Dataset History

Catchment area for the main rivers and their main tributaries within the Hunter subregion. Areas were reported in a table in the context statement and were calculated from the shapefile:

Hunter_Major_Tributaries_Projected.shp

The shapefile was derived for the Hunter catchments shapefile by aggregating selected catchments (listed below) and then projected according to the following information.
