Dataset: Asset database for the Cooper subregion on 12 May 2016



The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme. This dataset was derived from multiple datasets. You can find a link to the parent datasets in the Lineage Field in this metadata statement. The History Field in this metadata statement describes how this dataset was derived.

The asset database for Cooper subregion (v4) supersedes previous version (v3) of the Cooper Asset database (Asset database for the Cooper subregion on 27 August 2015, GUID: 0b122b2b-e5fe-4166-93d1-3b94fc440c82). It contains the Asset database (COO_asset_database_20160512.mdb), a Geodatabase version for GIS mapping purposes (COO_asset_database_GISOnly_20160512.gdb), the draft Water Dependent Asset Register spreadsheet (BA-LEB-COO-130-WaterDependentAssetRegister-AssetList-v20160512.xlsx), a data dictionary (COO_asset_database_doc_20160512.doc), a folder (Indigenous_doc) containing documentation associated with Indigenous water asset project and a folder (NRM_DOC) containing documentation associated with the Water Asset Information Tool (WAIT) process as outlined

The Asset database is registered to the BA repository as an ESRI personal goedatabase (.mdb - doubling as a MS Access database) that can store, query, and manage non-spatial data while the spatial data is in a separate file geodatabase joined by AID/ElementID.

Under the BA program, a spatial assets database is developed for each defined bioregional assessment project. The spatial elements that underpin the identification of water dependent assets are identified in the first instance by regional NRM organisations (via the WAIT tool) and supplemented with additional elements from national and state/territory government datasets. A report on the WAIT process for the Cooper is included in the zip file as part of this dataset.

Elements are initially included in the preliminary assets database if they are partly or wholly within the subregion's preliminary assessment extent (Materiality Test 1, M1). Elements are then grouped into assets which are evaluated by project teams to determine whether they meet the second Materiality Test (M2). Assets meeting both Materiality Tests comprise the water dependent asset list. Descriptions of the assets identified in the Cooper subregion are found in the "AssetList" table of the database.

Assets are the spatial features used by project teams to model scenarios under the BA program. Detailed attribution does not exist at the asset level. Asset attribution includes only the core set of BA-derived attributes reflecting the BA classification hierarchy, as described in Appendix A of " COO_asset_database_doc_20160512.doc ", located in this file.

Some of the source data used in the compilation of this dataset is restricted.

Dataset History

Version ID Date Notes

1.0 27/03/2015 Initial database

2.0 14/08/2015 "(1) Updated the database for M2 test results provided from COO assessment team and created the draft BA-LEB-COO-130-WaterDependentAssetRegister-AssetList-V20150814.xlsx

(2) updated the group, subgroup, class and depth for (up to) 2 NRM WAIT assets to cooperate the feedback to OWS from relevant SA NRM regional office (whose staff missed the asset workshop). The AIDs and names of those assets are listed in table LUT_changed_asset_class_20150814 in COO_asset_database_20150814.mdb

(3) As a result of (2), added one new asset separated from one existing asset. This asset and its parent are listed in table LUT_ADD_1_asste_20150814 in COO_asset_database_20150814.mdb. The M2 test result for this asset is inherited from its parent in this version

(5) Added Appendix C in COO_asset_database_doc_201500814.doc is about total elements/assets in current Group and subgroup

(6)Added Four SQL queries (Find_All_Used_Assets, Find_All_WD_Assets, Find_Amount_Asset_in_Class and Find_Amount_Elements_in_Class) in COO_asset_database_20150814.mdb.mdb for total assets and total numbers

(7)The databases, especially spatial database (COO_asset_database_20150814Only.gdb), were changed such as duplicated attribute fields in spatial data were removed and only ID field is kept. The user needs to join the Table Assetlist or Elementlist to the relevant spatial data"

3.0 27/08/2015 M2_Reason in the Assetlist table and DecisionBrief in the AssetDecisions table have been updated with short descriptions (<255 characters) provided by project team 21/8, and the draft "water-dependent asset register and asset list" (BA-LEB-COO-130-WaterDependentAssetRegister-AssetList-V20150827) also updated accordingly. No changes to asset numbers.

4.0 12/05/2016 "Total number of registered water assets was increased by 26(1+25) due to:

(a) The one asset changed M2 test to "Yes" from the review done by Ecologist group. The original data is included the database as the table tbl_COO _Species_TEC_decisions_reveiw_23112015

(b) 53 indigenous water assets from OWS were added ( but only 25 assets meet the criteria of the registration and are registered) . The data and documents from OWS are included in subdirectory Indigenous_doc

(c)The draft new Water Dependent Asset Register file (BA-LEB-COO-130-WaterDependentAssetRegister-AssetList-v20160512.xlsx) was created.
