Request a Ground Cover Report

This page allows you to generate two Ground Cover Reports for a specified location in Queensland.

The Single Year Ground Cover report shows a ground cover threshold map generated from satellite imagery. The map displayed is a single date image from the dry season in the year selected and highlights areas where ground cover is below a user specified threshold.

The Minimum Ground Cover Report shows a map which indicates the lowest ground cover for each satellite pixel in the selected area since the early 1980s.

Note: Whilst all care has been taken to ensure accuracy, no warranty is given in relation to the data (including accuracy, reliability, completeness or fitness for a particular purpose). In all cases, product accuracy remains limited by the spatial resolution of the input data.
Please see our Geoscience Australia place name search to search for locations.

What is your location?

You can choose your location by either the Title Reference (e.g. 12345678), Lot on Plan (e.g. lot 3 and plan MZ594 is 3MZ594), or by latitude and longitude (note: this method may find neighbouring Lot on Plans). Only Lot on Plans >= 100ha are available.

Specify location using:

Lot on Plan
Type of imagery
  1. Minimum Ground Cover is a statistical summary of the entire time series.
Imagery for a Single Year Ground Cover Report

Note: Imagery for the year you request may not be available. FORAGE will try to obtain imagery for the year closest to the one requested.

Groundcover threshold?
