witness to the condition of the reef via a technological initiative called eReefs.

Using pictures and maps, eReefs will extend the entire Reef from catchment to ocean to support communication and decision making for the Australian treasure.

Chair of the eReefs Project Board Dr John Schubert AO was confident in the project.

"It is not currently possible to visualise, model, understand and communicate the whole of the Reef system due to its vast scale and complexity. eReefs will be world leading, applicable in Australia and for coral reefs and coastal environments globally."
