This table provides Tolerable Fire Interval (TFI) information for Ecological Fire Groups and Ecological Vegetation Divisions on public land
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.
This layer contains the line and polygon features depicting the Land Conservation Council Study Area boundaries according to the Statewide Assessment Report of 1989, with additional information showing historic studies. There are no boundaries for Special Investigations included in this dataset. An additional layer has been created showing later Environment Conservation Council Boundaries and the boundaries of some of the special investigations. Refer to ECC500
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.
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.
The fire severity classification is derived from a classification of a SPOT and Landsat TM woodlands fire severity index to map the fire severity of the February 2009 Victorian bush fires using ground control and air photograph analysis provided by DSE to Ecowise for validation. The classification is the final product derived using SPOT 4/5 satellite imagery with Landsat 5 imagery used on small areas where cloud or where SPOT imagery coverage was unavailable. Five of the eight classes have been labeled based on severity classes provided with the ground survey data. The remaining classes account for vegetation structures with no specific burn severity assigned. The area covered by the classification is approximately 460 by 300 km and is clipped to the extents of the fire effected lands (approximately 400 000 hectares).
Recreation historic relic dataset describes historic relics suitable for public visitation (such as timber tramways, old sawmill sites etc) that are promoted for visitation. The recreation historic relics within State Forest have been captured and recorded with a Trimble Pro XR GPS and are actively promoted to the public and maintained by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. * recweb
This dataset presents aggregated historic fire severity classification from 1998 onward for wildfires. It currently has all of the fire sev classification done from FIRE_SEV98 to FIRE_SEV09 as well as Grampians victoria valley complex 2013 and Grampians northern complex 2014 (additional years of severity mapping will be added to this dataset as they become available). Datasets has been reclassified using the Level 2 Classification described in the Post fire Burn Classification Procedure SOP v.1.0 (FEMD, 2014). Severities for fires after 2014 have been added as fire severity mapping occurs. There severities most often use Level 3 Classification. Aggregating the old (more detailed) historic severity classes into the current broad level 2 classes is a more conservative approach than aggregating them into the current level 3 classes. . The reason for this approach is that the percentages for the degree of crown scorch do not line-up closely enough to directly transfer the old classes into the new level 3 classes. In all of the classification work documented above, canopy burn remains the highest severity level, canopy scorch is divided up in the levels below this depending on a description or percentage range. In this coverage the most resent (last burnt) severity mapping is displayed, however, where an area has had previous fire events they can be mapped out (interrogated) by using definition query or attribute query or other GIS techniques. Severity classification of non-forest areas: In 2003 (Alpine fire), 2005 (Wilson's Promontory Fire), 2006 (Grampians Ballarat and Moondarra fires), 2007 (Little Desert and Boulder Creek fires) 2009 (Kilmore - Murindindi fires) polygons have been reclassified to the following classes: Burnt = High Severity Scorched and Burnt = High Severity Partially Burnt = Medium Severity Scorched and Unburnt = Low Severity Unburnt = Unburnt Unclassified = Unclassified
