Description: Land capability classification is an internationally accepted method of ranking the ability of the land to support a range of broadacre agricultural activities on a sustainable basis. In Tasmania the system comprises seven classes ranked in order of agricutltural veratility. Class 1 land is the best and Class 7 the poorest. Classification requires the synthesis and land information including soils, topography and climatic data. DPIWE undertook two approaches to mapping. The first involved intensive field investigations and focussed on parts of the State most likely to include better quality land. Remaining areas were mapped using a computer modelling approach. The classification has been undertaken only for private freehold or leased Crown land and the results are published as 1:100 000 scale maps with, for the field mapped areas, accompanying reports. The maps are useful for State and regional planning though the system can be used at more detailed scales appropriate to local or even farm planning to support informed decision making.
