Data Quality

Lineage:Original linework derived sterographically/visually using aerial photography/satellite imagery to delinate linework/units onto paper topographic maps, resultant linework traced onto stable film. Film overlays were scanned into GIS system as ARC/INFO vector information then built as polygon coverage AMG52/AGD66 then attributes attatched.
Aerial photography 1:80 000 B&W-RC9 196?/??
1:?? 000 Colour 19??/??
Satellite imagery 1:100 000 False Colour 198?
Base maps Australian 1:250 000 Topographic Survey Series AGD66
GIS ARC/INFO vector information as polygon coverages AMG52/AGD66

Positional Accuracy:Derived from 1:250 000 topographic base maps, defined by scale used +/- 250m

Attribute Accuracy:Good - Extensive field survey followed by analysis of data

Logical Consistency:All polygons are closed, nodes are formed at intersections,there is one label per polygon and all polygons have been clasified for rainforest type ID

Completeness:Complete for NT, where possible all unit IDs have been checked in the field
