DBCA Fuel Age: SW Forest (DBCA-005)

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions Fuel Age dataset is derived from the departments Fire History dataset. It shows the years since each area of department managed land was burnt (or cleared), and whether this was due to a prescribed burn, bushfire, clearfell or mining rehabilitation. The dataset has been processed to eliminate any small slivers or polygons less than 0.1ha. As such it should be used as a visual representation only. For statistical or analytical information please use the Fire History dataset. The calculation of YSLB is based on financial years.

Three views of the Fuel Age dataset are present in the DBCA-005 service. The three Fuel Age views show the Year Since Last Burnt grouped into the following categories:

DBCA Fuel Age - SW Forest 1-6+ Years; DBCA Fuel Age - SW Forest 1-20 Years; DBCA Fuel Age - SW Forest 5 Year Groupings.

Note that the fuel age information has been clipped down to remnant vegetation, plantation and mining rehabilitation areas. For further information please contact the data custodian.
