LC LAND CLASSIFICATION 1885-1960 The concept of land classification was introduced into the Land Act in 1884. Remaining Crown Lands were identified for leasing or sale and for reservation for public uses - e.g. water reserves and timber reserves. Land to be offered for private use was graded according to its productive capability, and conditions of tenure including rental and maximum allotment size were tailored accordingly. The first determinations were published in the mind 1880's, and later these were modified as further information became available and as interpretations of land capability changed. Mapping was based on county plans 1 inch:�2 miles3.219�Km 10,560�Feet 3,520�Yards 3,218.688�Meters 126,720�inch; those plans which are dated prior to 1884 are in fact the original working manuscripts, colour-coded on base plans which were published some years earlier. Land classification was perpetuated in all Land Acts following 1884 and plans were maintained as an administrative aid until the 1960's. Re-classifications of particular areas are reflected by the various groupings within this sub-collection. Plans numbered 1 to 37 represent the original classifications of the 1880's, approved by the Governor-in-council and published. Nos. 38-77 feature revisions published in the mid 1890's. Nos. 78-115 are manuscripts upon which the original plans were based; Nos. 118-138, 139-164 and 165-243 are working collections maintained by various branches of the Department of Crown Lands and Survey. The last mentioned grouping was maintained by the Occupation Branch which administered leases, licences and sales. This is a sub collection from VPRS 8168 Historic Plan Collection.

RUN PASTORAL RUNS 1847 - 1882 These plans portray the large areas of Crown Land licensed by squatters for grazing. All plans show the boundaries of the runs and those plans which refer to only one or a few runs may also give descriptions of vegetation and relief and plot tracks, fences, and huts. The sub-collection comprises three parts. Nos. 1-400 are a mixture of manuscripts drawn at small and large scales and may depict individual runs, or the array of runs occurring over whole regions. Nos. 401-1381 deal with individual runs and may be rough sketches or more carefully compiled manuscripts. These were originally held within pastoral run files, but in the course of microfilming these files prior to their transfer to the Public Record Office, Laverton the plans were extracted, repaired and formally added to the sub-collection. Nos. 1382 onwards are printed maps showing the distribution of runs over large areas.

LODDON RIVERS 1839 - 1874 The surveying of major rivers in Victoria was commenced soon after the establishment of the Melbourne Survey Office to provide basic information about the physical geography of the new colony. Information produced by these surveys was very detailed and the resultant plans are extremely useful in tracing the movements of river channels since European settlement. Early pastoral settlements are sometimes plotted on these plans. This is a sub colection of VPRS8168 Historic Plan Collection.

VPRS 16625/P1 Aerial Photographs 1978-1979. This series of Aerial Photographs consists of diapositives and prints. These are generally copies of Department of Crown Lands and Survey (VA 538) aerial photography and in most cases were part of standard Department of Crown Lands and Survey Map Sheet Set. These were used by the State Rivers and Water Commission (VA 723), the Rural Water Commission (VA 2338), and the Rural Water Corporation (VA 4234) to produce Photomosaics to record flood elevations and extents and assist in the design of rural water supply infrastructure.
