Grazing land management land types - Channel Country - Draft

The Draft GLM Land Types of Queensland is the spatial representation of Queensland Grazing Land Management (GLM) Land Types as described by the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry(DAFF). The spatial representation of Draft GLM Land Types has been produced by the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy by correlating Queensland Grazing Land Management Land Type's (version 1.3) textual data with Draft Pre-clearing Vegetation Communities and Regional Ecosystems spatial data (accessed June 2010). This has produced land type mapping at a map scale of 1:250,000. The mapping applies to parts of western and northern Queensland not covered by Pre-clearing Vegetation Communities and Regional Ecosystems of Queensland (version 6b) mapping The Draft GLM Land Types mapping also contains data produced by correlating Queensland Grazing Land Management Land Type's (version 1.3) textual data with Pre-clearing Vegetation Communities and Regional Ecosystems of Queensland (version 6b) spatial data. This has produced land type mapping at a map scale of 1:100,000. This mapping corresponds to the Gulf Plains and Cape York Peninsula regions of Pre-clearing Vegetation Communities and Regional Ecosystems of Queensland (version 6b) mapping. The land types allocated for these regions are considered to be preliminary allocations only and therefore have been removed from Queensland Grazing Land Management Land Types version 3 mapping. GLM Land types are described in terms of their landform, woody vegetation, expected pasture composition (including suitable sown pastures and introduced weeds), and soil characteristics. Limitations to use of the land and grazing management recommendations are also provided. More than 230 land types from 19 grazing land management regions in Queensland have been described. Development and compilation of the names and descriptions of the 'Land types of Queensland' was undertaken by the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry(DAFF) Grazing Land Management Team.
