You can download final versions of the maps below as pdf files. Refer to the list under the map.

Important note

  • These maps are not available as hard copy printed maps.
  • Additional Aerial Photograph Interpretation has increased the map coverage of the north-west sector of the study area.
  • Improved modelling has resulted in areas of previously unidentified vegetation being added (e.g. in the Scheyville area).
  • The maps have included non-Cumberland Plain communities, where these exist in the study area, to assist users identifying vegetation.
  • The display, on the maps, of vegetation of different condition has been altered to more accurately reflect the differences that the data can detect reliably.
  • The maps cannot be understood completely without the interpretation guidelines which you can download below.
  • OEH wishes these maps to be widely distributed and they may be printed by anyone who wishes, either partially or in their entirety. They may not, however, be on-sold.

Interpretation guidelines

The interpretation guidelines:

  • give more detail about the mapping project
  • include community descriptions and diagnostic species lists for the Cumberland Plain and non-Cumberland Plain communities, to assist users in identifying vegetation
  • explain different codes and categories that were used in the project.

The interpretation guidelines are essential for a complete understanding of the maps.
