About NatureMapr

NatureMapr is an innovative cloud software platform that helps organisations collect, manage and analyse information from the natural world. NatureMapr is relied on by governments, local councils, biodiversity experts and environmental groups across Australia. You can read our story here.

Our Mission

NatureMapr is determined to help every important plant and animal species by ensuring their existence is known by the people charged in positions of power with their protection. Our sophisticated citizen science platform coupled with our partnerships with state and local government ensures everyday information makes its way to the right people where it can be viewed, analysed and then acted upon.

Current Projects

Canberra Nature Map

The Canberra Nature Map project allows you to report your rare plant and animal sightings as well as any of the many treasures in and around the ACT.

Our place is a bioregion of particular interest and worthy of detailed study.

The aim of the project is to identify as many of the living creatures of this region as possible over the next years.

Frogwatch ACT and Region
Frogwatch ACT and Region

Frogwatch is an integral part of the Ginninderra Catchment Group and focuses on two key priorities:

1. Organising and maintaining an annual community frog-monitoring program the Frogwatch Census, which engages large numbers of volunteers of all ages to undertake frog monitoring and protect frog habitats.

2. Delivering a range of school education products by providing information and resources for teachers and offering school visits to help students to learn all about the fascinating worls of frogs.

  • Defined points of interest and/or fluker post support
  • Automatic reverse geocoding and place creation
  • Bulk data import and export
  • Taxonomy management

  • Your own defined target species lists
  • Report individual sightings or bulk report surveys
  • Species sensitivity based security framework
  • User management and role based security
  • Your own defined custom additional fields
  • Content management
  • Community messaging, alerts and announcements
  • Subscribe to species, locations, members and species lists

What our customers say

Canberra Nature Map (CNM) has transformed the way that wildlife information is collected, reported and accessed across the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). In doing so it has significantly increased our understanding of wildlife distribution and abundance and has informed and changed daily land management practice. It is having a revolutionary impact in terms of our understanding and management actions. I strongly endorse the adoption of the programming tools and flexibility that has driven CNM to other regions, wildlife of interest or citizen science projects.

Dr Michael Mulvaney - Senior Conservation Officer, Environment and Planning Directorate, ACT Government

We'd like to give a big-shout out to our software developers NatureMapr, who have just received the 2015 ACT Landcare People’s Choice Award. Aaron Clausen and his team put in a massive effort to get our new streamlined and slick Koala Count website and app up and running. We've been blown away by their commitment and tireless efforts. We highly recommend NatureMapr as a platform for any other budding citizen science projects out there.

Dr Helen Smith - Koala Count Coordinator, National Parks Association of NSW
