Land use of Australia 2010-11

The Land use of Australia 2010-11 is the latest in a series of digital national land use maps at national scale. Agricultural land uses and their spatial distributions are based on the Australian Bureau of Statistics' 2010-11 agricultural census data. The spatial distribution of the agricultural land uses is modelled and was determined using Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) satellite imagery with training data to make agricultural land use allocations. The non-agricultural land uses are drawn from existing digital maps covering seven themes: topographic features, catchment scale land use, protected areas, World Heritage Areas, tenure, forest type and vegetation condition.
