We ask applicants to identify the location of their project.

Please choose from Option A or B to create and provide the project boundary with your application.

If your activity is occurring in multiple locations please identify all relevant locations. If you have any questions, or if neither of these options work for you, please contact enviro.grants@delwp.vic.gov.au.

2021 Port Phillip Bay Fund

Each activity will be mapped and displayed on a new marine data platform, CoastKit, that DELWP has been developing.

There are two ways you can provide your activity's location for inclusion on CoastKit as outlined below.

2021 Aboriginal Community Caring for Country Grants - Stream 2

2021 Community Volunteer Action Grants - Stream 2

Successful projects will provide final project reports and their project activities will also be mapped and displayed on NatureKit, a biodiversity decision support tool developed by DELWP.

Option A - Shapefiles emailed in

If you already have polygon or point data shape files for your activity, please email them to enviro.grants@delwp.gov.vic.au in .shp format noting the activity name. Please include your application number or project title.

Option B - MapshareVic

If you don't have pre-existing shapefiles, please open MapshareVic and follow these instructions:

  1. Agree to the disclaimer
  2. Click the 'Drawing' tab on the top green bar
  3. Click the drop-down arrow next to 'Point' and select 'Polygon' to draw a custom shape on the map
  4. Zoom in to your desired location and click the boundaries of your project area to define the polygon shape
  5. Double click to finish the polygon
  6. If your project has multiple locations, please add additional polygons by repeating steps 4 and 5 as required
  7. Once finished click 'Export Drawings' on the 'Drawing' toolbar. This will download a zipped folder containing the shapefiles you have just created to your device
  8. Email the zipped folder as an attachment to enviro.grants@delwp.vic.gov.au including the project title in the subject line or contents.
