Title

NSW Koala Tree Indices v1.0

Abstract

The purpose of this layer is to measure the probability of finding a tree species that a koala is known to use for food or shelter.

The statewide Koala Habitat Information Base (KHIB) has been developed as part of the NSW Koala Strategy. It delivers the best available state-wide spatial data on koala habitat, likelihood, koala preferred trees and koala sightings for NSW.

It will be an important resource to assist government agencies, local councils and private land holders with koala conservation decisions.

The Koala Tree Indices v1.0 is one dataset under the KHIB. These models predict spatially the probability of finding a tree species that a koala prefers for food or shelter. They are built off predictive (Boosted Regression) models of individual koala preferred tree species models, developed following a series of expert reviews. This surface is delivered as a set of nine regional models.

Each region's model is available for download below as a zipped 5m tif image readable in any spatial software package. An ArcGIS mxd is also supplied for suggested symbology.

All Koala Habitat Information Base datasets are available for download at the links below under 'Dataset relationship'.

For further information on the data layers and their development, please see the Koala Habitat Information Base Technical Guide.

Description:

Web Map Service (WMS) is a standard protocol for serving georeferenced map images over the internet that are generated by a map server using data from a GIS Database (NSW Government - Spatial Web Services Register June 2015). WMS allows a user to spatially visualise the dataset, but not query its features. This service is aimed at advanced geographical information users, and will require access to geographical information system (GIS) software such as QGIS and ArcGIS/ArcMap.

Purpose

The Koala Habitat Information Base can help prioritise the establishment of new koala reserves and private land conservation agreements, ensure local actions are based on the best available information, and improve the management of threats and disease. It will be an important resource to assist government agencies, local councils and private land holders with koala conservation decisions. The Koala Habitat Information Base is not a regulatory instrument, meaning the data layers do not categorise land for regulatory purposes. It does provide the best available scientific information to support decision makers, rehabilitators, land managers and community members involved in koala conservation.
