Mangrove Community Mapping: Charles Point to Gunn Point, 2016

This polygon spatial dataset provides new information on mangrove communities in Darwin Harbour, Shoal Bay and Charles Point. The survey area covers approximately 32,000 hectares of mangrove and salt flats. The purpose of the project was to update the original mapping undertaken in 1996 at a finer scale of 1:8,000 and extends from Bynoe Harbour to Adelaide River. This project was funded by the INPEX-led Ichthys LNG Project as part of the Darwin Harbour Integrated Marine Monitoring and Research Program (IMMRP). This mapping now forms the base line for on-going mangrove monitoring in the IMMRP region
