Description

Abstract:

This polygon spatial dataset displays drainage bodies over the Northern Territory including a 70 km buffer beyond the border.
The drainage bodies are displayed in two separate datasets; HydroArea and Waterbody.
The data was sourced from the Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (AHGF Geofabric) V3.2 via the Commonwealth of Australia (Bureau of Meteorology).

AHGFFTypeAlias: Feature Type
HydroArea - Feature types 25, 26, 27
Waterbody - Feature types 54, 56, 57, 58, 59
25Reservoir: A body of water collected and stored behind a constructed barrier for some specific use (with the exception of Flood Irrigation Storage).
26Lake: A naturally occurring body of mainly static water surrounded by land.
27Swamp: Land which is so saturated with water that it is not suitable for agricultural or pastoral use and presents a barrier to free passage.
54Watercourse Area: Low lying land usually adjacent to lakes or watercourses, which is regularly covered with flood water for short periods.
56Flat: Land which is so saturated with water that it is not suitable for agricultural or pastoral use and presents a barrier to free passage or Low lying land usually adjacent to lakes or watercourses, which is regularly covered with flood water for short periods.
57Pondage Area: Shallow beds, usually segmented by constructed walls, for the use of aquaculture or a flat area, usually segmented, used for the commercial production of salt by evaporation and shallow beds, usually segmented by constructed walls, for the treatment of sewage or other wastes.
58Rapid Area: An area of broken, fast flowing water in a watercourse, where the slope of the bed increases (but without a prominent break of slope which might result in a waterfall), or where a gently dipping bar of harder rock outcrops.
59Foreshore Flat: That part of the seabed or estuarine areas, between mean high water and the line of lowest astronomical tide.
Name_TCAlias: Name (Title Case)
The original field, NAME, was converted from CAPITAL LETTERS to Title Case.
