Lantana remote sensing

Detailed maps of lantana distribution throughout Queensland and New South Wales have been developed using satellite imagery, paired with a predictive computer model.

The regional scale mapping information provided through this system will detect lantana down to a 100 m² pixel area with approximately 80 percent accuracy.

Mapping data is available to key stakeholders to encourage better strategic management of lantana, for the protection of important environmental, economic and social assets.

National Plan to Protect Environmental Assets from Lantana

    The Plan to Protect Environmental Assets from Lantana was developed to coordinate Australia’s response to lantana invasion in native ecosystems.

    This plan, developed by researchers from the NSW Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water, in collaboration with the Lantana WoNS Program, provides a framework for the prioritisation of management investment toward those species and ecosystems most at risk.

    For more information on how you can be involved; and to view the current list of species and ecological communities affected by lantana, please visit the Lantana Plan website.
