    Hi Binxiao,

    Thanks for your question, and so great to see the thorough research you are doing!
    The weeds that we have identified came from the Dawul Wuru Rangers themselves who are currently engaged in weed removal processes as part of their role. As such, you can assume that there is knowledge within the organisation about weed types and how to manage them – this is not something that you need to provide to Dawul Wuru in your design. For the purposes of the project area, Dawul Wuru are interested in tools which can help make weed management more efficient, record and share their existing knowledge, store historical data and ultimately support their work in this space in an accessible format. As such, as a part of your design, you don’t need to provide detailed information about the weeds and how to manage them, as Dawul Wuru already holds this knowledge, but rather think about tools which can help share this knowledge and make their weed management more efficient. 

    I hope this helps, and if you haven’t already I recommend taking a look at our Big Tricky Questions document (found in our Resources section). As you go through your design process you will inevitably find that there are questions you have that you can’t find information for, this document will help guide you through that process.
