Location is inherently a core part of Australia's First Nation's culture and GIS technology is now assisting in the education of all Australians by providing additional insight and context to aboriginal heritage through maps. Andrew Dowding and Paul Farrell discuss the connection between GIS and aboriginal communities, the importance of digitally documenting indigenous knowledge through maps and their joint venture, Winyama.
