Dataset: GEODATA TOPO 10M 2002



This dataset and its metadata statement were supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and are presented here as originally supplied.

GEODATA TOPO 10M 2002 provides a fundamental basis layer of geographic information on which you can build a wide range of applications. This data has been derived primarily from GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 1 and contains the following features: State borders, roads, railways, populated places, rivers and lakes, coastline and islands, bathymetric and land contours, and spot locations.

Dataset History

The key source for production of the Builtup Areas, Drainage, Framework, Localities, Rail Transport, Road Transport and Waterbodies layers was the GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 1 product. Some revision of the Builtup Areas, Road Transport, Rail Transport and Waterbodies layers was carried out using the latest available satelite imagery. The primary source for the Spot Heights, Contours and Offshore layers was the GEODATA TOPO 10M Version 1 product. A further element to the production of GEODATA TOPO 10M 2002 has been the datum shift from the Australian Geodetic Datum 1966 (AGD66) to the Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94).
