Geoscience Australia GEODATA TOPO series - 1:1 Million to 1:10 Million scale

Abstract

This dataset and its metadata statement were supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and are presented here as originally supplied.

This dataset contains 4 different scale GEODATA TOPO series, Geoscience Australia topographic datasets. 1M, 2.5M, 5M and 10M with age ranges from 2001 to 2004.

1:1 Million - Global Map Australia 1M 2001 is a digital dataset covering the Australian landmass and island territories, at a 1:1 million scale. Product Specifications -Themes: It consists of eight layers of information: Vector layers - administrative boundaries, drainage, transportation and population centres Raster layers - elevation, vegetation, land use and land cover -Coverage: Australia -Currency: Variable, based on GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 1 -Coordinates: Geographical -Datum: GDA94, AHD -Medium: Free online -Format: -Vector: ArcInfo Export, ESRI Shapefile, MapInfo mid/mif and Vector Product Format (VPF) -Raster: Band Interleaved by Line (BIL)

1:2.5 Million - GEODATA TOPO 2.5M 2003 is a national seamless data product aimed at regional or national applications. It is a vector representation of the Australian landscape as represented on the Geoscience Australia 2.5 million general reference map and is suitable for GIS applications. The product consists of the following layers: built-up areas; contours; drainage; framework; localities; offshore; rail transport; road transport; sand ridges; Spot heights; and waterbodies. It is a vector representation of the Australian landscape as represented on the Geoscience Australia 1:2.5 million scale general reference maps. This data supersedes the TOPO 2.5M 1998 product through the following characteristics: developed according to GEODATA specifications derived from GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 2 data where available. Product Specifications Themes: GEODATA TOPO 2.5M 2003 consists of eleven layers: built-up areas; contours; drainage; framework; localities; offshore; rail transport; road transport; sand ridges; spot heights; and waterbodies Coverage: Australia Currency: 2003 Coordinates: Geographical Datum: GDA94, AHD Format: ArcInfo Export, ArcView Shapefile and MapInfo mid/mif Medium: Free online - Available in ArcInfo Export, ArcView Shapefile and MapInfo mid/mif

1:5 Million - GEODATA TOPO 5M 2004 is a national seamless data product aimed at regional or national applications. It is a vector representation of the Australian landscape as represented on the Geoscience Australia 5 million general reference map and is suitable for GIS applications. Offshore and sand ridge layers were sourced from scanning of the original 1:5 million map production material. The remaining nine layers were derived from the GEODATA TOPO 2.5M 2003 dataset. Free online. Available in ArcInfo Export, ArcView Shapefile and MapInfo mid/mif. Product Specifications: Themes: consists of eleven layers: built-up areas; contours; drainage; framework; localities; offshore; rail transport; road transport; sand ridges, spot heights and waterbodies Coverage: Australia Currency: 2004 Coordinates: Geographical Datum: GDA94, AHD Format: ArcInfo Export, ArcView Shapefile and MapInfo mid/mif Medium: Free online

1:10 Million - The GEODATA TOPO 10M 2002 version of this product has been completely revised, including the source information. The data is derived primarily from GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 1 data. In October 2003, the data was released in double precision coordinates. It provides a fundamental base layer of geographic information on which you can build a wide range of applications and is particularly suited to State-wide and national applications. The data consists of ten layers: built-up areas, contours, drainage, Spot heights, framework, localities, offshore, rail transport, road transport, and waterbodies.

Dataset History

1:1Million - Vector data was produced by generalising Geoscience Australia's GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 1 data and updated using Series 2 data where available in January 2001. Raster data was sourced from USGS and updated using GEODATA 9 Second DEM Series 2, 1:5 million, Vegetation - Present (1988) and National Land and Water Resources data. However, updates have not been subjected to thorough vetting. A more detailed land use classification for Australia is available at www.nlwra.gov.au.

1:2.5Million - Data for the Contours, Offshore, and Sand ridge layers was captured from 1:2.5 million scale mapping by scanning stable base photographic film positives of the original map production material. The key source material for Built-up areas, Drainage, Spot heights, Framework, Localities, Rail transport, Road transport and Waterbodies layers was GEODATA TOPO 2.5M 2003

1:5Million - Offshore and Sand Ridge layers have been derived from 1:5M scale mapping by scanning stable base photographic film positives of the various layers of the original map production material. The remaining layers were sourced from the GEODATA TOPO 2.5M 2003 product.

1:10Million - The key source for production of the Builtup Areas, Drainage, Framework, Localities, Rail Transport, Road Transport and Waterbodies layers was the GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 1 product. Some revision of the Builtup Areas, Road Transport, Rail Transport and Waterbodies layers was carried out using the latest available satelite imagery. The primary source for the Spot Heights, Contours and Offshore layers was the GEODATA TOPO 10M Version 1 product. A further element to the production of GEODATA TOPO 10M 2002 has been the datum shift from the Australian Geodetic Datum 1966 (AGD66) to the Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94).
