Dataset History

Data supplied as an excel spreadsheet by the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines in 2008. Point shapefile was derived from the original spreadsheet based on coordinate attributes.

Queensland groundwater monitoring data, both water level and water quality, is stored within the Groundwater Database (GWDB) system. The new system is based on web technology and is available through the department's intranet. Allocation and use data is obtained through the Water Entitlements Registration Database (WERD) which is an electronic database for water license details. Both databases are managed locally at district level, with respect to the collection and entering of water monitoring, allocation and use data; and are accessed statewide.
