Quality Field mapping was conducted across the region during the 2003-04 season. Distances between traverse lines varied averaged about ~2km, but vary from 1km to 10km. These areas are specified in the data.

Mapping was performed on a rectified SPOT-5 2.5m resolution image taken in January 2004, with 1974 and 1995 stereo colour aerial photography used as ... View entire text
