Spatial Vision was awarded two silver awards at the recent International Map Trade Association (IMTA) Awards in Bangkok.
Recently published, the Blue Mountains Outdoor Recreation Guides won a silver award in the highly competitive sheet map category.
These maps have only been on the market several months and are already regarded as one of the best guides for the Blue Mountains region.

Spatial Vision’s Blue Mountains Guides were the official map sponsors at the Blue Mountains Walking Festival this year and were described as an ‘excellent map solution’ and ‘providing excellent direction and public safety’ during the festival.  Having won the IMTA award this year reinforces the quality of the guides and we thank the International Map Community for the recognition.

Spatial Vision is also pleased to announce that we received a silver award for the One Place Many Stories website under the Internet website category. One Place Many Stories was developed by Spatial Vision in partnership with the History Council of Victoria and Public Record Office Victoria for the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

With things like Facebook and iPhones playing a big part in the everyday life of youth today, children are used to technology and respond to dynamic learning much better than traditional methods.

One Place Many Stories is an innovative web 2.0 learning application which appeals to today’s students and provides a relevant learning resource which is engaging and fun to use.

The website allows students to:

  • Explore their local history by selecting and bringing together different digital sources on a map
  • Overlay historic maps and plans onto current landscapes represented through Google maps
  • Interpret historical sources and tell stories, communicate and collaborate

Students can explore a number of topics and disciplines, and the website is a great example of how Web 2.0, mapping and media technologies can be integrated to deliver a novel way of educating Victorian children and communities.
