‘Locate’ WA food destinations while watching cooking program
Viewers of NITV’s new food program ‘On Country Kitchen’, produced by WA based Mago Films, will see delicious dishes as well as aerial imagery of Western Australia provided by Landgate.
On Country Kitchen premieres on Wednesday 24 May at 7.30pm. It features Noongar comic Derek Nannup and chef Mark Olive who tour the South-West turning local fresh produce into mouth-watering meals.
Landgate Chief Executive Jodi Cant said the producers of the program approached Landgate for maps of some of the locations on show during the series including Augusta, Yallingup and Bridgetown.
“The producers wanted to give viewers an understanding about where destinations featured in the series were located in Western Australia,” Ms Cant said.
“We thought the perfect way to do this was to provide aerial imagery from Locate, part of Western Australia’s Shared Location Information Platform which is powered by Landgate.
“The show’s producers adapted our imagery to creatively introduce each food location.
“It was a perfect example of how Locate can be used in different and interesting ways.
“Landgate is always looking for creative, innovative ways of using the data we have.
“We are keen to collaborate with businesses which think outside the square.
“We were especially excited that we were able to contribute to On Country Kitchen as it’s a great program that showcases Indigenous culture, amazing food and beautiful scenery from the South-West of the state.
“I’d encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about the destinations featured in the show or any other areas of Western Australia to visit Locate to explore the location information available.”
