Dataset: Topography - State Refence Map layers - PED



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

Dataset contains framework layers compiled for representation on state reference map, scale 1:1.5 million. Line and polygon features only. Road, rail, waterbody and watercourse themes included. State coastline not included.


Can be used as a framework layer for whole of state mapping or for a generalised framework for regional mapping. Not suitable for analysis.

Dataset History

Information was compiled and digitised in generalised form from 1:250 000 scale hard copy maps. The individual CAD files were combined into seamless form and converted to Lambert Conformal Conic projection, standard parallels 29 degrees and 35 degrees S, central meridian 135 degrees E. Subsequently the information was converted to GIS format and re-projected to the state standard LCC projection.
