Description

Abstract:

This point spatial dataset provides the locations of water monitoring locations and the types of environmental data monitored at each site within the Northern Territory and includes: Tides, River Flow, River Height, Water Quality, Rainfall and Groundwater Monitoring. These data are sampled at intervals ranging from a few minutes, hourly and daily. These data may also be sampled at irregular intervals to better define sharply changing events if required.

Data Quality

Lineage: Before 1995 - site locations were collected using the property boundary, NT cadastre and/or 1:250,000 topographic maps. Site data is manually recorded using log book or site sheets. Data was manually entered into the water data management database.

From 1995 - site locations were collected using GPS,1:25,000 and 1:50,000 topographic maps. Site data is manually recorded using log book or site sheets and digital logger devices. Depending on the method of capture the information is either manually or electronically down-loaded directly into the water data management database.

Positional Accuracy: Before 1995 - the positional accuracy of sites is deemed low with a standard deviation of +/- 300 - 10 000 metres. A poor positional accuracy resulted from inconsistencies with the collection/storage of positional data and original mapping formats. Some of locational accuracy of these sites is being upgraded from poor to high with the use of GPS.

From 1995 - the positional accuracy of sites is deemed high with a standard deviation of +/-3 - 10 metres with the use of GPS.

Attribute Accuracy: The accuracy of the sites attribute information is considered high and conforms to the Department standard at time of capture.

Logical Consistency: NA

Completeness: Complete
