Location of Example: 152°06'32" East, 24°47'52" South
Distinctive Characteristics:

  • Aquaculture Areas can be differentiated from Settling Ponds due to their proximity to other features such as town rural water supply, whereas Settling Ponds are rarely found near Town Rural Storage Reservoirs.
  • Aquaculture Areas are easily identified on imagery due to their rectangular or geometric shapes.
Regional Considerations:
