Abstract

GEODATA Coast 100K 2004 is a vector representation of the topographic features depicting Australia`s coastline, and State and Territory borders. Data are derived from the 1:100,000 scale National Topographic Map Series and contains: -Coastline features (as determined by Mean High Water) -Survey Monument Points (survey points used to define State/Territory borders) -State and Territory land borders -Island features (please note: Australian external territories are not shown). The coastline includes the main outline of the land and includes bays, the outer edge of mangroves and closes off narrow inlets and watercourses at or near their mouths. Features of the 2004 release include: -Change of datum to GDA94 -Provision of a national coverage in addition to State/Territory coverages; and Additional points on the SA/VIC border. NOTE: The use of survey data in GEODATA COAST 100K 2004 does not imply that data are suitable for any legal interpretation of State/Territory borders. Product Specifications: Coverage: Supplied as separate State and Territory layers, along with a complete national layer Currency: Varies and is based on reliability date of 1:100,000 scale map Coordinates: Geographical Datum: GDA94 Format: ArcInfo Export, ArcView Shapefile and Mapinfo mid/mif Medium: Free online

Lineage

The coastline component of the GEODATA COAST 100K 1992 product is primarily sourced from the 1:100 000 scale National Topographic Map Series produced by Geoscience Australia and the Royal Australian Survey Corps. Two 1:100 000 scale sheet areas over Brisbane were produced by the Queensland Government. Data covering Tasmania was derived from maps produced by Geoscience Australia and the Tasmanian Government. The coastline of Western Australia was captured by its survey agency and from from reproduction material supplied by Geoscience Australia. The positions of the State and Territory borders were mainly derived from survey coordinate data and the 1:100 000 scale topographic series. The coordinate data were supplied by various State and Territory survey agencies and Geoscience Australia. Where State borders follow natural features, data were captured from 1:100 000 scale mapping produced by Geoscience Australia or the Royal Australian Survey Corps. NOTE: The use of survey data in GEODATA COAST 100K 2004 does not imply that the data are suitable for any legal interpretation of State/Territory borders.
