Australia, Register of the National Estate (RNE) - Spatial Database (RNESDB) Internal


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

These data provide locational and attribute information for places on the Register of the National Estate (RNE) as determined by the Australian Government Department of the Environment, Heritage Division. RNE polygons, points & arcs with attribute information describing the place name, class (indigenous, natural, historic), 'RRNo' (a unique identifier used to link to the textual, spatial and photographic databases) and status. Places on the 'Interim Register of the National Estate' are included in these data. These are attributed as "Interim" in the status field. The "Identified" status indicates that a place has been accepted onto the register, but the assessment was performed by state government bodies. CAUTION: Places subject to confidentiality agreements (or otherwise subject to s24c of the Australian Heritage Commission Act 1975) ARE included in these data. Spatial data for places (mostly historic) in cities, is currently being derived using urban cadastral data. These sites are being incorporated into each new release, as they become available.

This dataset has been provided to the BA Programme for use within the programme only. Current data are available from http://www.environment.gov.au/fed/catalog/main/home.page.

Dataset History

The original spatial data were digitised by Australian Surveying and Land Information Group (AUSLIG) from stable-base overlays produced by the Australian Heritage Commission since 1986. Since 1999, data entry and attribution has been undertaken by Australian Government Department of the Environment staff. Data are captured using topographic and cadastral data at map scales of up to 1:250,000 depending on the size and/or detail of the property. The majority of the source datasets are maintained and processed as ArcView shapefiles in a geographic projection in Datum AGD66. The final dataset described by this metadata has been transformed to the WGS84 datum - compliant with the Geocentric Datum of Australia (GDA).

"ElementID" was added to the dataset by ERIN to create a unique identifier for each spatial feature for use in the Bioregional Assessments Programme.
