  • This layer contains line features which represent depth contours (bathymetry) in Mallacoota Inlet.

  • Dataset containing an indication of the geographic extent covered by each current Coastal Action Plan identified in 'Table 2: Coastal Action Plan Status', of the Victorian Coastal Council’s 2010-11 Annual Report. The dataset contains attributes identifying the report title, year of the report, Coastal Board region, unique identifier assigned to report, link that allows the report to be directly referenced, and link to source website page used to locate and obtain document. To support the capture of a suitable geographic extent covered by Coastal Plans each plan was reviewed and categorised in terms of the area it covered. For plans covering a local government area, Catchment Management Authority, Coastal Management Board area, or township, a nominal buffer was applied around the spatial extent of these administrative units. For reports containing a clear study area, this boundary was captured and used to depict the geographical area covered by the report.

  • SEAGRASS_WESTERN_PORT_1999 is a polygon layer defining the spatial extent, species distribution and density of seagrass and macroalgae in Western Port mapped from aerial photography in 1999.

  • Scientific review and dataset on developing a criteria for identifying key fish habitat locations and focussed on major Victorian bays and inlets (Port Philip Bay, Western Port, Corner Inlet and Gippsland Lakes). The recreational marine fish species habitat in the dataset are King george whiting, snapper, sand flathead, calamari, black bream and gummy shark. Commissioned by the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) and later digitised by DELWP, the consultancy report was produced by the University of Melbourne. Kalu. Commissioned by VFA. developing criteria for identifying key fish habitat locations

  • 20m resolution bathymetry and 5m contour intervals derived from 20m resolution bathymetry for nearshore Victorian Coast, LiDAR-derived bathymetry plus small area of multibeam-derived bathymetry on Westernport Bay. This dataset covers the Victorian coast, generally extending to the 20m depth contour. This dataset is based on information acquired between November 2008 and April 2009 to support the Victorian Governments Future Coasts Project.

  • Dataset containing boating area precincts identified by Victorian Regional Coastal Boards in their latest Boating Coastal Action Plans. The precincts are represented as a line based on VMSH_Framework.

  • This layer provides the boundaries of significant marine environmental assets which have been identified on the basis of their environmental value (at statewide, bioregional or local significance scale) for marine biodiversity and/or marine ecological processes. Victoria's marine protected areas, including the Marine National Parks and Marine Sanctuaries, are not included in this leayer unless they fall within the boundaries of larger identified asset areas. Separate expert workshops were held to identify these marine environmental assets in each of the following marine regions: Port Phillip Bay, Western Port, Western Victoria and Gippsland. The relative environmental significance of each asset identified was also rated by experts using the following categories: statewide, bioregional or local. Within each category, assets whose value relates primarily to use by birds that are not exclusively marine were rated separately to those whose value relates to exclusively marine species or ecological processes. These significance ratings were assessed separately for each region but the comparability of asset ratings across regions was then reviewed. This supersedes the earlier ASSET_MARINE layer. Blue Whale feeding/ Bonney upweling and Blue Whale Distribution asset areas were also identified through the above process, but have not been included in the layer because they encompass the majority of Victorian waters.

  • Victorian state-wide dataset containing facilities at all ocean beaches, in addition to assessing the nature and level of physical beach hazards at each beach, and thereby the level of public risk and safety. Facilities are indicated as present (true= T) or absent (false= F) and include bbq, picnic areas, phone, shops, showers, swimming pool, toilets and water. Beach safety is indicated by a hazard rating score (0-10) based on the physical characteristics of the beach that could impact on public swimming safety. The beach name is also denoted. The data outputs were identified in the Australian Beach Safety and Management Program (ABSAMP) undertaken jointly by Surf Life Saving Australia (SLCA) and the Coastal Studies Unit (CSU) of the University of Sydney in late 1999.

  • This layer contains polygon features which represent subtidal relief. Isobaths are linear features which are lines of equal depth that form the boundaries of the polygons.

  • Dataset containing an indication of the geographic extent covered by other Coastal Plans (non-CAPS) identified in 'Section 8.1 Other Coastal Plans', of the Victorian Coastal Council’s 2010-11 Annual Report. The dataset contains attributes identifying the report title, year of the report, Coastal Board region, unique identifier assigned to report, link that allows the report to be directly referenced, and link to source website page used to locate and obtain document. To support the capture of a suitable geographic extent covered by Coastal Plans each plan was reviewed and categorised in terms of the area it covered. For plans covering a local government area, Catchment Management Authority, Coastal Management Board area, or township, a nominal buffer was applied around the spatial extent of these administrative units.
