Abstract

Landmark Ecological Services Pty Ltd (Landmark) was engaged by the Nature Conservation Council (NCC) to conduct fine-scale mapping of vegetation, at Boorabee and The Willows, an Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) on the Severn River in the Northern Tablelands. Initial air photo interpretation (API) had previously been undertaken by the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) for Willows-Boorabee, including identification of recommended ground truthing points. The OEH mapping provided a base-map with lineworkbased on obvious patterns in vegetation detected during API. NCC then contracted Landmark to undertake the ground-truthing, further air interpretation and final production of the maps for this project.

Boorabee and The Willows IPA is approximately 2752 ha in area and is located approximately 45km north-west of Glen Innes and 12 kilometres from Emmaville on the Northern Tablelands of NSW. Willows and Boorabee are divided by the Severn River with Boorabee to the west. The soils are mainly derived from Emmaville Volcanics with a smaller area to the east of Willows derived from Webbs Consols Leucogranite. The properties range in elevation from 700m to 840 m ASL.

Lineage

API was undertaken using images of 2009 air photography in conjunction with an online rovider of high resolution imagery, Nearmap. API was undertaken to further refine the EH outlines and to assign a vegetation type to each polygon. Ground-truthing was undertaken between September and November 2014 to inform and confirm (or modify) the mapped vegetation types, to document their structure and floristics in more detail, and to illustrate the range of variation within and between the polygons. Prior to API ground-truthing was carried out at 83 separate locations using OEH recommended points as a guide. This information was used to inform the API. Further ground-truthing was carried out during and after the API process. Field checking was carried out by traverse, ie. the vegetation was inspected by way of meandering transects within the polygon, or by remote inspection from roadsides or other vantage points, often using binoculars. Where inspection by traverse was undertaken, details of vegetation structure and floristics were recorded, including dominant species in each stratum.
