Description

Abstract:

Bedrock geology and a special regolith landform maps were created covering the Greenhills-Bago-Maragle State Forests in NSW. The two maps are a result of work carried out by AGSO near Batlow, NSW in an area encompassed by the Greenhills, Bago and Maragle State Forests. These forests contain both hardwood and softwood plantations. A helicopter borne magnetics and gamma radiometric survey was flown over the area in February 1996, and this data was used in the mapping of the area.

This project was undertaken in collaboration with State Forests of NSW (SFNSW) and CSIRO Divisions of Soils and Forestry. The mapping program was originally part of the National Environmental Geoscience Mapping Accord (NEGMA). With the increasing pressure to maintain and further develop forest productivity in Australia, geoscientific data is an important aid in forest management.

Lineage:

Data was interpreted by author onto 1:25 000 topo bases created from topographic data supplied by LIC.Initial acquisition was by high precision scanning. Resultant raster files were warped to fit digital graticules generated using Intergraph CAM software. Affine-1 warp was used, with four points selected to form tie points. Warped raster files were then vectorised and cleaned up using Abakos Provec and Scanfix software. Microstation vector data were plotted and visually checked prior to conversion to ESRI Arcinfo GIS format. No attribution was attached to the Microstation data. Microstation vector data were translated to Arcinfo coverage format using in-house scripts and ESRI's IGDSARC utility. Attribute fields were populated and coverages were built, checked and edited.
