Native Vegetation - Modelled Quality (Site condition and landscape context)

NV2005_QUAL is a modeled dataset of the quality of Terrestrial Native Vegetation quality as per the 'Habitat Hectares' approach (Parkes et al, 2003). Specifically it is a model of the 'Habitat Score' which is an index comprising ten (10) separate metrics that are weighted and summed. It is stored as a raster (ESRI grid/GeoTIFF). I have obtained and used this dataset for research purposes (RMIT/VNPA) via data.vsdl@delwp.vic.gov.au , however it would be helpful to have it publicly available. I understand there are issues around the datasets currency (2005) and accuracy (landscape scale). Perhaps it is time for an updated dataset be produced?
