Dataset: GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3, File Geodatabase format (.gdb)



This dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from the GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 dataset (GUID: a0650f18-518a-4b99-a553-44f82f28bb5f). The source dataset is 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 copy of the original Geodata Topo 250k Series 3 data, converted from Personal (Microsoft Access) Databases, to ESRI File Geodatabases. This was done to ensure .mdb lock files would not restrict map makers from using the topographic data in their cartographic products. The data and folders are structured the same as the original dataset.

Dataset History

A new file geodatabase schema was created in the same structure as the original .mdb data (including database and feature dataset names and projections). Feature Classes were then copied from the .mdb format to the .gdb format, using ArcCatalog 10.0.
