HUN Landscape Classification v01


The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from multiple source datasets. The source datasets are identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement. The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.

This dataset contains polygon and line shapefiles representing the Hunter terrestrial and riverine Landscape Classes respectively.

Dataset History

The terrestrial Landscape class polygons are sourced directly from the two input polygon source datasets and clipped to the HUnter PAE (which is the same as the subregion boundary).

GDE landscape classes derive directly from the source NSW OoW GDE layer's 'Keith Form' attribute, though the "Riverine Forests" 'Keith form' are combined with the "Forested Wetlands" LC and the "Mangrove Swamps" and "Saltmarshes" 'Keith Forms' are from this source are not used . Rather, "Saline Wetlands" and "Seagrass" LCs are sourced from the Marcophytes input source data.

The remaining non-GDE terrestrial LC polygons are mainly sourced from the ACLUM catchment landuse from the PRIMARY V7 classification, and retain the source class names except that "1 Conservation and natural environments" is renamed the "non-GDE Native Vegtation" LC. A further exception is the "Plantation and Production Forestry" LC. This is derived from the SECONDARY_V7 classification where:

"SecondV7" = '2.2 Production forestry' OR "SecondV7" = '3.1 Plantation forestry' OR "SecondV7" = '4.1 Irrigated plantation forestry'

Respective LCs' source data are recorded in the attribute table.

The Riverine LC lines are derived directly from the Perreniality source dataset.
