Habitat Patches: The patches have been identified through use of an effective habitat area analysis. This analysis reflects the generalist habitat condition assigned to every 15m grid cell across the ACT region and the context or combined habitat values of the grids that surround it or are in its near vicinity. Patches are defined by polygons that include all adjoining grid cells that are in the highest 20% for spatial context for all grid cells across the ACT Region. The legend indicates patches that are >10ha or that are from 5 – 10 ha.The ACT connectivity mapping was undertaken by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. The study was funded as part of the offset package for the loss of woodland associated with the Kings Highway upgrade. A full study report has been produced, and is entitled Fine Scale Modelling of Fauna Habitat and Connectivity Values in the ACT Region. This study built upon an earlier report entitled the Ecological Connectivity for Climate Change in the ACT and surrounding region, commissioned by the ACT Government as part of Weathering the Change Action Plan 1. The report was undertaken by the Fenner School of Environment and Society, Australian National University. It is recommended that both reports be consulted when use is being made of the connectivity mapping available.
