Erodible Soils Report

This page allows you to produce an Erodible Soils report for a particular location in the Burdekin catchment and Fitzroy NRM region.

The Erodible Soils report provides information on how likely the soils on a Lot on Plan or adjoining Lots on Plan are susceptible to erosion through three maps:

  1. overall soil erodibility
  2. surface soil stability
  3. subsoil erodibility.

Soil erodibility on these maps is the likelihood that a particular soil is going to slake and/or disperse and be susceptible to erosion. This information has been produced specifically for areas within the Burdekin catchment and Fitzroy NRM region.

The maps were produced for regional or sub-catchment investigations, for example comparing soils in major tributaries of rivers, and not at a property scale. The maps were produced at a scale of 1:250,000 where 1cm represents 2.5km. These maps cover an area of 45km by 45km.

For further information refer to the Erodible Soils User Guide, or FAQs.

Information about soil erosion is also available.

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.

Request an Erodible Soils report

Complete the fields below with your property information and an Erodible Soils report will be emailed, in PDF format, to the email address provided. Text inserted into the ‘Label’ option will appear in the report alongside the lot on plan and date of the request. The additional information can assist the user with identifying the property location of the report, especially when more than one location is requested.

What is your location?

You can choose your location by either Lot on Plan (e.g. Lot 3 and Plan MZ594 is 3MZ594), or by latitude and longitude (note: this method may find neighbouring Lots on Plan). Only Lots on Plan greater than or equal to 5ha are available.

You can also request the report for multiple Lots on Plan by entering each Lot on Plan into the field provided and separate them by commas, (e.g. 3MZ594, 1RP2345, 2SP6789). Lots on Plan must have adjoining boundaries for the image to generate.

If the Lot on Plan is unknown, use Geoscience Australia place name search to search for the likely latitude and longitude of your Lot on Plan.

Specify location using:
Lot on Plan
Latitude (if the latitude is in decimal degrees enter directly into the degrees box below)
Longitude (if the longitude is in decimal degrees enter directly into the degrees box below)
