Mesh Block Vegetation Cover and Tree Canopy for Perth and Peel - 2018

Measurement of tree canopy, shrubs and grass cover for the Perth and Peel regions. Data has been aggregated to modified Mesh Block boundaries (ABS 2011, University of Western Australia, 2016). Modification of Mesh Block boundaries includes the addition of an infrastructure component for each Mesh Block. Green measures are based on CSIRO Urban Monitor data for 2009. See Urban Monitor: Enabling effective monitoring and management of urban and coastal environments using digital aerial photography (Caccetta et al, 2009) for further information on Urban Monitor Data. Vegetation measures are presented as a percentage of the polygon area that is covered by vegetation broken down into five height based classifications:

  • Grass Cover
  • Shrubs
  • Trees with vegetation height in the range of three to 10 metres
  • Trees with vegetation height in the range of 10 to 15 metres
  • Trees with vegetation height greater than 15 metres.

Dataset derived from the following: 1. ABS 2011 Census Meshblocks 2. CSIRO Urban Monitor 2009 Monitoring land surface and cover in urban and peri-urban environments using digital aerial photography. Peter Caccetta, Simon Collings, Andrew Devereux, Kassell Hingee, Don McFarlane, Anthony Traylen, Xiaoliang Wu & Zheng-Shu Zhou Vector data compiled by the University of Western Australia. Vegetation measures calculated by CSIRO based on Urban Monitor data. For more information, visit: Clean Air and Urban Landscape's Hub (CAUL)
