Abstract

The Pine Creek GIS package has been prepared jointly by AGSO and the Northern Territory Survey for release in both digital and hard copy (atlas) formats. Based on the 1:500 000 geological map of the Pine Creek Geosyncline (2nd edition) published by BMR in 1984, the GIS has been supplemented where possible by recently acquired data from mapping in the Litchfield, Katherine, and South Alligator areas. The aim of this project was to bring together almost 45 years of regional mapping projects by both organisations by integrating existing hard copy geological maps and other relevant geoscientific data into a digital Metallogenic Geographic Information System (GIS).

Lineage

The project was originally developed in ARC/INFO Version 6. In this data set, all data have single precision geographic coordinates (decimal longitude and latitude). The Arc/Info coverages have the following characterisics; Feature attribute tables are fully expanded instead of using related lookup tables.The lookup tables will also be provided for polygon coverages. Primary data sets have two descriptor (INFO) files containing information about the data (meta-data) in items conforming to the FINDAR questionnaire from NRIC. For more information the structure of these data sets follows closely that described in Appendix A of BMR Record 1992/63, Results from GIS Development Contract, by Robyn Gallagher. Because this GIS was developed for investigating metallogeny on a regional (rather than detailed) scale the base map was digitised at 1:500 000 scale from the original colour separate reproduction material (repromat) used in making the final colour printing plates. Some additional data was imported from the Anson 1:100 000.
