Abstract

The product is a digital representation of the boundaries and names of Surface Water Management Areas defined by State and Territory water management agencies for use in national water resources reporting. Surface Water Management Areas generally correspond to Australia`s River Basin boundaries, however in some States and Territories the Areas are a sub-set or a major part of Australia`s River Basins. The dataset is produced by the National Land and Water Resources Audit (NLWRA) and distributed by Geoscience Australia. The data is suitable for GIS applications. Free online. Available in ArcInfo Export, ArcView Shapefile and MapInfo mid/mif. Product Specifications Coverage: Australia Currency: November 2000 Coordinates: Geographical Datum: GDA94 Format: ArcInfo Export, ArcView Shapefile and MapInfo mid/mif Medium: Free online and CD-ROM (fee applies)

Lineage

Australia's SWMA boundaries were initially defined from Geoscience Australia's Australia's River Basins 1997 data. All States and Territories, except for Tasmania and Western Australia, split some of the basins into smaller areas. The details of these are described in detail in ASWMA 2000's Product User Guide.
