BA SYD selected GA TOPO 250K data plus added map features


This dataset is derived from GA TOPO 250K Series 3 features clipped to the BA_SYD and environs extent for the purpose of providing geographic context in BA_SYD report map images. 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.

Selected features currently include:







additional features may be included as required (relevant feature classes asterisked).

Currently the only addition has been to PlaceNames with the addition of Census Spring (see Lineage).


providing geographic context in BA_SYD report map images.

Dataset History

A rectangular mask polygon feature was manually drawn around the BA_SYD (ie NSB+SSB) boundary extending approximately 100km beyond the BA_SYD extent. This mask is included in the dataset (SYD_clip).

Selected features from the national GEODATA TOPO 250K series 3 were overlaid with the mask and intersecting features extracted.

Extracted feature classes have the same names as the source features.

The additional feature of "Census Spring" was added to place names. It's approximate location was sourced from
