Data Quality

Lineage:The areas were selected from the NT cadastre based on current Water Resources Division project areas.
Refer to Cadastre Metadata record:

25/05/2021 - Strata areas amended by Water Resources Hydrogeologist (Steven Tickell)

Positional Accuracy:Based on selected parcels using cadastre. Pastoral boundaries are +/- 1000 m

Attribute Accuracy:NA

Logical Consistency:NT Cadastre parcels are polygons or groups of polygons and leaves road corridors as voids. Apart from road corridors there should be no voids or overlaps between parcels. In some cases there are overlying forms of tenure or secondary interests which have been created in another layer and overlaid on the base cadastre.
