Data quality


Permits - This tenement information is derived from ENCOM Technologies in Melbourne and is exported from a proprietry software application called GPINFO. This exported file is imported into Petroseis and from this an Arcview shapefile is exported. The shapefile attributes only contain the permit name.

Positional accuracy:

Permits - Due to the importance of these polygons and the accuracy that is 'excepted' by the petroleum industry the nominal scale is at 1:100000.

Being that this data came from outside AGSO, we can only assume that no analysis of the positional accuracy of any of the vector features has been undertaken, however due to the accuracy of the interpretation it can be considered that all vector features are within 1 km of there true position.

Attribute accuracy:

No attribute information available

Logical Consistency:

All vector data has been visually checked for extraneous points and value added data.

Polygons have been checked for closure and dangles.


All vector data and details are complete and verified.
