Dataset: HUN AWRA-R calibration nodes v01



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

This dataset is a shapefile which is a subset for the Hunter subregion containing geographical locations and other characteristics (see below) of streamflow gauging stations. T

There are 3 files that have been extracted from the Hydstra database to aid in identifying sites in the Hunter subregion and the type of data collected from each on.

the 3 files are:

Site - lists all sites available in Hydstra from data providers. The data provider is listed in the #Station as _xxx. For example, sites in NSW are _77, QLD are _66.

Some sites do not have locational information and will not be able to be plotted.

Period - the period table lists all the variables that are recorded at each site and the period of record.

Variable - the variable table shows variable codes and names which can be linked to the period table.


Locations are used as pour points in order to define reach areas for river system modelling.

Dataset History

Subset of data for the Hunter subregion that was extracted from the Bureau of Meteorology's hydstra system and includes all gauges where data has been received from the lead water agency of each jurisdiction. The gauges shapefile for all bioregions was intersected with the Hunter subregion boundary to identify and extract gauges within the subregion.
