Land Units of North East Bathurst Island

A preliminary land, water and biodiversity investigation in late 2013 identified several areas across the Tiwi Islands as potentially suitable for agricultural land. The area targeted for detailed survey was selected in collaboration with other Northern Territory Government departments and traditional owners. The resulting study area targeted an area of 14 000 ha on north east Bathurst Island. The associated technical report describes the bio-physical resources for the study area, including; geology, geomorphology, groundwater, surface water, land resources, flora, fauna and crop suitability. This polygon spatial dataset provides information on the land unit boundaries of North East Bathurst Island, Northern Territory, and describes dominant landform, soils and vegetation. The survey area is located approximately 125 km north west of Darwin. The field survey was undertaken in 2014 at a mapping scale of 1:25,000. Core attributes describing the land units, as defined by this department, were also compiled as part of this spatial dataset.
