Abstract

This paper reports progress on a multidisciplinary research project at Murdoch University, involving the principal disciplines of information systems, cartography and law. The research project is examining how information systems may be best utilised to support the negotiation and arbitration of native title (land) claims by indigenous Australians. It also addresses important methodological issues relating to the analysis, design and evaluation of information systems which accommodate users with different cultural backgrounds. It discusses the requirements of relevant spatial information systems and some of the design considerations for suitable maps and other visualisations. An initial analysis of the GIS needs of the National Native Title Tribunal is provided.
