Approved boundaries of the bioregions and subregions (version 6) for defining the reporting regions for bioregional assessments of impacts of coal seam gas and coal mining development on water resources.

This is identical to Bioregional_Assessment_areas_v05 except for an upgraded version of the Arckaringa Subregion basin boundary.


Provides authoritative boundaries for defining bioregions and subregions to be reported on for the Bioregional Assessments and tabulation of Bioregion and subregion areas.

Dataset History

This dataset contains two spatial shapefiles: "ba_bioregion_alb_gda94_v06.shp" and "ba_subregion_alb_gda94_v06.shp".

The subregion shapefile is a copy of the previous version's (Bioregional Assessment Areas v05) bioregions, with the following change:

The Arckaringa boundary has been removed and a new boundary was added as per instructions so that the Arckaringa boundary aligned with the South Australian version.

The bioregion shapefile is a copy of the previous version's (Bioregional Assessment Areas v05) bioregions, with the following change:

The new Arckaringa subregion boundary was incorporated into the LEB bioregion boundary.
