INTERPRETING HISTORICAL MAPS

Bess Moylan is a geographical information systems professional. She has worked on many projects including the Wollongong flood database and the Angkor Wat project at the University of Sydney. The Angkor Project used sophisticated geo-spatial techniques to map the extensive ruins at Siem Reap in Cambodia. She currently teaches mapping at Illawarra TAFE. Bess has been involved in training students in an Aboriginal – Site Works program which qualifies them to inspect, document and maintain Aboriginal cultural and heritage sites. Bess is interested in the use of local maps to interpret past land use, ownership as well as changes to natural features such as water courses.
