  • The Murray Darling Basin Elevation Project (MDBEP) data covers the areas of the Murray Floodplain (Wakool and Edward Rivers) and Darling catchment areas (Balonne, Barwon, Bokhara, Boomi, Culgoa, Gwydir, Namoi, Macintyre, Macquarie, Mooni and Narran rivers).

  • This metadata file and associated files contain metadata for the Geoscience Australia Kakadu LiDAR project carried out in 2011. This metadata is for the Digital Elevation Model created as 1m grid generated from the LiDAR point data classified as ground. The grid was generated employing a point to TIN and TIN to grid point process with nearest neighbour interpolation. The DEM was generated in ESRI ArcGIS V10 format.

  • Background This report describes a project which involved the capture and processing of LiDAR and coincident imagery and resultant derived products for the lower reaches of the Darling River. The data joins two existing LiDAR datasets, one to the north covering the Menindee Lakes and the other in the south along the Murray River corridor. It is intended to provide the Murray-Darling Basin Authority with a very accurate, quality assured measurement of topography in order to accurately model the flow and volume of water in the floodplains within the project area. The LiDAR was captured in April and May 2013 at a point density of two 1st return points per square metre within swath, (equivalent to two outgoing laser pulses per square metre at ground level). The specified accuracies; 30cm vertical and 80cm horizontal, were achieved and verified through a rigorous network of ground check points and base stations. A set of seamless products were produced including hydro-flattened bare earth DEMs, DSMs and cartographic contours. The outputs of the project are compliant with National ICSM LiDAR Product Specifications and the NEDF.

  • The 1 second SRTM derived DSM Version 1.0 is a 1 arc second (~30m) gridded digital surface model (DSM) that represents ground surface topography as well as features above the ground such as vegetation and man-made structures. The dataset was derived from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data acquired in February 2000, supported by the GEODATA 9 second DEM in void areas and the SRTM Water Body Data. Stripes and voids have been removed from the 1 second SRTM data to provide an enhanced and complete DSM for Australia and near-shore islands. This 1 second DSM forms the source for the 1 second DEM with vegetation offsets removed (ANZCW0703013355) and for smoothed and drainage enforced versions that are expected to be released in 2010. The grid spacing is 1 second in longitude and latitude (approximately 30 metres).

  • The National Catchment Database is a linked set of spatial layers and associated attribute tables describing key elements of the surface water hydrology of the Australian continent at a map scale of about 1:250,000. It is built upon the representation of surface drainage patterns provided by the GEODATA national 9 second Digital Elevation Model (DEM) Version 3 (ANU Fenner School of Environment and Society and Geoscience Australia, 2008). The stream network and catchment boundaries contained within the database form foundation elements of the Bureau of Meteorology's Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric), the spatial framework that underpins the Australian Water Resources Information System (AWRIS) (http://www.bom.gov.au/water/geofabric/index.shtml). This database adds additional environmental attributes not available through the AHGF. The National Drainage Basins delineate the entire catchment area of any outlet to the sea or inland sink based on the GEODATA 9 second DEM. Available in raster and vector formats.
