Great Lakes LGA Vegetation 2003. VIS_ID 1287

Vegetation Mapping for parts of Great Lakes LGA undertaken by Kylie Marriot-Brown in 2003. The study area for this Vegetation Strategy generally consists of the eastern two-thirds of the Great Lakes LGA. Mapping has been completed for the entire 1:100,000 Bulahdelah Map Sheet. In the south, vegetation description and mapping has been undertaken in the area that extends east from the Pacific Highway, incorporating the Viney Creek, Hawks Nest and Tea Gardens area through to North Karuah. The mapping includes all private lands; council owned and managed lands and vacant crown lands. National Parks and State Forests have been excluded from this study.

Due to the shortcomings of this broad mapping dataset and it’s collation methodology the council no longer considers the layer to be a reliable indicator of vegetation communities within the LGA. However OEH has recently corrected the topology and coding of the dataset in the absense of more recent, finer vegetation mapping for the LGA area. There are no plans by the council to redo the mapping however they have mapped vegetation communities in the Hawks Nest/Tea Gardens area and in some locations surrounding Forster/Tuncurry via API. Attribute information for that data is only partially complete as the opportunities to undertake groundtruth works are rare. VIS_ID 1287
