These are Agricultural Land Capability and Soil Drainage. The mapping was undertaken to assist planners protect agricultural land while allowing subdivision of land suitable for peri-urban living. The mapped area covers 486km2 and is predominantly 3.4km either side of the Katherine River near the Katherine township.
