Spatial data services: Spatial data on terrain, vegetation, hydrology, soils, climate and imagery can support a range of programs such as regional planning. Spatial information exists as reports (e.g. mining exploration in the Queensland Murray-Darling Basin), tables, maps, imagery and geodatabase. Through GIS software (predominantly ArcGIS), QMDC can analyse and model features such as terrain, hydrology and ecological scenarios (waterCAST, Ground Cover Index). We can overlay property boundaries, remnant vegetation, wildlife corridors, streams, wetlands, erosion/salinty hot spots, land tenure (mining, grazing or conservation) or any other information collected.
