  • I working on updating the GEO-spatial information for the Rabaul District beginning with Rabaul District, East New Britain Province in the country of Papua New Guinea. The data will be the basis for planning and decision-making for the agriculture development division with the administration. My work will include identifying agriculture, cash crops, settlement areas on land.

    The project will later move to the other 4 districts of the province.

    East New Britain is located on the Island of New Britain north of New Gunea. Our main centre is Rabaul Town.
