Vegetation 2015 — Regional Ecosystems — Cover Codes

Regional Ecosystems (Cover Codes) in the Brisbane City Council area.

Regional ecosystems (RE's) are vegetation communities in a bioregion that are consistently associated with a particular combination of geology, landform and soil (Sattler and Williams 1999, Vegetation Management Act 1999).

Vegetation Cover- Brisbane supports a range of different vegetation cover. These being Remnant and Non-remnant vegetation. Remnant vegetation is further split into regional ecosystems, whilst non-remnant is split into eight.

  • Canal - man-made.

  • Disturbed - predominantly thinned vegetation that no longer meets criteria for remnant vegetation on the basis of canopy cover.

  • Exotic - vegetation dominated by exotic species.

  • Native plantation e.g. Eucalyptus spp., mixed native cabinet timber species.

  • Plantation - predominantly pine plantation (Pinus spp.) and hoop/bunya pine.

  • Regrowth - vegetation that has been cleared and has regrown but still does not meet the criteria for remnant vegetation.

  • Rehabilitation area - actively managed e.g. 2 Million Trees area.

  • Water - anthropogenic water bodies.

This dataset was derived from the Queensland Herbarium dataset Regional Ecosystems 2015.

This dataset utilises Brisbane City Council's Open Spatial Data website to provide additional features for viewing and downloading the data.

The first resource is in HTML format. The GO TO button will launch our Open Spatial Data website and this will let you preview the data and enable additional download options. The resources labelled GeoJSON, KML and SHP will give you a download of the entire dataset. The ESRI REST resource connects to metadata for the layer while the CSV resource will download attribute data in a table. For more information on the new features and other tips and tricks please read our Blog.
