This data set is a grid of distance to the nearest ridge uphill from the
point. The interim 9 sec DEM is the basis of the calculations.The data set is
a product of Australian Soil Resources Information System (ASRIS) of the
National Land and Water Resources Audit (NLWRA). This digital map use
geographical coordinates referred to the World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84).
The raster data sets have a 0.0025 degree (9 second) cell size. The units are
metres (X 1000 to facilitate use of integer grids).The digital map data is
provided in geographical coordinates based on the World Geodetic System 1984
(WGS84) datum. This raster data set has a grid resolution of 0.001
degrees(approximately equivalent to 1.1 km).The data set is a product of the
