3 second abiotic environmental raster data for the NARCLIM region of Australia aggregated from various sources for modelling biodiversity patterns


This collection of 9-second raster data was compiled for use in modelling biodiversity pattern by developers engaged in supporting the New South Wales Biodiversity Indicators Program. Substrate and landform data derive from existing collections and have been altered from their native format to fill missing and erroneous data gaps as described in th... more

The abiotic environmental data in this collection are grouped by broad type - climate, substrate and landform. Datasets are provided in separate compressed folders (*.zip or *.7z). An excel spreadsheet is included with the collection that list and briefly describes all datasets and their source URLs, and the processing location of the data in the CSIRO project archive. A lineage document summarises the mask and gap filling processes. Mask data were developed from existing spatial boundary data including Australian coastline, State and administration boundaries, and previous raster modelling masks for the NARCLIM region. The data gap filling process was conducted in three stages (python processing scripts are included in this collection). In the first stage, the process used a 10 cell Inverse Distance Weighted (IDW) algorithm to fill no Data areas with data. The IDW algorithm used the distance of data values in the search radius as inverse weights in a neighbourhood average. To deal with remaining larger gaps, a second stage IDW was run on the outputs of the first stage with an increased radius of 500 cells. Any remaining data gaps were filled with a global data average. This process of data filling may make the data unsuitable for other uses and should be carefully considered before use. Images of each dataset are provided in the collection for ease of reference. Data are supplied in ESRI float grid format, GCS GDA94 Geographic Coordinate System Geocentric Datum of Australia (GDA) 1994.


The authors would like to thank Tim Cooney, Joanne Wilson, Alana Burley, Ron Avery and Philip Gleeson for their assistance or advice during the development of this data collection. This work was funded by the New South Wales Office of Environment and Heritage (now part of the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment) in a partnership with the CSIRO Land and Water. Spatial modelling and scripts for data gap filling were undertaken by Martin Nolan, Darran King led the mask creation process and development of workflow diagrams in Gliffy and supported data packaging and delivery. Tom Harwood led generation of the climate variables and coastline refinement with advice from John Gallant and supported by Chris Ware and Jenet Austin. Kristen Williams managed the project and completed the documentation and delivery of this data collection.

BBA2: Conduct the baseline assessment and prepare a state of NSW biodiversity report


Part 1 of the baseline assessment identified which essential variables and indicators are most likely to be feasible to implement for the baseline assessment. Part 2 works closely with OEH capability units responsible for future implementation of the baseline and change assessments, to test and refine the approach; iterating as needed toward a fina... more
