Physiographic Regions of Australia


The Physiographic Regions of Australia (Pain, Gregory, Wilson and McKenzie 2011) are a modification of those compiled by Jennings and Mabbutt (1977), and are based on a visual interpretation of landforms as expressed on the Shuttle Radar Terrain Mission (SRTM) digital elevation model (DEM). Apart from its descriptive role, a map of physiographic re... more

The Physiographic Regions were digitized or scanned from line work on 1:1 000 000 maps of elevation (SRTM 90m), shaded with an illumination in the NW. Lines were drawn onto the maps (with 4B pencils), by comparing the original lines of Jennings and Mabbutt and the landform patterns that could be seen in the SRTM hill shaded data. State and territory agencies provided corrections and updates to this initial line work, which were also digitized. Line work in Western Australia has been altered significantly, so that it approximates to an aggregation of the state soil landscape survey boundaries. The 1:100 000 Geoscience Australia Coastline (2004) has been used, rather than state specific line work, to provide national consistency. Attributes within the accompanying database were attached to the polygons via the region_id. ------------------- Positional Accuracy: The nominal scale of this dataset is 1:2 500 000 ------------------- Attribute Accuracy Attribute accuracy is consistent across the dataset. Polygon ID's were used to join attribute data that was entered and managed in an Access database. ID's, names and descriptions have been checked for accuracy and consistency. Regolith materials are a concatenation of 3 materials listed in the database, including proportions. ------------------- Logical Consistency The spatial dataset has been checked for overlaps and gaps, and correct labelling. ------------------- Completeness The dataset coverage is complete for the whole of continental Australia.

About this Project

CLSD DAFF/ACLEP 2009-10/(C2009/10948)


The Australian Collaborative Land Evaluation Program (ACLEP) was established in 1992 and is a proven model for national cooperation, collaboration and effective multi-jurisdictional activity. ACLEP is a partnership between CSIRO Land and Water, the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and the state and territory agencies responsible for ... more
