Management Areas for the HGL of the Australian Capital Territory 2017 (Third Edition)

This dataset supersedes all earlier versions of 'Management Areas for the HGL of the Australian Capital Territory'. It incorporates HGL boundary and management area edits based on updated soil landscape mapping for the ACT.

The focus of this dataset is the Australian Capital Territory. The dataset defines individual management areas in defined Hydrogeological Landscapes (HGL), specifies landform elements and assigns a unique Landscape Code to be used when incorporating soil and land degradation management action information. The dataset provides the base for joining other landscape information to specific management areas when developing new spatial products for the ACT.

The management areas for the ACT were derived by:
(i) Dividing the ACT region into two regions – highlands and lowlands
(ii) Running LF7 with a 10 m DEM using these regions as a constraint
(iii) Combining the two outputs and intersecting with ACT HGL boundaries
(iv) Assigning a HGL management area to each of the LF7 classes in each HGL unit based on ACT HGL descriptions and field observation
(v) Converted to a feature class and dissolved
(vi) Extra information about each management area added to the feature class.

Spatial resolution for this product is 1:25 000.
