Vegetation Map of Lismore Local Government Area, 2011. VIS_ID 4479

Fine-scale mapping of vegetation, including Endangered Ecological Communities (EECs) and Koala habitat across the Local Government Area (LGA). The mapping will fulfill a fundamental requirement for the development of a Biodiversity Management Strategy (BMS) by Lismore City Council.

The LGA was divided into three zones, designated by colour, reflecting differing levels of available background information, potential for landuse to conflict with biodiversity objectives and other threats. National Parks estate, including National Parks (NPs), Nature Reserves (NRs) and State Conservation Areas (SCAs) as well as State Forests (SFs) were outside the scope of the mapping project,

The latest available Land and Property Information high resolution digital photography (ADS40, September 2009) was utilised. Field work was undertaken between November 2010 and June 2011.

Vegetation was classified by API mainly on the basis of spatial patterns, texture and colour calibrated by field observations. Non-plantation vegetation polygons were assigned to vegetation units on the basis of canopy dominant species. Vegetation communities were placed in Keith formations and classes. Vegetation condition was also recorded.

Each vegetation polygon was assigned to a Koala habitat category based only on flora species present.

A list of EECs reported or considered likely to occur in the LGA were also derived.

A reliability code was allocated to each mapped polygon, according to the source of the data and/or the manner in which data was collected.
