Asset database for the Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine subregion on 16 June 2015


The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from multiple source datasets. The source datasets are identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement. The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.

The Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine Asset database v2 supersedes the previous version of the Asset database, "Asset database for the Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine subregion on 09 June 2015", GUID: 01c1f112-3629-4527-a576-f84dbcda493e.

v2 20150609 incorporates the results of the water dependency test (M2), and corrected "subgroup" attributes for five Assets (AIDs 4741, 4742, 4743, 4745, 4747). Flags have also been updated from "On/Off" values to "Yes/No" values.

The asset database is registered to the BA repository as an ESRI personal goedatabase (.mdb - doubling as a MS Access database) that can store, query, and manage non-spatial data. The spatial data is contained in a separate file geodatabase. the two databases can be joined using the AID and/or ElementID as required.

Some of the source data used in the compilation of this dataset is restricted.

Dataset History

Under the BA program, a spatial assets database is developed for each defined bioregional assessment project. The spatial elements that underpin the identification of water dependent assets are identified in the first instance by regional NRM organisations (via the WAIT tool) and supplemented with additional elements from national and state/territory government datasets. All reports received associated with the WAIT process for MBC are included in the zip file as part of this dataset.

Elements are initially included in the preliminary assets database if they are partly or wholly within the subregion's preliminary assessment extent (Materiality Test 1, M1). Elements are then grouped into assets which are evaluated by project teams to determine whether they meet the second Materiality Test (M2). Assets meeting both Materiality Tests comprise the water dependent asset list. Descriptions of the assets identified in the Clarence-Morton subregion are found in the "AssetList" table of the database. In this version of the database M1 and M2 have both been assessed.

Assets are the spatial features used by project teams to model scenarios under the BA program. Detailed attribution does not exist at the asset level. Asset attribution includes only the core set of BA-derived attributes reflecting the BA classification hierarchy, as described in Appendix A of "MBC_asset_database_doc_20150616.doc", located in the zip file as part of this dataset. The "Element_to_Asset" table contains the relationships and identifies the elements that were grouped to create each asset. Detailed information describing the database structure and content can be found in the document "MBC_asset_database_doc_20150616.doc".


v1 9/10/2014 Initial database.

v1.2 25/02/2015 Initial database with additional elements and assets added following community consultation.

v2 9/06/2015 "Decisions on water dependency from project team incorporated into database.

                             Incorrect ""subgroup"" values updated from ""Surface water management zone or area (surface area)"" to ""Groundwater management zone or area (surface area)" to correct an error identified for 5 assets from the NAMOI database (AIDs: 4741, 4742, 4743, 4745, 4747).

Flags updated from ""On/Off"" to ""Yes/No"".

v3 16/06/2015 Update to AID 11387 following a revised decision regarding water dependency (M2).
