2019–20 SLATS Report

Data usability rating :
Contains open format machine-readable open data.

The Statewide Landcover and Trees Study (SLATS) monitors woody vegetation extent, clearing and regrowth using Sentinel-2 satellite imagery. This report for the 2019–20 monitoring period is the second change report in the current series of SLATS reporting which monitors and accounts for woody vegetation extent and change in Queensland, annually. The monitoring period is nominally from August 2019 to August 2020. The methodology monitors and reports change in woody vegetation extent against a 2018 woody vegetation extent baseline which is updated annually with clearing and regrowth mapping. Included are data about the clearing activity type and estimates of woody vegetation density and age, to better describe what woody vegetation currently exists, and where and how it is being cleared. Regrowth reporting is included for the first time in the 2019–20 data. The clearing data are directly comparable with the 2018–19 report but are not comparable with previous SLATS reporting up to and including the 2017–18 SLATS report.
