Blackville API 1:100K vegetation map. VIS_ID 3849

Data forms part of a project undertaken for the Resource and Conservation Assessment Council as part of the regional assessments of western New South Wales - Joint Vegetation Mapping Project (JVMP), Brigalow Belt South Bioregion (BBS). Blackville 1:100K mapsheet was part of the "targeted API" program, whereby information on the structural characteristics and overstorey composition was obtained via aerial photo interpretation (API) of 1:50000 or 1:25000 aerial photography.; ; Joint Vegetation Mapping Project.

Purpose Targeted aerial photography interpretation (API) was carried out within the BBS bioregion.;Targeted API was essential to the project as it provided overstorey pattern information which;could be used to constrain the vegetation model.Full API coverage of the BBS bioregion could not be achieved due to budget and time;constraints. The JVMP TWG decided to undertake targeted API complementary to the NVMP;API. The NPWS WRA Unit Dubbo, supervised this work.;;An audit of existing API datasets and other ongoing API showed gaps in the coverage of API;across the bioregion. ;scheduled NVMP and;;Aerial photography was sourced from the relevant agencies or from Land Information Centre.;Photographs were 1:50 000 scale or 1:25 000 scale and dated 2000/2001.;;The development of the API mapping pathway was based on the specific requirements of the;project brief, namely: to provide full floristic and structural data that met the NVMP;Guidelines for mapping native vegetation.;The API pathway included vegetation cover with more than 10% canopy cover.;The mapping pathway for targeted API within the BBS bioregion was based firstly on;vegetation cover, then overstorey floristic, juvenile canopy cover (growth stage), understorey;type, canopy height, disturbance and land use. Thresholds applied to canopy cover (10% ccp);and minimum polygon size (10ha), with exception for special features (2ha).;A number of map sheets were already planned for completion under the NVMP API program.;After considering the requirements for additional API within the BBS bioregion, the JVMP;TWG decided to target the Cobbora, Gulgong, Merriwa, Blackville and Murrurundi 1:100 000;map sheets in the south of the BBS bioregion and the Bingara, Yetman and Yallaroi map;sheets in the north.
