Dataset History

Polygons from source WSA dataset that intersected with the Hunter bioregion boundary were selected and exported to shapefile. This output was also dissolved on the "WATER_SOUR" and "in_WSP" fields. Additonal fields )"HUN" and "Map_label" were added to the dissolved data to facilitate presentation in report maps.
