Lineage

The dam walls were digitized in 2011/2012 from the library of imagery held within Geoscience Australia. Imagery used ranged from 0.15m resolution aerial photos to 2.5m resolution satellite images. Source Information: Primary information source used to identify and attribute the dam walls was the annually released and publicly available Australian National Committee of Large Dams (ANCOLD) Excel spreadsheet. http://www.ancold.org.au/file/Dams%20Australia%202010%20v1.xls The primary information source was supplemented with online, publicly available information from water companies and government agencies, including local government.
