Victorian Wetland Environments and Extent - up to 1994

Polygons showing the extent and types of wetlands in Victoria based on photography taken during the 1970's and 80's. Wetlands are classified into primary categories based on water regimes and subdivided into sub areas based on vegetation or hydologic attributes. The polygon boundaries were derived from digitizing marked up aerial photography interpretation.

Data Temporal Coverage: 1965-01-01 to 1994-01-01
Geospatial Coverage 141,-39,150,-34
Geospatial Scale 1:25 000
Geospatial Accuracy The classification scheme used is based on photo interpretation and ground surveys carried out by Departmental research staff under the direction of research scientist Andrew Corrick. Precision: 10m to 100m Determination: Deductive estimate. Ad-hoc comparisons with 1:25,000 layer data and various sorts of imagery indicated good correlation in terms of shape and size but with errors of the order indicated above in terms of position and/or rotation. When resources permit, the 1:25,000 library hydrology and roads layers should be used to identify layer inconsistencies which may indicate specific wetlands which require translation, rotation or boundary modifications.
