Data Quality

Lineage:Site locations were provided by the licence applicant. As part of the application process, the location coordinates have been verified by NTEPA staff using desktop imagery software such as Google Earth or NT Aerial Photography.
The data has been compiled to an ESRI file geodatabase format for storage in department Oracle database using geographic coordinates in Datum GDA94.

Positional Accuracy:Some coordinate locations have not been verified on site.
The coordinate location noted in the licence is approximate to +/- 50 metres and falls within the land parcel noted in the licence. (if applicable)

Attribute Accuracy:Each site is described using the attributes noted in the Data Dictionary in this Metadata record.
Cadastre information (attribute Laiskey) is assigned where applicable and relates to time of submission of planning applications.

The attribute naming format uses 10 characters with no spaces to be suitable for an ESRI shapefile format. An alias attribute name is applied to an ESRI file geo-database format and data display in NR Maps.

Logical Consistency:

Completeness:The dataset is continually updated.
