The following spatial (mapped) datasets are available on request through our Geographic Information Services. Some datasets may also be available as free downloads from the WA Shared Land Information Platform (SLIP).

Agricultural land use

Agricultural land use has been captured for several intensive agricultural industries using the Australian Land Use and Management (ALUM) methodologies and classifications. Land use data is captured at a scale of 1:10 000, by digitising Areas of Interest (AOI) from aerial photo interpretation.

Agricultural properties

Clients can request a single dataset of individual land management units, on or to which an event like an inspection or agricultural activity etc. takes place. A property is spatially defined as one or many contiguous land parcels managed as a single unit.

Pastoral lease infrastructure information

Pastoral plans for each lease in Western Australia are maintained by the department under a memorandum of understanding with the Pastoral Lands Board. These are available to the public on request at cost. A completed and signed Permission to release a copy of station plan form must accompany all requests. The form can be downloaded from the Documents section of this page.

Soils information

Comprehensive statewide coverage of soil-landscape mapping at a variety of scales is available. A range of land management hazards and capabilities have also been rated against the units mapped in the agricultural area.

Vegetation information

This includes native vegetation extent (what remains uncleared) and pre-European vegetation types (broad-scale mapping of what was present before clearing).

Our Geographic Information Services group offers customised map products relating to soils, vegetation, climate and farm planning.

A range of free downloadable map products are available from the DAFWA Research Library map gallery.
