Vicmap Vegetation contains topologically structured digital datasets (tree density and plantations) depicting areas of tree or woody cover across the State of Victoria.

Vicmap Vegetation assists users in emergency, environmental management and map production. Customers include utilities, environmental managers, local government, cartographers and emergency services organisations.

Vicmap Vegetation consists of a forest density layer that shows the presence of woody vegetation, and has been divided into three distinct classes. The density classes show the spatial separation of woody vegetation of dense, medium and scattered.

The layer is a seamless and topologically structured data set.

Features include:

  • Vegetation density
  • Vegetation boundaries
