This dataset was supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and is presented here as originally supplied. Metadata was not provided and has been compiled by the Bioregional Assessment Programme based on the known details at the time of acquisition.

Hand digitisation of coal-bearing Permian units existing within the Galilee Basin as published by Scott SG, Beeston JW, Carr AF (1995) Galilee Basin. In: Ward CR, Harrington HJ, Mallett CW and Beeston JW (eds) Geology of Australian Coal Basins. Geological Society of Australia - Coal Geology Group. 1: 341-353. (PDF within dataset folder).

Dataset History

Figures 9, 10, 13 and 14 from the 'Geology of Australian Coal Basins', 'Galilee Basin' chapter (Scott et al, 1995 - attached) were georeferenced and digitised using ESRI ArcMap version 10.0. The polygons were then clipped to the current Galilee Basin boundary.
