This dataset and associated metadata can be obtained from www.ga.gov.au, using catalogue number 75830. METHODS (continued from Lineage field): Contours were hand drawn from point water level data. Groundwater water levels along rivers with high EVI values were assumed to be 10m below ground. This information was used to interpret groundwater level contours where borehole water level data was absent. In areas of sparse data coverage the 3 second DEM was used to constrain contours below ground level. SA water levels were corrected for density effects due to salinity (in excess of 100,000 mg/L TDS in some bores in the Eyre Basin) but all others were uncorrected because salinity data were not available. Density corrections for the watertable are not deemed to be an issue outside of the SA portion of the GAB. Remote sensing studies of Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) were also used in the interpretation to provide water level information along certain rivers (refer to data set "Watercourses used to calculate riparian evapotranspiration loss from the GAB") where there were no boreholes. The hand drawn transparencies interpreted by Jim Kellet were scanned into a 2bit tiff file format. Scanned images were then rectified within ArcGIS and vectorised into linework using the ArcScan toolset to produce the polygon dataset Linework and were attributed with a contour value within the field "height", as well as a DESCRIPTION of the line TYPE in the field "descript". The grid surface was created using the Topo to Raster tool in the Spatial Analyst toolset from the values within the "height" field and clipped to the Revised Great Artesian Basin boundary and GEODATA TOPO 250K coastline. Note: data used to compile this map was a combination of the most recent available water level measurements (as at 2011), water level measurements at the time of drilling or the first water cut reported in drillers logs.

  • The Environmental Arttibutes Database is a set of lookup tables supplying attributes describing the natural and anthropogenic characteristics of the stream and catchment environment that was developed by the Australian National University (ANU) in 2011. The data is supplied as part of the supplementary Geofabric products which is associated with the 9 second DEM derived streams and the National Catchment Boundaries based on 250k scale stream network. Please consult the spreadsheet below for details of the attributes and their source data.

  • As part of the Urban Digital Elevation Modelling (UDEM) Project (July 2008- June 2010), Airborne LiDAR data were acquired in partnership with State jurisdictions over priority areas including Perth-Bunbury, Adelaide, Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney and the NSW Hunter and Central Coast. These datasets were then further processed to produce hydrologically enforced and conditioned DEMs (Hydro-DEMs).

  • 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).
