The Projections Explorer Tool is intended for use with: - A desktop or laptop computer with internet access - Any modern browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Opera etc) It has been tested on tablet and the tool works in landscape mode. On mobile phones the tool is difficult to navigate, and some functionality is lost.


NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment wants to make its information and services available to as many people as possible, including those using assistive technology.

The highly visual nature of the Projections Explorer makes it unsuitable to conforming with WCAG 2.0 Level AA, the mechanism used by standard web pages to achieve accessibility.
