Description

Abstract:

This is the positional data of AGSO's offshore seismic surveys that fall into the area of the project. The line locations for these seismic surveys are from AGSO's Mardat Database. The surveys have been 'clipped' to the project polygon.

There are 9 surveys in the one file, they are:

100r97, 116, 119, 130, 163VTT, 165VTT, 165YST, 175BBHR and 98r

Each survey has a number of lines attached to them.

There is only one vector file:

agso_seismic.shp - Line data

Data quality

Lineage:

This data is recorded aboard various survey ships mostly using GPS, though sometimes Doppler positioning or Dead Reckoning. It was then processed in house using AGSO software and Intrepid software, and then stored in UKOOA format. This data was loaded into an ARCVIEW database and then converted to a shape file.

Positional accuracy:

No analysis of the positional accuracy of features has been undertaken however intuitively it is considered that 95% of all features are within 100 metres of their true position. It should be noted that positional accuracy varies greatly depending on the date of the survey. Some older survey data may not meet the above accuracy.

Attribute accuracy:

No analysis of the attribute accuracy of features has been undertaken however intuitively it is considered that attributes on all features are correct, given the objective nature of the fields and the systematic conversion method from the Mardat database.

Logical Consistency:

All lines were visually checked and there were no visible artefacts. There are no unnecessary nodes at line intersections. Checks have been carried out that lines are not duplicated, that all lines are real features and all lines are labelled.

Completeness:

All vector data and details are complete and verified.
