View on Map

A 2013 update to the western parts of the Remnant Vegetation of the Cumberland Plain GIS data layers (VIS_IDs 2221, 2222 and 3785) using 2011 and 2012 imagery. Update focused on removing large areas of clearing at 1:10,000-1:15,000 scale. Those areas within the Sydney Metro CMA boundary, which were covered by the Sydney Metro Veg V2 2013 vegetaion map (VIS_ID 3817), were not updated. Update was conducted for use in the Biodiversity Investment Opportunities (BIO) Map, part of the Linking Landscapes through Local Action project funded by the Green Corridors Program.

Please note:

  • The previous update completed bythe Scientific Committee and Simpson 2008(VIS_ID 3785) was integrated into this update;

  • The update was conducted at approximately 1:10,000-1:15,000;

  • Txu (<10% canopy cover of urban land) vegetation (VIS_ID 2223) is excluded from the update and this layer;

  • Areas of significant regrowth were added;

  • New regrowth polygons, and polygons originally classified as 'unclassified' in VIS_ID 2221 and 2222, were allocated PCTs based on existing vegetation mapping available in the localities being assessed.
