VIC DELWP - Victorian Wetlands listed in A Directory of Important Wetlands in Australia (Polygons)

This dataset presents the footprint of Victorian wetlands listed in the 3rd Edition of 'A Directory of Important Wetlands of Australia' (2001). Descriptions for each wetland are available in the directory which is available on the Environment Australia website: http://www.environment.gov.au/water/wetlands/australian-wetlands-database/directory-important-wetlands.

Please note:

  • The data are derived from the WETLAND_1994 CGDL layer, hydrological CGDL layer and other sources such as topographic maps.
  • The 2017 update of the Victorian Wetland Inventory (Current) resulted in improved accuracy of the boundary of a number of wetlands, based on on-ground mapping. WETLAND_CURRENT provided the source data to improve the WETLANDDIR dataset.
