SEED the change
Growing knowledge with NSW environmental data.
What is the SEED initiative?
SEED is the NSW Government’s central resource for Sharing and Enabling Environmental Data. It was developed for the NSW community in a collaborative effort between government agencies to provide an accessible and reliable platform for environmental data.

FireHistory is a feature class that holds final fire boundaries for every year for which there is data.
This dataset contains ‘Base Case’ and ‘Current Policy’ greenhouse gas emission projections for NSW by year and by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) sector out to 2050.
Digital soil maps (DSMs) are prepared through quantitative modelling techniques that are based on relationships between soil attributes and the environment.

Popular Tools and Resources
To get the most out of SEED, we also provide tools and resources to help you access and use environmental data.
Miners and Explorers Map
See environmental map layers in NSW to assist in avoiding environmentally sensitive areas when planning exploration and mining projects.
See a list of datasets from the Department of Planning and Environment – Water
See the collection of datasets and analyses of NSW biodiversity and landscape to understand the broad environmental effects of the extraordinary fire events of 2019–20. This information supports fire research and recovery efforts.
Koala Habitat Information Base
See the state-wide Koala Habitat Information Base that has been developed as part of the NSW Koala Strategy. These datasets deliver the best available state-wide spatial data on koala habitat, likelihood, koala preferred trees and koala sightings for NSW. [Image: Scott Herrington/DPIE]
Coal Seam Gas Boreholes
See the location and details of CSG boreholes across NSW, including the depth and when each was drilled.
Soil and Land Information
See soil information for NSW using the eSPADE information system. View profile, landscape and mapping products, such as soil type, land and soil capability, soil fertility, land use, soil landscape maps and acid sulfate risk maps.
