Land units of North East Victoria

This dataset is the primary data output from the north-east land resource assessment project undertaken in 2001-02. It contains soil and land information at a scale of 1:100 000 for all freehold land in north-east Victoria. It also includes generic soil erosion risk assessments and agricultural capability.

At the map scale of this dataset soil-landform units are not homogeneous. For each defined soil-landform unit, dominant soil types were identified prior to assessing their capability to support various enterprises. Often a co-dominant and minor soil type have been described as part of this process.

Importantly it should be noted that soil attributes (for example texture, sodicity, pH) are expected to vary between acquired soil sites. As the variability of soil attributes within a map unit is difficult to predict, it is important to note that representative soils should be used as a guide only.

The study report describing the project methodology and dataset attributes is available from the Victorian Resources Online website (
