Pukekura Park - living science

A wealth of information about New Plymouth’s Pukekura Park’s flora, fauna, history and recreational activities in exists within the local community. Using Geographic Information System (GIS) technology, the MAIN Trust (Mapping, Analysis and Information Trust NZ) together with The Friends of Pukekura Park will engage community and schools to gather local knowledge and make it publically available on personal mobile devices using the latest technology.

Collecting data and information once for use in many ways, Pukekura Park’s ‘Living Science’ initiative will see rich sources of data and content supporting recreational activity and scientific enquiry in the Park. The project will enrich people’s experience of Pukekura Park as it interactively ‘comes to life’ for Park visitors, schools and budding conservationists.
