Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems supplied by the NSW Office of Water on 13/05/2014

Abstract

This dataset was supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and is presented here as originally supplied. Metadata was not provided and has been compiled by the Bioregional Assessment Programme based on the known details at the time of acquisition.

The dataset is six shapefiles and a merged version of all six for vegetation types identified as GDEs (Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems) supplied by the NSW Office of Water on 13/05/2014.

Vegetation in NSW of high ecological value having high probability of being groundwater dependent were identified through a process that used current vegetation data, depth to groundwater data, data that showed potential frequency of water use other than surface water based on a continuous 10 year period and expert opinion.

This dataset has been provided to the BA Programme for use within the programme only. Third parties may request a copy of the data from DPI Water (previously known as the NSW Office of Water). http://www.water.nsw.gov.au/.

Dataset History

Vegetation in NSW of high ecological value having high probability of being groundwater dependent were identified through a process that used current vegetation data, depth to groundwater data, data that showed potential frequency of water use other than surface water based on a continuous 10 year period and expert opinion.

High Probability vegetation communities were identified as being of High Ecological Value when they sat within one or more selected datasets.

High Probability

  1. Vegetation: obtained from Environment and Heritage (OEH)

  2. Depth to groundwater: modelled data provided by Office of Water Hydrogeologists

  3. Potential frequency of water use other than surface water based on a continuous 10 year period : This data set was created by Office of Water using remote sensing MODIS

High Ecological Value

  1. National Parks and State Forests (OEH)

  2. SEPP 14 & 26 (Dept Planning)

  3. RAMSAR Wetlands (OEH)

  4. Marine parks and aquatic reserves (OEH)

  5. Identified rain forest communities (OEH)

  6. Threatened or endangered species (OEH)

  7. Wildlife corridors, Regional Conservation strategies or communities identified as being significant in various studies (Various Sources)
