Lineage

Initial data compiled in 1995/96 for two 1:500 000 sheet areas - Broken Hill (NSW) and Curnamona Province (SA).For the Broken Hill sheet area the data were captured from interpreted tracings made from 1:80 000 RC9 aerial photographs, Landsat TM imagery, existing NSW Department of Mineral Resources 1:250 000 geological maps and field mapping data onto topographic bases at 1:250 000 derived from AUSLIG 1:250 000 topo sheets.This compilation sheet was then scanned on an Optronics 5040 Scanner at a resolution of 25 microns. Resultant raster file warped to fit digital graticule generated using Intergraph CAM software. Affine-1 warp was used, with the four corners of the sheet forming tie points. The warped raster file was then vectorised and cleaned using Abakos Provec and Scanfix software.Intergraph Microstation vector data were plotted and visually checked prior to conversion to GIS format. No attribution was attatched to the Microstation data. Microstation vector data were translated to ESRI Arc/Info coverage format using in-house scripts and ESRIs IGDSARC utility. Attribute fields were populated and coverages were built, checked and edited. Arc/Info coverages were then exported to double precision, uncompressed Arc Export format. These were converted to ArcView shape files and also MapInfo native format. The Curnamona Province sheet area data were captured from interpreted tracings made from 1:80 000 RC9 aerial photographs, Landsat TM imagery, existing SA Department of Mines and Energy 1:250 000 geological maps and field mapping data onto topographic bases at 1:250 000 derived from SA Department of Mines and Energy 1:250 000 geological maps. The remaining processing steps were as for Broken Hill sheet area. The 1998 revision comprised of updated boundary and attribute data plus a detailed extended look up table of data extracted from AGSOs RTMAP Oracle database.
