Risks to the NSW Coastal Integrated Forestry Operations Approvals from changing fire regimes

Spatial data layers and analytical code used for the analyses and summaries presented by Bradstock et al. 2021. The base data layers comprise:

  • Raster data in GeoTIFF format (.tif file extension) for long-term fire history, 2019/20 fire occurrence and severity, logging history, native vegetation (SVTM forest formations), tenure, topography.

  • Raster layers for predicted habitat suitability of selected fauna species.

  • Vector data (mostly polygon features) for study area and tenure and forest management boundaries, together with fire history, logging history and vegetation layers used to derive the corresponding raster data layers used for analyses.

All code used for analyses is provided as Rmarkdown documents. Each document contains code in the R statistical language, together with explanatory text. Documents can be opened in the freely available RStudio software ( to run the code, or in any text editor to read code and text.

See file 00_README.txt for further description of files and folders.
