NSW Interim Native Vegetation Extent (2008-v2).

Various vegetation Extent and Nativeness products, that include: the delineation by woody and non-woody; and maps of the uncertainty associated with assignment of extent and nativeness. The primary product is a NSW Native Vegetation Extent layer prepared for the National Land and Water Resources Audit 2008. This represents native vegetation extent at 2006. A number of other useful intermediate products are also available. Full report is available from ; ; VEGETATION EXTENT was derived from interim Foliage Projected Cover (FPC) data (FPC 00,02,04,06) prepared by the DECC's Woody Vegetation Change Detection Program in early 2008. FPC is generated from Statewide Landcover And Trees Study (SLATS) methodology, developed in Queensland by Qld Dept of Natural Resources and recently applied in NSW. The SLATS program applies a series of algorithms on Landsat TM data to produce FPC values ranging from 0-100 percent. A threshold (or thresholds) are applied to the FPC data to separate woody from non-woody vegetation. NATIVENESS was derived from interim NSW Land-use Mapping data (Emery et. al), and then used to ascertain whether vegetation may be native or non-native.; ; CAVEAT:Vegetation extent and nativeness layers generated for this project are interim in nature and are subject to ongoing refinement. While these products represent the best available estimate of vegetation extent and nativeness at this time they will be improved overtime and hence are not suitable for accurate reporting of vegetation change
