The dataset was compiled by the Bioregional Assessment Program from sources referenced within the dataset and/or metadata. A landscape classification approach was used to determine how hydrological changes due to shale, tight and deep coal gas development may affect ecosystems at a landscape scale in the Isa GBA region. Nine landscape classes have been identified for the Isa GBA region.


Geological and Bioregional Assessment Program


Inputs into the landscape classification were based on existing classification schemes wherever possible and can be purely physical, biological or predictive. Choice of approach depends on the availability of data at an appropriate scale, as well as the expertise and resources for undertaking the assessment. Landscape classifications should be credible, transparent, logical and consistently applied; where possible, match other classifications (or at least some of their classes); and be feasible within available resourcing. The landscape classification developed for the Isa GBA region is based on Queensland Land Zones (Wilson and Taylor, 2012), which were supplied by the Queensland Government (State of Queensland (Department of Environment and Science), 2018) and assigned to corresponding landscape classes.
