Dataset: Hunter GDEs v02



The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme. This dataset was derived from multiple datasets. You can find a link to the parent datasets in the Lineage Field in this metadata statement. The History Field in this metadata statement describes how this dataset was derived.

This dataset contains a modified version of the source Hunter CMA GDE dataset. Modifications include the addition of fields containing polygon areas. Also includes further derived datasets used to facilitate mapping. Including a version dissolved on the Keith Form field of the source dataset, a version clipped to the Hunter subregion boundary and one combined with the input Greater Hunter Vegetation Mapping dataset.

Dataset History

The polygons from the source GDE dataset were dissolved on the Keith Form field (HunterGDEs_KeithForm.shp). This was then clipped to the Hunter subregion boundary with an AREA field added and areas computed on the Albers projection (HunterGDEs_KeithForm_clipped.shp) . Also Keith Form Classes from the Greater Hunter Vegetation Mapping input dataset (see lineage) were UNIONed to produce a combined GDE and Non-GDE vegetation covereage (HunterGDEs_KeithForm_plusGHM_KeithForm.shp). Some summary area stats were also generated and included as a table (HUN_GDE_KF_Areas.csv)
