  • The Victorian Land Use Information System (VLUIS) dataset has been created by the Spatial Information Sciences Group of the Agriculture Victoria Research Division in the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA). Land use plays a critical role in global cycle of greenhouse gases. Accurate and current land use information is vitally important to properly account land-based emissions, and to develop effective mitigation strategies for climate targets. VLUIS datasets are available for access through, and have previously been published for 2006/07, 2008/09, 2010/11, 2012/13, 2014/15 and 2016/17. VLUIS has been revised to provide contemporary and spatially detailed information to support ‘Agriculture Climate Spatial Tool’ (ACST) under Victoria’s ‘Agriculture Sector Pledge’ towards emission reduction targets.

  • Polygon features representing the observed, derived or estimated inundation extent for floods that have occurred in Victoria. These are not linked to modelled flood data. Confirmed flood observations are derived from the automated and manual processing of data from the sources listed below. Note that while flood observations have manual oversight and corrections during the event, they are based on a point in time and may not necessarily represent the maximum flood extent. - Aerial photography - AIG observation - Air observation - Linescans - GPS - Ground Observer - Satellite imagery interpretations The derived flood extent is from automated and manual processing of satellite data. This data is usually used to fill in gaps outside of areas covered by confirmed flood observations. Note that this flood extent data was prepared by the SCC Mapping Team for operational use only. It may have missing or incomplete data that could lead to gaps in analysis or visualisations. The dataset does not capture the peak flood extent in all areas. The dataset does not capture the extent of flash flooding. Past and future layers may be added as the data becomes available. List of events included in Supplemental Information

  • Last updated: October 2021 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.

  • 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

  • Polygons defining the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Shorebird Sites in Victoria. The East Asian-Australasian Flyway extends from the Arctic Circle through Eastern and South East Asia to Australia and New Zealand and encompasses 22 countries. The East Asian-Australasian Shorebird Site Network was launched in 1996. It is now known as the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Site Network. Corner Inlet was listed as a shorebird site at the launch of the East Asian-Australasian Shorebird Site Network in 1996. In 2000, two other Victorian sites joined the network: Western Port, Port Phillip Bay (Western Shoreline) and Bellarine Peninsula. In 2006, Shallow Inlet Marine and Coastal Park and Discovery Bay Coastal Park were added. Adding these sites to the network provides recognition for Victoria's most important shorebird sites.

  • This layer identifies areas defined as sites of significance for rainforest initially delineated by David Cameron in 1990 as part of the statewide rainforest survey and subsequently reviewed by Bill Peel in 1999. This revised 2012 version is necessitated by changes in the integrity of selected sites or site values as a consequence of fire or harvesting history in the period 1990-2012 which warrants a re-evaluation of the boundary or priority zoning of such sites. Priority classification: 1 highest priority area through to 5 lower priority area. Additional fields to describe Priority, Significance, Site_ID were added on 27 Feb 2019.

  • Model-based predictions of average deer abundance on Victorian public land. Model predictions are based on camera-trap and deer sign surveys at 317 sites across Victoria conducted between 2021 and 2023. The raster data is divided into four layers/bands for the four species analysed in this study: Sambar deer (Cervus unicolor), Fallow deer (Dama dama), Red deer (Cervus elaphus) and Hog deer (Axis porcinus). Abundance estimates are provided as a numeric decimal of deer per square kilometre of public land within each grid cell. The technical report accompanying this data is available from the Arthur Rylah Institute (ARI) website: The raster data may be loaded into programs such as R or QGIS for analysis. When opening the data in QGIS, undertake the following steps: 1) Follow 'Layer > Add Later > Add Raster Layer' to select the tif file to be added 2) Right-click on the added layer in the 'Layers' panel and select 'Properties' 3) Visualise the abundance of one of the four species of deer by selecting 'Symbology > Band Rendering > Render Type = Singleband Pseudocolor' 4) Choose the band (species) you wish to display 5) Apply the changes

  • This layer is derived from the APIARY layer and defines the buffer zones around CLM Apiary sites in Victoria, based on whether the site is permanent or temporary. There is one zone for each apiary site.

  • This layer details the boundaries of the Salinity Management Plans. These boundaries define the administrative extent for each Salinity Management Plan Not all areas of the state are covered by Salinity Management Plans.

  • Last updated: October 2013 This dataset represents the spatial extent of prescribed burns planned for ignition on Public Land in Victoria. This data is prepared annually for prescribed burns planned for the immediate three-year period.
