Intertidal and subtidal mapping background
Intertidal and subtidal classification and mapping provides an understanding of the nature and extent of ecosystems to enable effective management.
Queensland’s intertidal and subtidal mapping builds on existing information, including wetland mapping, regional ecosystem mapping and multiple other datasets. This information is combined with feedback from a broad range of experts. Only Central Queensland (CQ) has been mapped.
Intertidal and subtidal ecosystem classification and mapping for Central Queensland
The Queensland Intertidal and Subtidal Ecosystem Classification scheme (the scheme) provided the understanding and classification of the biological, physical and chemical factors determining the nature and extent of ecosystems that underpins the mapping and ecosystem type descriptions. These datasets are available to inform a range of general management and planning purposes.
