SIX Viewer Mapping System: a better way to hunt
The Department of Lands — in consultation with Game Council NSW and Forests NSW — has developed a world-class mapping system for licensed hunters that incorporates topographic and satellite images, natural and man-made features, vegetation, settlements, forest boundaries and hunting areas.
This initiative offers licensed hunters the best quality and most up-to-date mapping information available anywhere in Australia. All you require is access to the internet, preferably broadband, your Restricted NSW Game Hunting Licence (R-Licence) and associated security PIN number.
These maps are to be used in conjunction with the Forests NSW maps already attached to your written permission. This new, highly-accurate and updated mapping system was developed after requests and consultations from hunting groups throughout NSW. It’s your mapping system, make the most of it!
PLEASE NOTE The supported browsers for the SIX Viewer are: IE 6x (including IE 7) and Firefox 1x (including the 2.0.3) The site is not supported for Mac browser users.
