Foliage Projective Cover Report
Foliage projective cover (FPC) is the percentage of ground area occupied by the vertical projection of the foliage of woody vegetation. Woody vegetation can have a major impact on grass production. FPC is considered to give a better indication of the influence of woody vegetation on grass productivity than tree basal area (TBA). This is because FPC is more closely related to light interception and tree water use.
This page allows you to generate a Foliage Projective Cover report which shows tree and shrub foliage cover mapping and a summary of average FPC levels for a specified Lot on Plan or adjoining Lots on Plan in Queensland.
The Foliage Projective Cover report includes:
- a map showing FPC calculated from satellite imagery overlain on Lot on Plan boundaries
- a map showing Grazing Land Management (GLM) land types
- a summary of FPC statistics for each GLM land type within the Lot on Plan.
Note: While 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.
