Abstract

Collation and interpretation of existing national datasets relevant to the project is part of the assessment and understanding of Timor-Leste groundwater systems. When collecting data in Timor-Leste several government departments were visited and, from each, different datasets were collected. The Agriculture and Land Geographic Information System (ALGIS) section of the National Directorate of Policy and Planning, Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries had the largest amount of data pertinent to this project. All of the datasets collected are relevant and important; however, much of the data came from different projects and there was no data catalogue present at any department, nor was any metadata attached to the datasets to identify what they were or 'readme' files in any of the project folders. This information needed to be created by Geoscience Australia before the data could be used in an effective manner.
