Google Earth Map
Mapped Co-ordinates on this Site
This is a map related to the Satellite Dreaming project, featuring four different layers which correspond to the links to Google Maps which appear in most of the pages on the site: in 1) the 1991 Film Chapters, 2) People, 3) Essays, and 4) Sources.
In this way, the map shows the geographical spread of the content, locations and contributors to the site - from the remote desert areas to coastal cities and towns - with the aim of being as transparent as possible about which areas are included, and not covered, on the site. Alongside the links in the text on the pages, it is also designed to help those users of the site who are unfamiliar with the geography of Australia.
The map makes the obvious point that indigenous media activists have been working right across the continent over the last four decades, in both remote and coastal areas; and, by extension, that the First Nations are now and have been - for the last 60,000 years or more - living on these lands.
