NSW State of the Catchments 2008: MER Native Vegetation Theme

Alternative title(s)

NSW SoC Native Vegetation (2008-v1)

Abstract

All four data layers were derived by integrating spatial data from other existing state-wide data sets and applying a series of transparent decision rules. The integration of existing state-wide data sets compiled from several programs delivers decision makers within NSW a powerful and comprehensive snapshot of the native vegetation resource condition with a state-wide context. Additional description of the data layers, the component data sets used to derive them, and the methods used to integrate these component data sets can be found in DECC (2009) Technical Background Report NSW State of the Catchments 2008:Native Vegetation. Unpublished.; ; CAVEATS: SoC report products are not available until the release of the 2009 State of the Environment Report. The data sets described herein have been derived from interim products prepared by the NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change and Water's Native Vegetation Extent and Land Use Mapping Programs. While these products represent the best available state-wide estimate of native vegetation extent and condition at present, they will continue to be improved over time. Caveats applying to the underlying data sets also apply to the State of the Catchment products.

Lineage

Dataset lineage for Vegetation Extent, Vegetation Condition and Pressures affecting native vegetation were derived by integrating spatial data from other existing state-wide data sets and applying a series of transparent decision rules. The component data sets used to derive them, and the methods used to integrate these component data sets can be found at DECC (2009) Technical Background Report NSW State of the Catchments 2008:Native Vegetation. Unpublished Report The state-wide vegetation extent layer was compiled from two primary sources:; ; NSW Extant Native Vegetation (Keith and Simpson 2006) - Version 002. (ANZLIC Metadata No. ANZNS0208000230); NSW Interim Native Vegetation Extent (2008-v1) (ANZLIC Metadata No: ANZNS0208000244), herein referred to as INVE; The state-wide vegetation condition and pressure layers were compiled from primary data sets:; ; Merged Land Use Layer produced as a secondary product INVE (ANZLIC Metadata No: ANZNS0208000244); NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Estate 2008 v1 (ANZLIC Metadata No: ANZNS0208000008); Forests NSW Estate (SF) 2008 and NSW Travelling Stock Reserves 2008.
