Launceston Urban Mapping Project (1996)
This was a joint project between local government and Mineral Resources Tasmania.
Three 1:25 000 scale compilation maps have been produced to cover the 145 km2 project area. The themes available are:
Larger scale maps, at 1:10 000 scale, have been produced to cover six sub-areas (see index map below). The three themes (geology, engineering geology and advisory landslide zoning) are also available for each of the 1:10 000 scale areas.
Launceston Urban Mapping Project - Geology (6 Maps) (1996)

Launceston Urban Mapping Project - Advisory Landslide Zoning (6 Maps) (1996) (see note 2)
Note 1: The legend for the Launceston Engineering Geology maps is provided on a separate sheet including a table of typical engineering properties for each mapped unit.
Note 2: The Advisory Landslide Zoning maps in this series (except the Hadspen area) have now been superseded by the Tasmanian Landslide Map Series - Launceston, 2005
