National Land Use mapping
Land use data mapped at the national scale (1:2,500,000) using ABS agricultural commodity data and satellite imagery can be downloaded from this page. Table 1 provides links to the datasets and associated documents that should be read before using the data. National land use data is available for the 1992-93, 1993-94, 1996-97, 1998-99, 2000-01, 2001-02, 2005-06 and 2010-11 financial years. The 2015-16 dataset is currently in production.
Please note that the 2010-11 and 2005-06 national land use map use version 5 and version 4 of the national mapping methodology, respectively, while the earlier versions use version 3. The 2010-11 and 2005-06 user guide documents provide more information on the difference between the methodologies.
