In the Great Artesian Basin there has been a program of capping bores and piping water to control points. Access to water can therefore be controlled for feral and native animals as well as farmed livestock. While National Livestock Identification Scheme (NLIS) tags are becoming common, the use of machine vision to identify animals based on their shape
allows control of water access for species not commonly tagged.
