Aboriginal sites decision support tool

The Aboriginal Sites Decision Support Tool (ASDST) tool extends the Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System (AHIMS) by illustrating the potential distribution of site features recorded in AHIMS.

Aboriginal site features occur across the entire landscape; however, some parts of the landscape have a greater capacity to contain certain site features or features of different types.

The variation in site feature likelihood across the landscape is useful for planning assessments of potential site impacts.

Developed to support the assessment Aboriginal sites issues in NSW at the landscape-scale, the ASDST extends the Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System (AHIMS) by illustrating the potential distribution of site features recorded in the database.

The Environment, Energy and Science Division of Department of Planning Industry and Environment manages and supports the ASDST.

Documentation on the ASDST is available via the DPIE website. 

ASDST models are available via the Sharing and Enabling Environmental Data (SEED) Portal.  

SEED is the NSW Government’s central resource for Sharing and Enabling Environmental Data. It was developed for the NSW community in a collaborative effort between government agencies to provide an accessible and reliable platform for environmental data.
