The 2016-2021 mangrove extent dataset was released as part of the Phase 1 of the National Ocean Account. It compares the mangrove extent data from the Census years 2016 and 2021.

Mangrove extent is presented in the data as hectares.

This dataset includes 2016 and 2021 Mangrove extent information that was derived from the Digital Earth Australia (DEA) Mangrove Canopy Cover (Landsat) product. This product consists of a sequence (one per year) of 30m resolution maps that are generated by analysing the Landsat fractional cover developed by the Joint Remote Sensing Research Program and the Global Mangrove Watch layers developed by the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency.

Mangrove extent accounts have been created using Geoscience Australia’s DEA Mangrove Cover Product (Geoscience Australia 2022) at the source 30m resolution. The data provides detail on extent of mangroves as per the cover classes shown in table 4. The extent accounts have been compiled using the same methodology as was used to compile the National Land Account, see here for further details; National Land Account, Experimental Estimates methodology, 2016.

Towards A National Ocean Account is a discussion article that highlights learnings from the development of the Account. Feedback continues to be sought on the functionality and use of Phase 1 and 2 of the Account.

Made possible by the Digital Atlas of Australia
The Digital Atlas of Australia is an Australian Government initiative being led by Geoscience Australia. It will bring together trusted datasets from across government in an interactive, secure, and easy-to-use geospatial platform. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is working in partnership with Geoscience Australia to establish a set of web services to make ABS data available in the Digital Atlas.
