Experimental Environmental-Economic Accounts for NSW - Soil Accounts - 2021

This dataset is part of a large initiative being carried by the Centre for Advanced Environmental Economics (CAEE) to produce environmental-economic accounts under the UN-endorsed System of Environmental-Economic Accounting. SEEA accounts produced by the CAEE, and other economic valuation frameworks, are hosted in the Natural Capital Evidence Bank (NCEB) repository.

This data cube presents accounts for soils and land-use in New South Wales. These accounts form part of the CAEE Soils theme, which currently includes a Soil Extent physical account, a Soil Condition physical account, and a Land-use physical account. The purpose of developing these accounts is to better understand the degree to which different NSW Great Soil Groups are being used for activities which are compatible or incompatible with their physical capabilities.

The accounts have complete coverage for NSW. The sources for these accounts are:

Great Soil Group (GSG) Soil Type map of NSW, 2021, DPIE,

NSW Landuse v1.2, 2017, DPIE,

Land and Soil Capability Mapping for NSW, 2020, DPIE,
