Client: Australian Rail Track Corporation
Area: Parkes-Cootamundra Rail Corridor
Project Type: Vegetation and Weed Assessment, Mapping and Management Plan

A vegetation and weed assessment mapping project was undertaken along a 200km long x 200m wide corridor between Parkes and Cootamundra.
The fieldwork component included driving the entire distance on both sides of the track, recording species location, distribution and densities.
GIS work involved locating sensitive receptors, plotting results and designing a weed management plan. A comprehensive weed management plan was developed covering the various types and categories of weeds.
