Dataset: Galilee groundwater data October 2016 v3



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

This dataset is a subset of the QLD bore data (c4110cd3-5053-4830-8ad1-533ecd2e67c9) for the Galilee Assesment extent with Assets and drawdown data attached.

Dataset History

Data from the following source datasheets within the QLD groundwater database were used: Registrations, Casing, Aquifer, Stratigraphy, Pump test and water levels.

Relevant data was extracted from these source datasheets and compiled in new tab called "SWL Interp". Then the hydrostratigraphic interpretation from the original data compilation was incorporated into the "SWL interp" datasheet in the column called BA "strat". These interpretations are tagged in the "strat interp source" column as "July14 SWL" . For completeness the original interpretation is included in the datasheet called "July14SWL"

The focus of these updated interpretation were bores that maybe screened in aquifers in the Galilee Basin. Bores that were interpreted utilising the updated data are tagged in the "strat interp source" column as "Mar17 interp".

This dataset was then clipped to the Assessment extent (see lineage) and some bores to the east added in (to use for Figure 79, GAL Group 3-4).

A spatial join (250m) was done with the points from the Assets database to append information about the assets into the dataset and columns with null fields removed.

This dataset was then used to append values (using extract values to points) from the drawdown grids (Clematis, BCB and Alluvium) for the 5th, 50th and 95th percentile of drawdown in the model layers.

The spreadsheet QLDGALBoresNotInAssets.xlsx is an extract of the dataset to produce bores that aren't in the asset list.
