About The Map
This dashboard interactively summarises the extent (area) of commercial citrus orchards in Australia. It has been developed to better enable us to make data-driven decisions now and into the future. As our industry grows it is vital we have an accurate representation of the extent of our production to respond to major events such as biosecurity threats and natural disasters.
This information will enable us to better manage supply and demand across our industry and ensure we are able to make informed, data-driven decisions around water supply, infrastructure, planning and governance. Knowing the extent of our industry will also help us to understand current and predicted production levels and into the future there is the potential to assist growers in achieving the most efficient production.
Privacy has been a key consideration in this development, no personal data or information is captured or stored within this application. We’re looking to account for all the commercial trees in Australia.
This application allows you to identify missing tress and provide feedback and observations.
How To Use It
Navigate the map with the 'bookmark button', search for an address or place name using the 'search button' or simply pan and zoom.
The dashboard also presents summary statistics in a pop-up window. At a national scale, clicking the map will return the area of each state and territory, while zooming into the map will show Local Government Areas (LGAs). Zooming in to LGAs will show the tree crop polygons, which can also be clicked to show information in a pop-up window.
You can watch an introduction and instructional video, or tell us if something is missing at the top of the map below.
Note - the application is supported by ArcGIS Online and whilst you can access it on your mobile device, for the optimal experience we recommend running it on a desktop, in a modern browser.
This initiative is led by the University of New England research team from the Applied Agricultural Remote Sensing Centre (AARSC) and is funded via the federal government Rural R&D for Profit program and through co-investment from project partners.
