  • This service provides Australian surface hydrology, including natural and man-made features such as water courses (including directional flow paths), lakes, dams and other water bodies. The information was derived from the Surface Hydrology database, with a nominal scale of 1:250,000. The National Basins and Catchments are a national topographic representation of drainage areas across the landscape. Each basin is made up of a number of catchments depending on the features of the landscape. This service shows the relationship between catchments and basins. The service contains layer scale dependencies.

  • Removing the topographic effect from satellite images is a very important step in order to obtain comparable surface reflectance in mountainous areas and to use the images for different purposes on the same spectral base. The most common method of normalising for the topographic effect is by using a Digital Surface Model (DSM) and / or a Digital Elevation Model (DEM). However, the accuracy of the correction depends on the accuracy, scale and spatial resolution of DSM data as well as the co-registration between the DSM and satellite images. A physics based BRDF and atmospheric correction model in conjunction with a 1-second SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission) derived DSM product released by Geoscience Australia in 2010 were used to conduct the analysis reported in this paper. The results show that artefacts in the DSM data can cause significant local errors in the correction. For some areas, false shadow and over corrected surface reflectance factors have been observed. In other areas, the algorithm is unable to detect shadow or retrieve an accurate surface reflectance factor in the slopes away from the sun. The accuracy of co-registration between satellite images and DSM data is crucial for effective topographic correction. A mis-registration error of one or two pixels can lead to large error of retrieved surface reflectance factors in the gully and ridge areas (retrieved reflectance factors can change from 0.3 to 0.5 or more). Therefore, accurate registrations for both satellite images and DSM data are necessary to ensure the accuracy of the correction. Using low resolution DSM data in conjunction with high resolution satellite images can fail to correct some significant terrain effects. A DSM resolution appropriate to the scale of the resolution of satellite image is needed for the best results.

  • The 3 second (~90m) Smoothed Digital Elevation Model (DEM-S) Version 1.0 was derived from resampling the 1 second SRTM derived DEM-S (gridded smoothed digital elevation model; ANZCW0703014016). The DEM represents ground surface topography, excluding vegetation features, and has been smoothed to reduce noise and improve the representation of surface shape. The DEM-S was derived from the 1 second Digital Surface Model (DSM; ANZCW0703013336) and the Digital Elevation Model Version 1.0 (DEM; ANZCW0703013355) by an adaptive smoothing process that applies more smoothing in flatter areas than hilly areas, and more smoothing in noisier areas than in less noisy areas. This DEM-S supports calculation of local terrain shape attributes such as slope, aspect and curvatures that could not be reliably derived from the unsmoothed 1 second DEM because of noise. A full description of the methods is in progress (Gallant et al., in prep) and in the 1 second User Guide. The 3 second DEM was produced for use by government and the public under Creative Commons attribution. The 1 second DSM and DEM that forms the basis of the product are also available as 3 second products (DSM; ANZCW0703014216, DEM; ANZCW0703014182, DEM-S; ANZCW0703014217). <strong>Please note that all 1 second products are available for GOVERNMENT USERS ONLY.</strong>
