Description

Abstract:

SALInfo - Soil And Land Information System
This is an NT wide corporate soil and landform point database that stores soil profile and landform descriptions collected by the land and vegetation group. It contains new information and historical information collected as far back as the 1940's. It was originally built in 2002 but underwent a major upgrade in 2008.

Data Quality

Lineage:SALInfo is the NT soil and land point source corporate database with items as per Australian Standards. Site data is recorded in the field and entered into SALInfo. It stores profile descriptions and also has the capacity to store soil chemical and physical properties.

Positional Accuracy:Current point location data is collected via 3D GPS. Historical points with no spatial coordinates has been located from various sources. These include aerial photography, topographic map sheets (50K, 100K or 250K), including working copies of these map sheets used for survey purposes.

Current positional accuracy is +/- 20 metres to +/-50 metres.
Pre GPS positional accuracy is variable generally +/-100 metres to +/-300 metres.

Attribute Accuracy:The accuracy of the attribute information is considered to be good. Information has gemerally been collected to national standards at the time of capture.

Logical Consistency:Not Applicable.

Completeness:STATUS: Ongoing (Historical data is continually being located and new data loaded on the Soil and Land Database (SALInfo)). Considerable effort is currently being made to capture all soil site locations and capture historical data.
