Vegetation Cover for metropolitan Melbourne 2014

This dataset has been produced to monitor the vegetation status of metro Melbourne region. The modified mesh block geography will assist users to perform spatial analysis to support policy and local decision making. There are many analytics within the data to provide information on the vegetation height, area and land use. A full list of data attributes are in the attached spreadsheet. An associated dataset on heat mapping, (heat vulnerability index) has been produced for the same time period. Search for heat mapping in Spatial Datamart or data.vic.gov.au.

Geospatial Coverage 140.501,-39.137,150.068,-33.0
Geospatial Scale N/A
Geospatial Accuracy Indicative photogrammetric results: accuracy in easting, northing and height = 0.3m, 0.3m, and 0.3m. Measures trees, shrubs and grasses. Omission errors include dead grasses, grasses occluded by trees, and possibly deciduous trees at the time of data capture. Indicative overall accuracy for vegetation cover is better than 90% as estimated from 3 regions repeated for 2 dates to provide 6 estimates. Range from regions 90-98%.
