Probable Vegetation Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems - Lachlan

The purpose of this project is to create a data set that identifies vegetation communities that have a probability of being a groundwater dependent ecosystem within NSW. Probability categories are high, medium, low and non GDE. The data is required to meet legislative requirements for water sharing plans and water resource plans. This is a base data layer that can be used to aid research projects, assessment of state significant development applications, licence applications and compliance issues. For ease of data modelling and management, the dataset was divided into the following catchment management areas; Border Rivers-Gwydir, Central Tablelands, Central West, Hawkesbury-Nepean, Hunter-Central Rivers, Lachlan, Lower Murray Darling, Murray, Murrumbidgee, Namoi, Northern Rivers, Southern Rivers, Southern Tablelands, Sydney Metro and Western Division.
