A new exhibit at the Wanneroo Regional Museum captures the history of mapping and surveying in the Wanneroo region and further afield. With an array of fascinating instruments on display that demonstrate the complexity and precision of the surveyor’s task, the exhibit also highlights the way that the surveyors of the past observed, measured and recorded the natural landscape.
