Abstract

The purpose of this document, Procedures for Describing Maritime Boundaries, is to provide unambiguous descriptions which give a consistent framework for government departments and agencies involved in the marine area. They provide: - policy makers and negotiators with a broad understanding of the geospatial issues which need to be considered when defining maritime boundaries - geospatial professionals with technical advice on how to describe and map maritime boundaries unambiguously - all stakeholders with legally defensible boundaries that improve administration over Australia's offshore jurisdiction and minimise the potential for litigation. The document does not replace the need to seek appropriate legal and geospatial advice when determining and describing maritime boundaries.
