Modifications

The regional natural resource management (NRM) bodies layer used by WetlandSummary is based on the source layers below, with the following modifications:

  • Name is the value of the NRM_BODY field
  • Excluded feature where the NRM_BODY field is empty (the joint management area between Cape York and Nothern Gulf)
  • Excluded a total of 1 feature by filtering
  • Excluded source field COMMENTS because it has no values
  • WetlandSummary reported area is clipped to coastline

Additional human language abstract/description

This dataset shows the boundaries used in the natural resource management regional funding programs. They reflect the area covered by each of the regional NRM bodies of the Community and Government partnership responsible for protecting and managing Queensland's natural resources.

Resource purpose/summary
To provide boundary information for the 14 regional natural resource management bodies. Captured at 1:100000

Report
Data quality report, measure description
No positional accuracy statements are attached to this file. The positional accuracy of the data is equivalent to that of the Digital Cadastral Database (DCDB) at the time of the extraction. There may be degradation of the positional accuracy in the translation to GIS formats.
Data Lineage
Lineage statement, a general explanation
This dataset is GDA2020 compatible. The source data, and therefore the captured features, are georeferenced as GDA94 (horizontal only).  The horizontal accuracy of the geo-referencing and/or data collection method for this example is greater than the datum offset between GDA94 and GDA2020 (1.8 meters).  The resulting dataset has been nominated as a low-accuracy GDA2020 dataset. As this data has not been directly captured in GDA2020, nor transformed to GDA2020, the resulting data is 'GDA2020 Compatible' not 'GDA2020 Compliant'

Based on 100000 catchment boundaries with additional boundaries coming from other sources eg CYPLUS; AMBIS.

The NRM Regional Bodies' Boundaries dataset is derived from the Local government Boundaries dataset, extracted from the Digital Cadastre Database. The data is extracted from the DCDB whenever there are significant changes to the NRM Regional Bodies’ boundaries. Each area shown on the data has two attributes, one being the Region name, and the other the name of the NRM body organisation.

Condamine Alliance boundary amended November 2009 using data supplied by Lucy Richardson of Condamine Alliance.

Condamine Alliance, South West NRM and Queensland Murray-Darling Committee merged into Southern Queensland, November 2018

Southern Queensland NRM body name changed to Southern Queenland Landscapes, September 2019

The extent of the Northern Gulf body enlarged to include the Joint Managment Area, the area of cooperative management between the Cape York and Northern Gulf bodies, November 2019

Northern Gulf NRM body name changed to Gulf Savannah NRM, November 2022
