East Coast Community Mapping

Thank you for your interest in this survey.

The East Coast of Tasmania is a special place to live and work and we want to help protect what makes it special, including its extraordinary coastal, marine and terrestrial places.

Through this online survey we seek to map the places of significance in the East Coast, understand why these places are important to those that live and work here, and learn what it would mean if these places are lost. This information will be crucial to developing plans that can help protect the values and characteristics that make these places special or important to us.

This survey asks a few questions about you and your preferences and asks you to identify places that you value and places that you think are changing or being lost. To map places, you will need to ‘drop pins’ onto a map, as you would when using online maps like google maps, based on a range of values. We have provided instructions on how to do this, including an instructional video. These can be accessed by clicking on ‘Help’ when you get to the mapping section of the survey.

The survey will take about 60 minutes to complete. We understand your time is valuable and to thank you for your time and contribution we will send you a digital gift voucher for $10 for completing the survey. This voucher is flexible and can be used in a wide range of stores online and in store!

At present, this study is limited to those living (including holiday-home or shack owners) and / or working in the Break O’ Day and Glamorgan-Spring Bay areas on the east coast of Tasmania. You must be 18 years or older to participate.
