Dataset: HUN AssetList Database v1p2 20150128



The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from multiple source datasets. The source datasets are 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 contains the spatial and non-spatial (attribute) components of the Hunter subregion Asset List as an .mdb file, which is readable as an MS Access database or as an ESRI Personal Geodatabase.

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 Hunter 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 Hunter 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 "AnR_database_HUN_v1p2_20150128.doc", located in the zip file as part of this dataset.

The "Element_to_Asset" table contains the relationships and identifies the elements that were grouped to create each asset.

Detailed information describing the database structure and content can be found in the document "AnR_database_HUN_v1p2_20150128.doc" located in the zip file.

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


The Asset List Database was developed to identify water dependent assets located within the Hunter subregion.
