  • The coverage of this dataset is over the Taree region . The C3 LAS data set contains point data in LAS 1.2 format sourced from a LiDAR ( Light Detection and Ranging ) from an ALS50 ( Airborne Laser Scanner ) sensor . The processed data has been manually edited to achieve LPI classification level 3 whereby the ground class contains minimal non-ground points such as vegetation , water , bridges , temporary features , jetties etc . Purpose: To provide fit-for-purpose elevation data for use in applications related to coastal vulnerability assessment, natural resource management ( especially water and forests) , transportation and urban planning . Additional lineage information: This data has an accuracy of 0.3m ( 95 confidence ) horizontal with a minimum point density of one laser pulse per square metre. For more information on the data's accuracy, refer to the lineage provided in the data history .

  • Digital Elevation Model data record the terrain height variations from the processed point-located data recorded on an airborne geophysical survey. The aircraft altimeter data records the height of the aircraft above the ground and the aircraft GPS records the height of the aircraft above the ellipsoid. Subtracting the two values enables the height of the terrain beneath the aircraft relative to the ellipsoid to be calculated. This ellipsoidal terrain height is corrected for the variation between the ellipsoid and the geoid (the n-value correction) to produce terrain heights relative to sea level.

  • The radiometric, or gamma-ray spectrometric method, measures the natural variations in the gamma-rays detected near the Earth's surface as the result of the natural radioactive decay of potassium, uranium and thorium. The data are collected on airborne geophysical surveys conducted by Commonwealth, State & NT Governments and the private sector.

  • Gravity data measure small changes in gravity due to changes in the density of rocks beneath the Earth's surface. The data are collected on geophysical surveys conducted by Commonwealth, State & NT Governments and the private sector.

  • Linespacing for the survey is 400 metres

  • The 2016 Lawn Hill VTEM™Plus airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey was funded under the Queensland Government’s Future Resources (Mount Isa Geophysics) Initiative and managed by Geoscience Australia on behalf of the Geological Survey of Queensland. The survey covers an area of 3215 km2 which aims to attract explorers into ‘greenfield’ terranes and contribute to the discovery of the next generation of major mineral and energy deposits under shallow sedimentary cover. The survey is an extension to the 2016 East Isa VTEM™Plus Survey (eCAT:104700)

  • The 2016 Southern Thomson Orogen VTEM™Plus AEM Survey was conducted by Geoscience Australia as part of a collaborative investigation between the Commonwealth of Australia (Geoscience Australia) and its partners the State of New South Wales (Department of Trade and Investment, Geological Survey of New South Wales) and the State of Queensland (Department of Natural Resources and Mines, Geological Survey of Queensland). The Project aims to better understand the geological character and mineral potential of the southern Thomson Orogen region, focusing on the border between New South Wales and Queensland, by acquiring and interpreting multi-disciplinary geophysical, geochemical and geological data. The primary intended impact of this work is to provide the mineral exploration industry with pre-competitive data and knowledge that reduces risk and encourages mineral exploration in the region. Geoscience Australia contracted Geotech Airborne Pty Ltd to acquire VTEM™Plus AEM data over part of the Southern Thomson Orogen in Queensland and New South Wales in May and June 2016.The data were also processed by Geotech Airborne Ltd using its FullWaveForm® processing techniques. The survey area consists of 2415 line km of time-domain AEM geophysical data acquired in five survey blocks. The majority of traverse lines were spaced at 5000 m in an east-west direction, further details about each blocks flight line specifications can be found in Table 1. The original data supplied by Geotech Airborne Pty Ltd has been modified to contain the final data fields of principal interest, enabling a manageable data file size. This data is available from Geoscience Australia's website free of charge. The comprehensive dataset is available from Geoscience Australia by emailing mineralgeophysics@ga.gov.au. The data release package includes: - Point-located electromagnetic dB/dt and derived B-field data with associated position, altimeter, orientation, magnetic gradiometer, and derived ground elevation data. These data are in ASCII column format with associated README and ASEG-GDF2 header files. The dataset consists of a separate download file for the: - Survey Lines - Repeat lines - Waveform files for every flight containing the 192 kHz sampling of the transmitter current and receiver waveforms. - Point-located conductivity estimates derived using the EM Flow® conductivity depth imaging (CDI) algorithm with associated position, altimeter, orientation, magnetic gradiometer, and derived ground elevation data. Data include the conductivity estimate for each 5 m interval and selected depth slices. - Gridded data, at 1 km cell size in, for the conductivity depth slices derived from the EM Flow® CDI data, magnetics and elevation data in ER Mapper® binary raster grid format with associated header files. - Graphical multiplots, in PDF format, for each flight line showing EM Flow® CDI sections and profiles of Z-component dB/dt data, magnetics, powerline monitor, height and orientation data. - Contractor supplied Operations Report. - ESRI shapefiles and KML files of flight lines. - Metadata and License files.
