Yarrangobilly Soil and Landscape Assessment

This National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) tailored mapping product is the major deliverable of the Yarrangobilly Soil and Land Assessment project, in which the Soil and Landscape Assessment Team of DPIE’s Science, Economics and Insights Division was engaged to carry out a soil landscape assessment of the Yarrangobilly section of Kosciuszko National Park. This project was the result of multiple discussions, in particular the Alpine Research Prioritisation, in which baseline soil information was identified as the number two research priority.

This product delivers a consistent and comprehensive layer of soil landscape information and maps of specific soil and land values, limitations and hazards, soil and landscape summary descriptions and related management advice to support effective park management and decision-making.

In addition this product will assist in establishing a soil baseline to measure and predict likely changes in the soil resource into the future.

Online Maps: This area is also covered by the mapping of Hydrogeological landscapes of NSW & ACT in eSPADE. eSPADE 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.
