Land units of the Corangamite region of Victoria

This dataset is the primary data output from the Corangamite land resource assessment project undertaken in 2002-2003. It contains soil and land information at a scale of 1:100 000 for all land in the region. The study also includes land degradation assessments for each unit.

At the map scale of this dataset soil-landform units are not homogeneous. For each defined soil-landform unit, the number and proportion of landforms and soil types will vary. A group or groups of soils have been associated with each unit. representative sites and their associated profile properties are recorded in the study report.

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, including representative soil profile data, is available from the Victorian Resources Online website (
