Strategic cropping land online mapping tool
The trigger maps are a starting point for identifying strategic cropping land (SCL). The maps are based on soil, land and climate information, and indicate the location of the potential SCL in Queensland. On-ground assessment against the SCL criteria will confirm the actual extent of SCL at a property or project level.
This web page enables you to select an area of interest (using a Lot on Plan number or central coordinate) and obtain a SCL trigger map on the property in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) that can be emailed to a valid email address, free of charge.
The maps are A3 portrait and should be printed at this size to obtain the best resolution.
Information about your map request is collected to process this transaction. Map requests including that information are logged for quality assurance and product enhancement purposes only.
Don't know your Lot on Plan?
Check the Queensland Atlas online map to locate your property. Zoom in to the locality and select 'Property' in the Area of Interest list on the left-hand side and use the 'Identify' tool. Alternatively, Lot on Plans are generally listed on local government rates notices
Don't know the coordinates of a place?
Geoscience Australia offers a service where you can obtain the digital degrees of any place in the national gazetteer.
- Only one Lot on Plan number can be entered for each map.
- The map will show cadastral lines in the vicinity.
- The Lot on Plan number needs to be entered without spaces.
- If the Lot on Plan number is invalid you will receive an email advising that the request for a map has failed.
- The Lot on Plan number is not case sensitive, i.e. 'a' is the same as 'A'.
- The coordinate has to be given in decimal degrees (e.g. 154.5083).
- If your coordinate is in degrees, minutes and seconds (e.g. 154 30' 30") use the degrees calculator (right) to get degrees minutes seconds changed into decimal degrees format.
- The coordinate should be centred on your area of interest.
- A latitude and longitude is required to provide a valid central coordinate.
- The input boxes are formatted to accept two integers and four decimal places for a latitude, and three integers and four decimal places for a longitude.
- The negative sign is automatically added to the latitude.
- The average file size is 300 kilobytes.
- If you have any problems using this service, please email email@example.com.
