Data Quality

Lineage: Site locations of Audit Reports and Audit Statements have been provided by the Site Auditor within the Report/Statement. Site locations of Pollution Abatement Notices have been identified by NTEPA staff using desktop spatial software such as Google Earth and NR Maps combined with NT Aerial Photography and Google Earth imagery.

The data is stored within an department Oracle database using geographic coordinate system with datum GDA94. The data is regularly updated by NTEPA staff.

Positional Accuracy: Each site is represented by a point location at the approximate centre of the Audited/Pollution Abatement Notice area.

Attribute Accuracy: Each site is described using the attributes noted in the Data Dictionary in this Metadata record.

Logical Consistency:

Completeness: This dataset is continuously updated.
