HWS2018 Subcatchments with 2016 vegetation metrics for Riparian and Stream Bed

Data represents vegetation coverage within the riparian zone for waterways across Melbourne Water’s region. This layer was developed by GraceGIS as part of vegetation statistics extraction for each riparian zone and stream bed for each of the subcatchments. The data was developed as part of the Healthy Waterways Strategy 2018 (HWS2018). The primary purpose of this layer is for reporting and target setting. This includes setting and reporting on targets and performance objectives relating to vegetation coverage.Dataset was created using 1. Latest MW Drainage Network to prepare HWS stream network layer. 2. Seamless polygons were created for the stream bed: ISC 2010 streambed data and a 2 metre buffer from the network was used to develop a complete streambed layer across the Melbourne Water region. 3. Buffer polygons at 20 metres and 10 metres from the streambed representing riparian zone outside Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) area and within UGB respectively. 4. HWS Vegetation Streambed Riparian (2016) layer for these riparian and stream beds has been assembled. 5. Subc level stats are derived as detailed above.Attribute level metadata can be viewed hereNOTE: Whilst every effort has been taken in collecting, validating and providing the attached data, Melbourne Water Corporation makes no representations or guarantees as to the accuracy or completeness of this data.
