Land Resources Daly Basin

This polygon spatial dataset, the Land Resources of the Daly Basin, is a compilation of several existing land resource surveys describing landform, soils and vegetation at a survey scale of 1:50,000. Refer to the land resource survey listing under Supplementary Information. The original land unit survey report was published by Aldrick and Robinson (1972) over the Katherine-Douglas Area. Land resource descriptions are sourced from the original report and adjacent surveys. New units found in the adjacent survey areas were appended to those already noted in the original report. Information is generally interpreted to indicate land capability for a range of land uses and provides a basis for identifying the extent and distribution of land resources. The total surveyed area of 18,390km2 is located over the Daly Basin bioregion. Fieldwork was undertaken between 1968 and 1984.
