Modifications

The bioregional assessment areas layer used by WetlandSummary is based on the source layers below, with the following modifications:

  • Combined layer containing both bioregion and subregion assessment areas
  • Name is the value of either the Bioregion or Subregion field depending on the source layer
  • Excluded Clarence-Moreton subregion as it is identical to the bioregion of the same name
  • Excluded Gwydir subregion as it is predominantly in NSW
  • Transformed coordinate system of ba_bioregion_alb_gda94_v06.shp from UTM GDA_1994_Australia_Albers to geodetic EPSG:GDA94
  • Transformed coordinate system of ba_subregion_alb_v06.shp from UTM GDA_1994_Australia_Albers to geodetic EPSG:GDA94
  • Excluded 11 features outside of Queensland
  • Excluded a total of 2 features by filtering
  • Clipped 5 features extending partially beyond the Queensland border (some may be due to minor misalignment at the border)
  • Combined features and attributes from 2 source layers
  • Excluded source field albers_ha because appears in multiple source layers with different types: Double, String

Version 4 of the Bioregional Assessment areas. The dataset contains the following changes from version 3:

Sydney Basin:

  • Subregions in Southern Sydney Basin bioregion combined into a single bioregion

  • Southern Sydney Basin bioregion renamed to Sydney Basin bioregion

  • SSB code for previous Southern Sydney Basin bioregion changed to SYD

Gippsland Basin bioregion boundary changed per instructions from GIP project leader including;

  • Northern boundary, which is different to PAE, along local/regional groundwater regime boundary

  • Mornington peninsula excised

  • Gippsland Lakes included
