Lineage

The points were digitized in 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 and RAN Hydrographical Charts where no imagery was available. This database should not be regarded as an authoritative and accurate record of all Australian Lighthouses and/or Navigation lights on the Australian coastline Source Information: Primary information sources used to identify and attribute the Australian Coastal Maritime Navigation Lights came from internal Geoscience Australia (GA) data, Lighthouses of Australia Inc and the Australian Lighthouses websites (both available from www.lighthouses.net.au).
