A national map of protected cropping systems (AS20003)
What’s it all about?
This investment will deliver a national map of protected cropping systems across Australia, including the location and area of all commercial nets, polytunnels, shade houses and glasshouses. This information will allow the protected cropping sector to better understand industry demographics and will serve as an essential tool for improved biosecurity preparedness and natural disaster response and recovery.
The project team will aggregate existing and newly derived information to develop the map, including existing spatial layers, industry data, historic and recently acquired high-resolution remote sensing data, spatial analytics and extensive on-ground validation.
