This report for Auvergne Station is a supplement to Land Resources of the Victoria River District (2012) and completes the land resource assessment of the district which covers 24 properties and approximately 78 760 km² of pastoral land. Land unit mapping at 1:100 000 describes the landforms, soils and vegetation in the district.

Land Resources of Auvergne Station A supplement to the Land Resources of the Victoria River District 10 mid strata were measured using a direct reading clinometer and the average height for the ground strata was estimated. A basal wedge was used to determine unbiased species dominance in the upper strata. For most sites a wedge factor of 0.25 was used however in thickly wooded areas a wedge factor of 0.5 was selected. Growth form of the dominant vegetation type was also described for each stratum. Data Storage Field site records describing landform, soil morphology, soil chemistry and physical soil data are stored in the Northern Territorys Soil and Land Information system (SALInfo). Vegetation information is stored in the Northern Territory Vegetation Site Database (NTVSD). Spatial data and map products are located within the departments corporate spatial library and are available on request. The report for this project is available electronically from the Northern Territory library, while technical data, project findings and derived map products can be accessed and downloaded from the departments web enabled data and information centre, NR Maps. The metadata for the spatial dataset can be sourced from Northern Territory Land Information System. http://nrmaps.nt.gov.au/ http://www.ntlis.nt.gov.au/metadata/export_data?metadata_id=E3F20A909A8123ADE040CD9B21446CC0&type=html http://www.ntlis.nt.gov.au/metadata/export_data?metadata_id=E3F20A909A8123ADE040CD9B21446CC0&type=html
