Victorian Land Use Information System 2016

Elizabeth Morse-McNabb, Hayden Lewis, Kathryn Sheffield, Susan Robson, Jonathan Hopley & Rob Clark
The Victorian Land Use Information System (VLUIS) 2016 dataset has been created by the Spatial Sciences Group of the Agriculture Victoria Research Division in the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport, and Resources. It covers the entire landmass of Victoria and separately describes the land tenure, land use and land cover across the state at the cadastral parcel level. The methodology for creating the VLUIS is described in Morse-McNabb et al. (2015) with the following...

Land cover mapping of Victoria, 2016

Kathryn Sheffield, Elizabeth Morse-McNabb, Hayden Lewis, Susan Robson, Rob Clark & Jonathan Hopley
and cover mapping data is an annual component of the Victorian Land Use Information System, the VLUIS. The land cover information has been created specifically for the VLUIS using time series analysis of the MOD13Q1 or MYD13Q1 products produced by NASA using data collected by the MODIS sensor and freely available on the Reverb | ECHO website. Ground data is collected annually across Victoria using a stratified random sampling approach for calibration of the annual...

Land cover mapping of Victoria, 2015

Kathryn Sheffield, Elizabeth Morse-McNabb, Hayden Lewis, Susan Robson & Rob Clark
Land cover mapping data is an annual component of the Victorian Land Use Information System, the VLUIS (refer to separate record). The land cover information has been created specifically for the VLUIS using time series analysis of the MOD13Q1 product produced by NASA using data collected by the MODIS sensor and freely available on the Reverb | ECHO website. Ground data is collected annually across Victoria using a stratified random sampling approach for calibration of...

Victorian Land Use Information System 2014/15

Elizabeth Morse-McNabb, Kathryn Sheffield, Hayden Lewis, Susan Robson & Rob Clark
The Victorian Land Use Information System (VLUIS) dataset has been created by the Spatial Information Sciences Group of the Agriculture Research Division in the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport, and Resources. The method used to create VLUIS is significantly different to traditional methods used to create land use information and has been designed to create regular and consistent data over time. It covers the entire landmass of Victoria and separately describes the land tenure,...

Land units of the Wimmera region of Victoria

Nathan Robinson
A polygonal dataset of soil and land unit mapping for the Wimmera region of Victoria. The dataset was developed by the project "A Land Resource Assessment of the Wimmera Region" conducted by Robinson et al. (2006). This project was undertaken by DPI's PIRVic Division for the Wimmera Catchment Management Authority to provide consistent land resource information across the region. It utilised data from existing soil surveys at varying scales and intensity conducted over the previous...

Land systems of Victoria, Australia

David Rees, Jim Rowan, L Russell & S Ransom
Version 3 of the original state-wide land systems of Victoria provide a consistent method, nomenclature and description of land types across the State. The datset contains unique land system codes, soil and land descriptions and an assessment of susceptibility to various land degradational processes. The original Land Systems of Victoria, as described and delineated by Rowan in 1990, provided a statewide coverage of land types that are applicable to a wide range of land resource...

Primary Production Landscapes of Victoria

Richard MacEwan
The Primary Production Landscapes (PPLs) is a high level spatial framework that divides the state into 6 regions and 22 sub regions. Soil and landscape data, land use maps, the climatic record, and regional experience of agronomists and land managers have been used to define the PPLs. The PPLs have been characterised for dominant soil types and associated inherent management issues. PPLs were also described by major agricultural industries and practices that occur within them....

Coastal Acid Sulphate Soils of Victoria, Australia

Doug Crawford
Spatial data representing Victorian coastal lands which have the potential to contain coastal acid sulfate soil (CASS), i.e. it is prospective for CASS. This spatial data is used for triggering an investigation of a site where proposed activities risk disturbing CASS. Disturbing CASS is defined as causing oxygen to penetrate earth material that contains metal oxides either in sulfidic material or sulfuric material. Sulfidic material is soil or sediment that contains metal sulfides which oxidise...

Land unit mapping of the north east region of Victoria, Australia

Keith Reynard, David Rees, Grant Boyle & Martin Bluml
This dataset is the primary data output from the north-east land resource assessment project undertaken in 2001-02. It contains soil and land information at a scale of 1:100 000 for all freehold land in north-east Victoria. It also includes generic soil erosion risk assessments and Agricultural Capability. At the map scale of this dataset soil-landform units are not homogeneous. For each defined soil-landform unit, dominant soil types were identified prior to assessing their capability to...

Land units of the Gippsland region of Victoria, Australia

Ian Sargeant & Mark Imhof
A spatial dataset of soil and landform classification in Gippsland. The map units are broad `packages' of land - divided primarily on the basis of soil type, landform pattern and geology. The dataset has been derived from a combination of past studies and has been collated primarily by Ian Sargeant and Mark Imhof from 1994 to 2013. Data from older surveys have also been included in this consolidated dataset. Mapping in east and northern Gippsland...

Land units of the Glenelg Hopkins region of Victoria, Australia

Nathan Robinson & Nathalie Baxter
This soil and landform polygonal dataset was produced as a final output from the Glenelg Hopkins land assessment study. The purpose of this study was to guide further agricultural development across the Glenelg Hopkins region. This soil and landform information is at a scale of 1:100 000. The detail available in current datasets is good for this scale but is not sufficient to provide landscape analysis at finer scales and should not therefore be used...

Land unit mapping of Corangamite region of Victoria, Australia

Nathan Robinson & David Reesr
A polygonal dataset of land units and soil types in the Corangamite Catchment region of Victoria. The dataset was developed by the project "A Land Resource Assessment of the Corangamite Region" conducted by Robinson et al. (2003). This project was undertaken by the PIRVic Division within the Department of Primary Industries, for the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority. It utilised existing surveys such as Maher and Martin 1987 and Pitt 1981, remote sensing information and additional...

Geomorphological Map Units of Victoria

David Rees, Mark Imhof, Bernie Joyce, Neville Rosengren, Jim Rowan, John Martin, Ian Sargeant, John Nielson, Peter Dalhaus & Ken Rowe
This dataset provides a hierarchical framework of geomorphological spatial entities at three tiers (Tier 1 represents the coarsest scale, Tier 3 representing the finest scale). Over the last decade in Victoria, geomorphology has been used to create a hierarchical classification of landforms and landscapes, known as the Victorian Geomorphology Framework (VGF). The VGF is a spatial framework consisting of a hierarchical system of land unit descriptions. The framework hierarchy is a spatial system to assist...
