In Australia, Aboriginal cultural heritage can turn up in the most unexpected of places. When it does, these artifacts can bring development and construction to a screeching halt. But one archaeological management company is using Trimble Catalyst to help ensure that a project moves forward in a way that maintains the integrity of these important sites.

An archaeological management consultancy company based in Western Victoria, Australia, Cooper Heritage Management specializes in Aboriginal cultural heritage. This includes preserving such tangible assets as scarred trees (a tree that has had its bark removed to make, for example, a canoe, shield, or dish), stone artifacts, and quarry and meeting sites, along with such intangibles as songs, dances and stories.

Because much its work takes place in the bush, the company is a big fan of Trimble Catalyst.
