Ngunya Jargoon IPA Vegetation. VIS_ID 4693

Landmark Ecological Services Pty Ltd (Landmark) was engaged by the Nature Conservation Council (NCC) to conduct fine-scale mapping of vegetation, at Ngunya Jargoon, an Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) on the NSW far north coast. Initial air photo interpretation (API) had previously been undertaken by the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) for Ngunya Jargoon, including identification of recommended ground truthing points. The OEH mapping provided a base-map with linework based on obvious patterns in vegetation detected during API. The imagery used to map the communities included Land and Property Information high resolution digital photography (ADS40, Sept 2009) and Nearmap online high resolution aerial imagery. NCC then contracted Landmark to undertake the ground-truthing, further air interpretation and final production of the maps for this project. Ngunya Jargoon is approximately 850 ha in area and is located approximately 1km to the west of Wardell, a small village on the Richmond River in Ballina Shire. The landscape comprises a level to gently undulating sand plain with two small sandstone hills in the south-east of the IPA. The soils at Ngunya Jargoon are mapped as Warners Bay Coastal Sandplains with the exception of a small area to the south mapped as Birdsview Variant a Sedimentary High quartz and a small area mapped as Disturbed Terrain in the northwest.
