  • This layer features the area cells used to record Catch and Effort data for the Port Phillip Bay commercial fisheries since April 1998. This layer is used by the Port Phillip Bay, Port Phillip Bay (Mussel Bait) and Port Phillip Bay (Purse Seine) fisheries. It is based on divisions of 5 minutes latitude by 5 minutes longitude.

  • This layer features the area cells used to record Catch and Effort data for the Corner Inlet commercial fishery since April 1998.

  • This layer features the area cells used to record Catch and Effort data for the Western Port commercial fishery since April 1998. This layer is based on divisions of 5 minutes latitude by 5 minutes longitude.

  • This layer contains polygon features delineating the Administraitve Regions of the former Victorian Plantations Corporation. Replaces VPCADM250 This dataset was reviewed and updated in April 2022

  • This layer features the area cells used to record Catch and Effort data for the Bass Strait commercial fisheries since April 1998. This layer is used by the Ocean - General, Ocean Purse Seine, Ocean Scallop and Trawl - Inshore fisheries, and is based on divisions of 10 minutes latitude by 10 minutes longitude.

  • This layer features the area cells used to record Catch and Effort data for the Gippsland Lakes commercial fisheries since April 1998. This layer is also used by the Gippsland Lakes and Gippsland Lakes (Mussel Dive) fisheries.

  • This layer features the area cells used to record Catch and Effort data for the Rock Lobster and Giant Crab commercial fisheries since the introduction of quotas in April 2001. The area cell boundaries are based generally on divisions of 10 minutes of longitude and latitude. The southern boundary of the cells is based on the Victorian jurisdiction as described in the OCS agreements (on the border shared by Tasmanian waters).

  • This dataset comprises soil property mapping across the whole State of Victoria at 6 prescribed depths. The set depths are 0 to 5 cm, 5 to 15 cm, 15 to 30 cm, 30 to 60 cm, 60 to 100 cm and 100 to 200 cm. The mapped soil properties are pH (1:5 water), EC (dS/m), % clay and soil organic carbon (SOC %). The dataset has been created by the Understanding Soil and Farming Systems project (CMI 102922)and is referred to as Version 1.0 of the Victorian Digital Soil Map (VIC DSM 1.0). Soil point data stored in the Victorian Soil Information System (VSIS) from over 6,000 sites has been standardised to the set depths (using equal area splines or a value weighting derived from the proportional contruibution of each sample to the depth class). This processed data was used to attribute soil land units from a collection of surveys (mapped at 1:100k or better) collated to provide the best map unit coverage across the State. Only data from sites that match the soil type of the dominant soil within the land unit being attributed were used. Sites and land units were assigned an Australian Soil Classification (to the Suborder level) to aid this process. The raw profile data stored in the VSIS (as of March 2013) used to produce these maps were: pH data were either laboratory based (1:5 soil/water suspension) or field pH (Raupach and Tucker 1959). Clay % was laboratory derived particle size data (PSA all methods), or converted field observations of texture class (McKenzie et al. 2000). Organic Carbon measurements methods was either Walkley and Black or Heanes wet oxidation. Electical Conductivity was 1:5 soil/water extract (dS/m). The data is available in polygonal format (i.e. the land units) with soil property median value, standard deviation and assignment qualifier attributes. ESRI grids in ascii format at 100 m cell resolution have been generated from the attributed land unit polygon dataset for each soil property at each depth interval. The assignment qualifiers have been created in order to provide a level of quality evaluation for the soil property assignment to each polygon. Reliability maps generated from these qualifiers have been produced together with each soil property map. The strength of these products is our ability to leverage on the significant investment in soil site and survey mapping data procurement and the capture of tacit knowledge of former soil surveyors. A revised version of these digital soil maps is due to be released at the end of 2014.

  • This layer delineates the extent of Forest Cover in Victoria in 1869 based on a historial map prepared by William Slight under the direction of R.Bough-Smyth FGS in 1866 and revised by A.Everett in 1869.

  • Land Carbon version 1 is a dataset describing the aboveground carbon estimate of Victoria’s publicly managed land estate in 2006. It was developed using a series of available corporate and other datasets on information such as relative age estimates. The point data comprises 64,000 points, leveraged off the SFRI data, with each point representing a 1km2 grid.
