Soil and Land Capability Assessment Lower Weaber Keep River Plains – Section 1: Lower Weaber and Upper Keep

Department Survey Code (Land Units): WEA18_25

This spatial dataset provides polygon information delineating land unit boundaries mapped at a scale of 1:25 000 and describes the soils, vegetation and land capability of the Lower Weaber and Upper Keep Plains in the Northern Territory. The study area, Section 1, covers 67 km2 and is located in the north-west Ord-Victoria River region of the Northern Territory within the Spirit Hills pastoral lease.

The investigation has assessed land based constraints and determined land capability outcomes for potential future agricultural development. It incorporates both collated legacy data published in Aldrick and Moody (1977) and new analytical soil data collected in 2018, in combination with analysis of high resolution aerial imagery to generate reliable land capability outcomes.
