Soil and Land Resources of the Liverpool Plains Catchment

This product contains natural resource mapping for the Liverpool Plains Catchment. This mapping was undertaken to enhance knowledge of soils, landscapes and physical constraints to land use in the urban and rural environment. The information informs decision-making and planning throughout the catchment.

Each soil landscape is an inventory of soil and landscape information with relatively uniform land management requirements, allowing major soil and landscape qualities and constraints to be identified. Soils are described using the Australian Soil Classification and the Great Soil Groups systems.

Related Datasets: The dataset area is also covered by the Soil landscape 1:000 000 mapping series for the mapsheets of Curlewis, Tamworth, Murrurundi and Blackville.

Online Maps: This and related datasets can be viewed using eSPADE (NSW’s soil spatial viewer), which contains a suite of soil and landscape information including soil profile data. Many of these datasets have hot-linked soil reports. An alternative viewer is the SEED Map; an ideal way to see what other natural resources datasets (e.g. vegetation) are available for this map area.
