Except for the Arid Lands and Alinytjara Wilurara desktop editing included checking each land parcel against the most recent imagery available, using the imagery, land use descriptions in the DCDB and any other supporting evidence to assign a land use code. Field verification involved taking a digital copy of the data into the field, traversing all roads in the region and editing errors and adding new land uses.
