  • 100m aspect grid derived from a resample of VICMAP_ELEVATION_DTM_20M. ArcInfo Workstation used to resample from 20m to 100m, then generate aspect from resultant DEM via GRID ASPECT(grid) command.

  • The land systems of Victoria spatial data layer (LSYS250) was re-attributed by DPI Bendigo based on McKenzie's Soil Atlas of Australia (CSIRO, 2003). Soil was classified on the Northcote scheme. This layer was converted to a grid format based on the VICMAP_ELEVATION_DTM_20M layer.

  • This layer has been derived from FIRE_HISTORY data and represents the spatial extent of the last fires recorded, primarily on public land. The layer stores details of the last time an area was known to be burnt by wildfire or prescribed burning and represents a consecutive overlay of all FIRE_HISTORY layers, from older fire seasons to the most recent fire seasons. The data will show fire scars but not severity. This data set is current to 2021/22 fire season.

  • 20m slope grid derived from VICMAP_ELEVATION_DTM_20M

  • 1:100,000 Landuse rasterised to 20m based on VICMAP_ELEVATION_DTM_20M. For more details see the Metadata for LANDUSE100.

  • Estimated long-term mean annual evaporation interpolated to a 20m grid cell using the DEM20 layer and the ANUCLIM software.

  • Thiessen polygons were generated for climate stations point locations for Victoria, and attributed with the station ID. Polygons were rasterised based on VICMAP_ELEVATION_DTM_20M. Site information was obtained from the Queensland Department Natural Resources SILO website (

  • Polygon layer contains DELWP Land and Fire District Boundaries used for Forest and Fire Management operations.

  • 1:100,000 Landuse rasterised to 20m based on VICMAP_ELEVATION_DTM_20M. For more details see the Metadata for LANDUSE100.

  • Fire severity classification of bushfires (wildfires) impacting ~1.5 million hectares of predominantly forested public land in eastern and north-eastern Victoria (and ~300,000 ha of southern NSW), between November 2019 and March 2020. Fire severity mapping was derived using machine learning classification (Random forests) of eight Spectral Indices (SI) from pre and post fire Sentinel 2 satellite imagery. The fire severity classification model was trained using high resolution (<35 cm) post-fire near-infrared aerial imagery from 12 bushfires which occurred during the 2018/2019 fire season across areas of Central and Eastern Victoria. A detailed description of the classification methodology can be found in Collins et al. (2018). The classification covers woody vegetation landcover types (including native and non-native forest, woodland and shrubland). The primary purpose of this data to provide rapid and comprehensive landscape-scale spatial information about bushfire severity to inform initial risk assessments on the public land in the actual and potential impact zone. This assists with the transition from response to emergency stabilisation and initial recovery in accordance with the Code of Practice for Bushfire Management on Public Land (2012). Fire severity classes are i) Canopy burnt (Class 6)- CB (> 20% canopy foliage consumed); ii) High canopy scorch (5) - HCS (>80% of canopy foliage is scorched); Medium canopy scorch (4) - MCS (Canopy is a mosaic of both unburnt and scorched foliage, 20 - 80%); iii) Low canopy scorch (3) - LCS (Canopy foliage is largely unaffected (<20% scorched), but the understorey has been burnt); iv) Unburnt (2) - UB (Canopy and understorey foliage are largely (>90%) unburnt). Additional classes: v) No Data (0) (e.g. due to obscuration by cloud, cloud-shadow and/or smoke and haze) and vi) Non-woody vegetation (unclassified) (1). An independent cross-validation of the classification model was used to estimate global and per-class model accuracy. Overall accuracy is estimated to be 85% (0.81 Kappa), with producer per-class accuracy ranging from 97% (CB), 91% (HCS), 88% (UB), 75% (LCS) and 61% (MCS). A ground-based validation of the classification has not been undertaken. Data is provided on the basis that users undertake responsibility for assessing the relevance and accuracy of its content.
