Title: The Land Resources of a Proposed Horticultural Development Area, Mt Ooraminna Locality, Deep Well Station.

Citation Date:1989-01-01

Custodian:Department of Environment, Parks and Water Security



The investigation aims were to provide reconnaissance information about soils for the potential development of a horticultural project. The report provides details for 10 land units within the study area including descriptions for landform, surface geology, soils, vegetation and general capability for horticultural use.

The study area covers 80 km2 south of the Ooraminna Range and is located within Deep Well Station, NT Por. 415 approximately 50 km south of Alice Springs township. The original field survey was undertaken in 1997 at a mapping scale of 1:20,000.

Report, scanned map and legend. Spatial data for land unit polygons is not available over this survey area.

Data Quality

Lineage:Original map unit boundaries delineated from aerial photographs and stereoscope interpretation. Map units transferred to topographic map sheets via a mapograph. Original map is hardcopy only. No spatial data is available for this survey.

An approximate boundary location for the study area was defined in 2019 using ESRI software, ArcGIS.

Positional Accuracy:POLYGON DATA - Map unit boundaries transferred from aerial photographs to topographic maps, using the best available topographic mapping at the time (generally 1:100 000) via a mapograph. Level of accuracy depends on the number of control points on individual aerial photographs. Control points include creek lines, cadastre and other topographic features. Depending on the nature of the landscape (the number of control points), positional accuracy may vary. Positional accuracy generally considered moderate to high.

POINT DATA - Survey teams navigated during field operations with topographic maps, aerial photographs and prismatic compass. Point source locations marked on aerial photography in the field. Positional accuracy considered within 300m but generally below 200m depending on the terrain. Site coordinates derived by transferring site locations from aerial photographs to topographic maps and coordinates calculated.

Attribute Accuracy:The attribute information conforms to the 'Australian Soil and Land Survey Field Handbook' at time of capture.
Attributes assigned according to the dominant feature. For example, where ten sites have been grouped to describe a particular map unit and two different soils described from these sites then the dominant soil is chosen.

Logical Consistency:Report, map and legend only. Spatial data for land unit polygons is not available over this survey area.
