Modifications

The forest reserves layer used by WetlandSummary is based on the source layers below, with the following modifications:

  • Name is the value of the ESTATENAME field
  • Included only features with EST_TENURE="FR"
  • Excluded a total of 1,865 features by filtering
  • Dissolved 61 source features into 30 forest reserves
  • Excluded source field SHIRE because it has no values
  • Excluded source field FEAT_NAME_ because it has no values
  • Excluded source field ENCUMBERAN because it has no values
  • Excluded source field IJMA because it has no values

Source layer: QPWS_SIS.ESTATE

Additional human language abstract/description

This dataset is the spatial representation of reserves, protected for the conservation of natural and cultural values and areas managed for the production of forest resources.

Resource purpose/summary
Provides a graphical representation of the protected area estate as managed by QPWS (Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service) for areas managed under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 (National Park of various types, Conservation Park and Resources Reserve), and areas managed under the Forestry Act 1959 (State Forest, Forest Reserve and Timber Reserve).

Not to be used as a definitive absolute location of reserve boundaries. This dataset is derived from the Digital Cadastre DataBase (DCDB). The accuracy of the spatial representation is determined by the accuracy of records in the version of the DCDB from which this dataset was derived.

Supplemental information about the data
This spatial dataset consists of terrestrial protected area reserves managed under the Queensland Nature Conservation Act and the Forestry Act. Areas managed under the Nature Conservation Act are categorised under the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) management categories. This dataset is primarily based on the Digital Cadastre DataBase (DCDB). The dataset is updated as new protected areas are added to the system of reserves, reserves are expanded or the Digital Cadastre DataBase (DCDB) is spatially upgraded.
Dq Info
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The dataset is updated as additions to the system of reserves, or changes to the extent of reserves within the protected area estate are notified or if there is a significant upgrade to the Digital Cadastral DataBase (DCDB) boundaries.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The current protected areas is composed of both base parcels and strata level parcels (secondary interest). Strata level parcels cover areas of indigenous joint managemenet (Cape York Peninsual Aboriginal Land and Indigenous Joint Management Areas), where the base parcel type is normally freehold. The graphic package that generates the Digital Cadastre DataBase (DCDB) layer from which this layer is derived has a spatial tolerance of 2mm.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The shapes of the parcel records are copied directly from the Digital Cadastre DataBase (DCDB). Positional accuracy matches the accuracy of the Queensland Digital Cadastre Database (DCDB) as at the time of capture. Amendments to DCDB polygon and attribute information for reserves are based on official gazetted/notified plans.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
Attributes drived from the Digital Cadastre DataBase (DCDB) records match the accuracy of that dataset (estimated attribute information is 98% correct). Quantitative attributes are : 1. sourced from the official plans (gazetted area) 2. derived spatially (MGA zone and longitued/latitude coordinates are calculated from the geometry).
Report
Data quality report, measure description
Attributes drived from the Digital Cadastre DataBase (DCDB) records match the accuracy of that dataset (estimated attribute information is 98% correct). All other attributes are: 1. sourced from the regulations (for National Park, Conservation Park Resources Reserve and Forest Reserve - Nature Conservation (Protected Areas) Regulation 1994; for State Forest and Timber Reserve, the Register of Forest Estate and the Forestry (State Forests) Regulation 1987) 2. sourced from QPWS systems such as the Estate Register (e.g. the system integration code)
Data Lineage
Lineage statement, a general explanation
The dataset was created in March 2002, as a foundation source to supply an accurate representation of National Parks, Forest Reserves and State Forests based on the Queensland Digital Cadastral DataBase (DCDB). Initial DCDB polygon extraction was 11 November 2001. A major spatial matching update was carried out on 5th October 2012. Gazettal changes and attribute corrections are applied as a continual update to the DCDB. On 1 July 2016 due to the Nature Conservation and Other Legislation Amendment Regulation (No.2) 2016 the tenure National Park (Scientific) was reinstated and the tenure Regional Park reverted back to either Resources Reserve or Conservation Park.
