WetlandUpdate November 2013

Updated WetlandMaps

WetlandMaps has undergone a new look and feel to include the new Google maps application programming interface or API. You may notice some improvements to the application. Some functions that were previously available will be added into the application in the near future.

New Project fact sheets

Queensland coastal marine and estuarine habitat classification for enhanced coastal planning and management outcomes and esturaine and marine habitat mapping

The aim of this project is to develop an integrated intertidal and subtidal habitat classification system for coastal marine and estuarine habitats. This will facilitate enhanced coastal planning and management in Queensland.

Wetlands and catchment management and rehabilitation in South East Queensland

This project will deliver a number of products that will assist future planning, management and rehabilitation activities in South East Queensland (SEQ). Groundwater Dependant Ecosystems (GDEs) and hydrological processes will be identified and Aquatic Conservation Assessments (ACAs) will be completed for all catchments in SEQ.

Cape York catchments aquatic conservation assessment

Cape York riverine and non-riverine aquatic conservation assessment (ACA) report has been released. The Cape York ACA is made up of seventeen individual catchments. The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection has applied AquaBAMM separately to the non-riverine (i.e. palustrine and lacustrine) and riverine wetlands within each of the Cape York catchments. Estuarine values were considered and, where appropriate, included as part of the riverine results.
