Peel-Harvey Decision Support System Biodiversity Toolbox
The PHCC, in partnership in with the Department of Land Administration, has developed an on-line GIS system that will allow NRM professionals and the community to access relevant spatial data for the Peel-Harvey Catchment including the vegetation trend analysis work developed by Dr Peter Hick through the Peel-Harvey Biodiversity Project.
Funding for the for the original biodiversity project that has progressed to develop this Toolbox was provided by the Natural Heritage Trust (NHT), a joint initiative of the State and Australian Governments and administered by the South West Catchments Council. The development of the DSS Toolbox would not have been possible without the significant efforts of Adrian Allen and his team at the Department of Land Administration; all credit and much appreciation is given for their work and that of Dr Peter Hick from the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council.
The online GIS database contains numerous data layers for the Peel-Harvey Catchment including:
Landsat Satellite and Aerial photography imagery,
SPOT satellite imagery,
Salinity and High Water Table Potential data, and
Digital Elevation Models,
Roads, cadastre and town locations,
Vegetation Trend, cover and change data.
