Metropolitan Melbourne Heat Vulnerability Index 2014

This dataset has been produced to monitor areas of heat vulnerability of metro Melbourne region. The SA1 geography will assist users to perform spatial analysis to support policy and local decision making. Indicators of exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity were used for calculating overall heat vulnerability index. For details see `Interim report ? vegetation class and UHI.pdf?. The heat vulnerability index (HVI) is represented by a scale of 1 to 5 based on quintiles, with 1 representing low exposure, low sensitivity or high adaptive capacity and 5 representing high exposure, high sensitivity or low adaptive capacity. An associated dataset on vegetation mapping, has been produced for the same time period. Search for vegetation mapping in Spatial Datamart or data.vic.gov.au.

Geospatial Scale N/A
Geospatial Accuracy The Heat Vulnerability Index attribute is based on quintiles and therefore only 5 possible values exist. Multiple data sources are used to derive the indicators, and ABS data from 2016 has been used to assess heat vulnerability as of 2014. Due to attribute accuracy and timeframe misalignment of underlying datasets (e.g. the vegetation mapping) there is a possibility that a small number of SA1s have been assigned the incorrect quintile. To the extent these cases exist, the attribute accuracy should be +/- 1 quintile. Equivalent to the source ABS SA1 dataset Positional Accuracy.
