Description

Abstract:

This spatial dataset, surveyed at a scale of 1 : 50 000, provides polygon information on the map unit boundaries of Stylo Station, south of Mataranka township, describing soils over the property.

CAUTION: This survey was not undertaken according to current departmental protocols. Soil survey site data and mapping were collected for reconnaissance purposes only, consisting mainly of brief field notes and limited soil profile morphology descriptions. If a high level of confidence is required in relation to the soils at a particular site or area then further investigations should be undertaken by a suitably qualified professional.

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 maps were hardcopy only. With the advent of geographic information systems polygons were digitised by rectifying the original hard copy maps.
Map unit boundaries derived using aerial photography and digital satellite imagery, geological and topographic data. Field data (site information) described and classified according to national standards at the time of capture.
Map unit polygons collected via geographic information system (ESRI ArcGIS software)

Positional Accuracy: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.

POLYGON DATA
Map unit boundaries digitised on screen directly from digital rectified aerial photographs. 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 high to very high.

POINT DATA
Site point coordinates derived from a geographic positioning system with general accuracy of within 10-50m.

Attribute Accuracy: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:GIS editing tools were used to rectify all overshoots and undershoots in line work. Polygon topology rules applied are; must not overlap, must not have gaps and each polygon has only one label.

Completeness:Complete
