Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Area - boundary (WTMA)

This dataset contains polygon features that represent the zoning classification of lands within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, according to the Wet Tropics Management Plan 1998.

This dataset is a working depiction only. For legal confirmation, refer to signed maps held at WTMA. http://www.wettropics.gov.au/boundary-maps

The World Heritage Area boundary is legally defined by Wet Tropics Management Authority (WTMA) WTQ1 SH1-32 series. (Note: Along the coastline, it shall be low water mark). These maps should be referred to for any legal purposes. This dataset is designed to show the intent of these plans relevant to the current Digital Cadastral Data Base (DCDB). Most lines are derived from DCDB, and other lines derived from 1:50,000 topographical data and other sources.

Accuracy Lines derived from the DCDB were within 1m of the DCDB as at 29/11/2008. Lines that are not derived from the DCDB are approximate only. They were derived from topographic mapping originally, then adjusted to the DCDB in 2002, and then further adjusted as the DCDB was updated since then.
