Land, soil and vegetation information

Land, soil and vegetation information is available across the Northern Territory (NT) in the form of maps, datasets and reports. 

Information includes:

  • spatial data and derived map products in a range of formats including GIS data and PDF
  • map unit descriptions of landform, soil and/or vegetation
  • landscape, vegetation and soil profile descriptions
  • technical reports
  • general land suitability.

Detailed information is available around population centres such as Darwin, Katherine, Alice Springs and some smaller towns and other areas. More general, less detailed information is available for most of the rest of the NT.

This information and mapping is available to land holders, industry, consultants and the general public.
