  • Last updated: October 2020 This dataset represents the spatial extent of prescribed burns planned for ignition and associated mechanical and vegetation works on Public Land in Victoria and some CFA burns. This data is prepared annually for prescribed burns planned for the immediate three-year period. This dataset is now the joint fuel management plan and now includes the CFA burns as well as VicForest coupe burns.

  • Vicmap Imagery represents a suite of statewide aerial photography and satellite image products. The satellite imagey datasets are statewide Landsat 7 products. Datasets in the series are listed below. See their metadata entries for more detailed metadata. 2001 SPOT Panchromatic/Monochromatic - Vicmap Imagery (Satellite) (SPOTP- 2001VI10); Satellite Image Colour Mosaic (30 metre pixel) - Vicmap Imagery (Satellite) (TM7-2000VI30); Satellite Image Colour Mosaic (300 metre pixel) - Vicmap Imagery (Satellite) (TM7-2000VI300); Satellite Images Individual Scenes (30 metre pixel) - Vicmap Imagery (Satellite) (LANDSAT7ETM+);

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

  • This dataset is created by sketching in the current burnt area from field data and linescan data. This data is updated every time the area of the fire is updated during an incident.The area is captured in the incident mapping system eMap.The final fire shape is then combined with the planned burn area data to create the FIRE_HISTORY dataset. This data includes both FFMVIC and CFA fires. . The layer will support fire prevention and suppression activities of DSE, and will be used to generate the FIRE100_{year} fire history datasets. This layer is the source of disturbance datasets used in the analysis of old-growth forest.

  • This layer shows Ecological Fire Groups (EFG) and Ecological Vegetation Divisions (EVDs) on Victorian public land, as defined in Cheal (2010). EFGs are groupings of EVCs for the purpose of fire management. They are similar to EVDs, except that they enable for finer scale classification of vegetation based on fire response characteristics. It is recommended that fire ecology analyses are carried out in terms of EFGs rather than EVDs. For a full understanding of the concepts on which this dataset is based, please see DSE Fire and adaptive management report no. 84, "Growth stages and tolerable fire intervals for Victoria's native vegetation data sets", David Cheal, 2010. The relevant terms are explained in more detail below. An EVC is a native vegetation classification unit that is described through a commonality of its floristic, life form, and ecological characteristics, and through an inferred fidelity to particular environmental attributes. There are approximately 600 EVCs statewide. An EVD is a native vegetation classification unit based on grouping multiple EVC units that share similar ecological responses and relationships (including fire responses). There are 32 EVDs as of 2010. An EFG is a native vegetation classification unit which provides for the recoding and updating of more specific fire response characteristics for EVDs. For example particular EVCs within an EVD grouping may be known to exhibit different fire response characteristics, such as minimum tolerable fire intervals (see below). There are 37 EFGs as of 2010. Tolerable fire intervals are the minimum and maximum recommended time intervals between fire events for a particular vegetation community. The time interval is derived from the vital attributes of plant and animal species that occupy the vegetation community. Maximum TFI describes the maximum time required between two successive fire events at a site in order that a vegetation community or its constituent species can persist in the absence of fire. Expressed in years. A minimum TFI may be assigned for both low severity fire and high severity fire. Minimum low severity TFI describes the minimum time required between two successive fire events at a site, the first of which is a low-severity fire with a high proportion of unburnt landscape scattered within the fire perimeter, in order that a vegetation community or its constituent species can persist and have every reasonable chance of reaching maturity and setting seed. Minimum high severity TFI describes the minimum time interval required between two successive fire events at a site, the first of which is a high-severity fire, in order that a vegetation community or its constituent species can persist and have every reasonable chance of reaching maturity and producing propagules before the following fire event. Expressed in years. The dataset was compiled November 2010.

  • As part of Melbourne's Strategic Assessment agreement under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, the Victorian Government has committed to establishing the WGR by way of acquisition of land for transfer to the Crown. A public aquistion overlay was applied to approximately 15,000 hectares of land under the Wyndham, Melton, Greater Geelong and Morrabool planning schemes in August 2010 (Planning Scheme Amendment VC68).

  • This dataset maps the geomorphic habitat environments (facies) for 54 Victorian coastal waterways. The classification system contains 11 easily identifiable and representative environments: Barrier/back-barrier, Central Basin, Channel, Coral, Flood- and Ebb-tide Delta, Fluvial (bay-head) Delta, Intertidal Flats, Mangrove, Rocky Reef, Saltmarsh/Saltflat, Tidal Sand Banks (and Unassigned). These types represent habitats found across all coastal systems in Australia. Most of the 54 coastal waterways have a "Modified" environmental condition (as opposed to "Near Pristine"), according to the National Land and Water Resources Audit definition.
