Native Vegetation - Modelled Extent 2005

Modelled dataset of Native Vegetation and major water-based habitats, created by the Arthur Rylah Institute, and completed July 15th , 2007

NV2005_EXTENT has been created from time-series(between 1989-2005) Landsat Imagery, many thousands of ground-truthing points, other relevant spatial data and expert validation. The dataset is a good interpretation of native vegetation extent (including aquatic habitat), but must be used with care, given it's modelled nature.

The dataset categorises the landscape into eight categories ranging from 'highly likely native vegetation' through to 'unlikely to support native vegetation'.

Geospatial Accuracy This dataset is a modelled view of native vegetation derived from analysis of satellite imagery & a variety of satellite & other data. As such, there is a high level of confidence in the native tree cover categories, and slightly less confidence in the native grassland / pasture cover classes. Confidence in attribute accuracy is expressed using the adverbs - 'unlikely', 'possibly' and 'highly likely', where 'Possibly native vegetation' indicates less confidence than 'Highly likely native vegetation'. Also, refer to data derivation process. Highly accurate
