Custodial Program: Forest, Fire and Regions

Abstract: Polygons delineating Forest Management Blocks. The layer also contains aggregations of forest management blocks representing other administrative boundaries such as Forest Districts, Work Centres, Forest Management Areas (FMAs), VicForests Adiminstrative areas and an approximation to RFAs based on blocks. This is implemented via the use of Arc/Info region attribute tables.

Purpose: Forest Management Blocks are a fundamental forest management administrative unit. FORMB100 plays a key role in describing the location of forest related entities such as logging coupes both at the block level and at higher levels such as districts and FMAs.. Entry of linework is consistent with the Departmental Standing Instruction (no. 01-20-0246- 1).The instruction states that FMA boundaries must follow block boundaries and that block boundaries must follow stable features such as roads, streams etc. The Departmental Instruction can be found in the supporting documentation. Any future alterations to FMA or block boundaries require approval as per the Instruction. FORMB25 is a related dataset which delineates areas down to the compartment level. FORMB25 and FORMB100 should be maintained concurrently. However, until the FORMB25 coverage is complete, the FORMB100 coverage is the most authorative statewide definition of block and other administrative boundaries. The AS2482 code which reflects the feature used to define the boundary (eg: road or stream) should be completed.

Atribute Accuracy: All arcs except those taken from BLOCK100 have AS2482, SOURCED and SOURCEA coding which was either retained from the base coverage or calculated if the arc was digitised. All polygon labels are complete and coded correctly.
Logical Consistency: All values contained In the AAT and the PATs have been checked against the appropriate lists of valid codes.
Data Source: Most of the linework and the AS2482 feature is derived from base coverages. Otherwise, linework was taken from the original BLOCK100 library coverage which was mostly derived from base coverages but did not include AS2482 coding. Many additional small arcs were digitised to connect base data arcs. (eg. to connect the end of a road to a stream).
Completeness: Islands less than 10 ha in area are not included.
