Abstract

Effective techniques are required to determine region boundaries across NSW if certain political and economic reforms are to be realised. Web harvesting was used to source data from the internet about communitys' perception of place and regions derived from this technique were tested against community views sourced from surveys and focus groups. This research showed that Web harvesting provides an effective means of gathering community knowledge to develop region boundaries that are broadly accepted by the surrounding communities.
