Summary
Abstract: The vegetation mapping project used a set of 1987 and 1980 orthophotos and orthophoto mosaics for mapping and screen-digitising (see "Quality" section). Contact AADC for access to these. A shapefile of orthophoto coverage shows polygons for the areas where each orthophoto was used for mapping. This is an essential guide for use when matching the vegetation polygons to the correct orthophotos.

Quality The vegetation mapping project (HI_VEG_ORTHO_VEGMAP) used a set of orthophotos and orthophoto mosaics selected from runs taken in 1980 (casc series, Hasselblad) and 1987 (antc series, Linhof). The 1987 aerial photos were used wherever possible, as resolution was higher. Where there was no 1987 coverage, 1980 aerial photos were rectified and used.
