2020 Spatial Analysis and Mapping of Community Vulnerability to Natural Disasters in the Hunter, Central Coast and MidCoast regions
This report provides an overview of the process undertaken to develop a spatial data library for the purpose of identifying relative community vulnerability to natural hazards across the Central Coast, Cessnock, Dungog, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, MidCoast, Muswellbrook, Newcastle, Port Stephens, Singleton and Upper Hunter Local Government Areas (LGAs). The spatial data library facilitates the integrated collation and analysis of spatial information datasets (representing population, environmental and natural hazards) that are relevant to identifying the location and relative vulnerability of communities.
Datasets and a GIS User Guide are also available to Hunter, Central Coast and MidCoast Councils on request.
