Data quality


Created by the National Native Title Tribunal in 1994 and included in its spatial data maintenance program in 2003.

Positional accuracy:

0.1 m

Attribute accuracy:

Attributes are maintained continuously and should at all times reflect the primary detail as contained within the dataset.

Logical Consistency:

Technical or unintentional overlaps between boundaries may arise within this dataset. Technical overlaps include portions of boundaries of determinations that are intended to abut but which overlap. These overlaps may be caused by changes in source datasets used to create initial application boundaries or by differing interpretations of determination descriptions. Part of the maintenance program of this dataset is the identification and removal of such technical overlaps.
