Compilation map: Biometric vegetation types of the Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla and Bega Valley local government areas. Version 2.1. VIS_ID 3900

This project collated several vegetation maps (eg; SCIVI VIS_ID 2230) in consultation with end users to produce a composite Biometric vegetation type map for the Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla and Bega Valley local government areas. These vegetation types are used in the NSW Government's assessment tools such as the Property Vegetation Plan (PVP) Developer and the Biobanking vegetation types database.

The project study area is highly vegetated, and encompasses the Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla and Bega Valley LGAs, covering an area of 1,441,942 hectares. Additionally, the Jervis Bay portion of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is included.

This project classified 1,189,363 ha of native vegetation (80.5% of the project study area), including 132 Biometric vegetation types within 11 NSW Formations and 39 NSW Classes. Within these, a total of 22 EECs are represented.

Mapping was undertaken by Office of Environment and Heritage (Regional Operations Division) in close consultation with National Parks and Wildlife, Southern Rivers Catchment Management Authority, and Shoalhaven City Council , Bega Valley Shire Councils and Eurobodalla Shire Councils.

Version 2, with amendments based on field verification and external review.

Version 2.1 is a minor update. Deletion of one attribute field, Cleared_ , and addition of three attribute fields, PCTID, PCTName and PCTPercentCleared, to align with the Bionet Vegetation Map Data Standard, version 1.0 ( PCTID populated using Biometric Id / PCT Id relationship defined in the archived over-cleared vegetation types data sheet ( . PCTName populated from Bionet Vegetation Classification database ( PCTPercentCleared is populated from PCTPercentCleared in Bionet Vegetation Classification Web Service at 20.10.2018 ( .
