NSW Bionet Vegetation Map Data Collection

The BioNet Vegetation Map Data Collection is a catalogue of all available NSW vegetation type maps including Standardised products from the State vegetation Type Mapping Program, and non-standardised historic and contemporary maps. Each map stored in the catalogue is assigned a unique VIS (Vegetation Information System) identification number. This map catalogue contains:

  1. geographical information system (GIS) data;
  2. metadata, including technical reports;
  3. images of cartographic map products; and
  4. web map services, where available.

For more information see There are over 680 native vegetation type maps available.

All vegetation maps in this collection are available as individual data records in the SEED environmental data portal. For GIS data downloads for these individual vegetation maps go to the individual record in SEED. A combined map footprint layer can be downloaded here as a resource from this metadata record to assist GIS users in selecting maps. This footprint layer will eventually be removed once all individual vegetation maps in SEED have individual web map services created allowing them to be viewed in the SEED map viewer.

The data collection includes State Vegetation Type Maps produced by the State Vegetation Type Mapping Program. For more detail on the Program see . You can search for maps produced under this Program by entering the search term "SVTM" in to the SEED search window.
