The dataset was compiled by the Geological and Bioregional Assessment Program from source data referenced within the dataset and/or metadata. The Beetaloo GBA region non-development disturbance dataset contains all of the non-linear (see additional datasets listed below for linear features), ecological disturbances from existing publicly available datasets (see input dataset listed below). The dataset has been created for the purpose of quantifying baseline ecological disturbances for assessment of the exploration impact analysis.

The Lineage field lists the parents of this dataset. Points and line features were selected from various input layers and were checked against imagery in ArcMap 10.5 (ESRI basemap / Digital Globe* (Jan 2018) and Bing** (various 2015 to 2019)) to determine if they should be included and if a buffer should be added (e.g. a wind pump is a point feature, but the area around it has also been cleared (disturbed) and so the point was buffered to better represent the disturbance). See the Excel file in the dataset for details. *DigitalGlobe © 2019 CNES Distribution Airbus DS **Bing Maps Aerial © 2019 Microsoft Corporation.
