Walking the landscape—catchment stories—Caboolture Catchment
To effectively manage a catchment it is important to have a collective understanding of how the catchment works. Catchment stories, using map journals, integrate spatial information, photographs and animations with an informative narrative to demonstrate the features of catchments.
This story describe the location, extent and values of the Caboolture Catchment. It demonstrates the key features which influence water flow, including geology, topography, rainfall and run-off, natural features, human modifications and land uses.
The information was compiled using the walking the landscape process, where experts systematically worked through a catchment in a facilitated workshop, to incorporate diverse knowledge on the landscape and to develop catchment stories. Others stories are under development, so watch this space!
