Abstract Landsat MSS imagery was used to map habitat categories used in connection with aerial census work that estimates population levels of kangaroos. A study area featuring typical habitat patterns was selected in the marginal wheat lands of southern, inland Queensland. A series of unsupervized classifications of the imagery provided accurate estimation of the relative proportions and distribution of these habitats. The data form a useful base for programmes that: monitor the numbers and distribution of kangaroos; and attempt of refine aerial census methodology.
