ABOUT IMW AUSTRALIA
The Indigenous Mapping Workshop was founded in 2014 by Steve DeRoy, with a vision to build a conference that gave Indigenous peoples direct access to the tools and training they need to map their lands. The first workshop was held on the traditional territory of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), Lkwungen (Songhees) and Wyomilth (Esquimalt) in Victoria, BC; in partnership with The Firelight Group, Union of BC Indian Chiefs, Google Earth Outreach, and Google Canada.
In 2018, Australia hosted its inaugural Indigenous Mapping Workshop with Andrew Dowding of Winyama as its Australian partner. The Indigenous Mapping Workshop Australia is now in its fourth year.
This year, 2023IMW will be held in Narrm (Melbourne, Australia). From the 30th of May 2023 to 2nd June 2023 the IMW Australia team and friends will teach attendees how to use the best digital and geospatial tools to collect, host, visualize, share and publish maps that can be used to demonstrate connection to land and waters and manage associated digital information.
