Floodlines moves north

By Administrator | 27 September 2012

Seventy people, including contributors to SLQ’s Flood and Cyclone Mosaic and the Local Disaster Management Group, attended the Mackay City Library launch of the Floodlines  travelling exhibition on Tuesday 11 September. As the exhibition tours through regional Queensland visitors can still upload their flood and cyclone photos from 2010/2011 to the Flood and Cyclone Mosaic.

 The exhibition coincided with a photographic exhibition at the library, 150 Years of Resilience: Mackay’s Natural Disasters.

To add value to Floodlines as it travels to Far North Queensland, Cardwell, Tully and Ingham, augmented reality maps of these areas were added to the Floodlines App in consultation with locals. The updated app now incorporates 3D virtual maps of these towns before and after Cyclone Yasi. Floodlines is at Mackay City Library until Saturday (29 September) before moving on to Gordon White Library from 3 October to 2 November.
