Title: Eastern Lachlan Orogen 3D VRML Model 2007


Custodian: Geoscience Australia

Jurisdiction: Australia



The Australian Geodynamics Cooperative Research (AGCRC) Project was designed to shed light on the crustal architecture of different belts of Ordovician volcanics, volcaniclastics and intrusives that form part of the Macquarie Arc. This arc was disrupted during Silurian and Devonian extension and by later contraction. The work was also designed to contribute to the understanding of the geodynamic setting of some Lachlan Orogen mineral systems. North-south and east-west seismic reflection data were acquired across the Molong volcanic belt north and south of Orange; and east-west seismic lines were acquired across the Junee-Narromine volcanic belt south of Lake Cowal, and several kilometres north of the Gidginbung deposit.

Positional accuracy:

Positional accuracy varies with data sources and according to map scale of compilation, i.e. for legacy data compiled at 1:250 000 scale, positional accuracy is generally limited to around 250 metres. In most instances, it is impossible to predict positional accuracy with confidence.

Attribute accuracy:

Every effort has been made to ensure that features are attributed so that they are fit-for-use, and not necessarily compliant with any data dictionary version such as that constructed by Geoscience Australia. Geological themes have generally been constructed to comply with a version of the GA data dictionary.

Logical Consistency:

The test applied to consistency is fit-for-use, not necessarily compliant with a given standard. Every effort has been made to ensure that themes and layers within themes have been constructed to be logically consistent by following process standards.
