Data Quality

Lineage:This dataset is updated from the 2006 version. Individual faults are updated by project geologists mapping at scales between 1:00000 and 1:500000. Line work is generalised to match geology at 1:2500000.

Positional Accuracy:Accuracy relevant to the scale of production 1:2500000, approximately 1000m.

Attribute Accuracy:The dataset adheres to the NTGS data dictionary rules of data structure and attribution. This has evolved from the previous faults and structures layer.

Logical Consistency:The dataset adheres to the NTGS data dictionary rules of data structure and attribution. This has evolved from the previous faults and structures layer.

Completeness:Complete. Subject to interpretation of project geologists. Well classified where possible.
