Landcover Veg Mapping Greater Darwin Region

The spatial dataset was compiled at a scale of 1:100,000 and describes the major vegetation communities throughout both the Litchfield and Coomalie shires and extending into Cox Peninsula (ie Greater Darwin Region). The land cover mapping was derived from an early dry season image to show wetlands at their maximum extent and avoid recent fire-scars. The land cover mapping was also compared with a forest cover surface, existing vegetation and land unit maps of the same area and maps of the distribution of wetlands and rainforests. These comparisons provide further support as to the utility of a satellite derived land cover map that primarily reflects vegetation communities for a region in the monsoonal tropics of northern Australia.
