Resource purpose/summary
Subterranean groundwater dependent ecosystems (GDE) areas
Additional human language abstract/description

Subterranean GDEs are ecosystems dependent on the subterranean presence of groundwater on a permanent or intermittent basis to meet all or some of their water requirements so as to maintain their communities of plants and animals, ecological processes and ecosystem services. Subterranean GDE area features include cave ecosystemsthat have some groundwater dependency. Information about the location and extent of known and potential GDEs was sourced from expert knowledge, literature and existing datasets. This dataset is one of five datasets that describe the distribution of known and potential GDEs across the landscape. The complete set of GDE datasets is: 1. Surface expression GDE points, 2. Surface expression GDE lines, 3. Surface expression GDE areas, 4. Terrestrial GDE areas, 5. Subterranean GDE areas. As the different types of GDEs represent different overlapping layers or cross-sections of the landscape, it is recommended that the datasets be mapped in the order of listing shown above (i.e. surface expression GDE points on top) to maintain logical consistency and assist visualization.

Version 1.0 (released October 2012) - mapping covers the whole of Queensland

Versions1.1 to 1.3 do not exist

Version 1.4(released December2015) - updated mapping covers the whole of Queensland and includes significant updates to attribution

Version 1.5 (released March 2017) - no change from v1.4

Version 1.5.1 (released in May 2018) - mapping attribution revised to update hyperlinks to supporting material delivered via webpages.

Report
Data quality report, measure description
This dataset reflects the level of knowledge and information about the landscape that may be biased due to a range of reasons such as accessibility and land use: It is likely that the dataset is incomplete. Detailed field survey and verification of the groundwater location, extent and fluctuation has not been done, nor has the level of ecosystem dependency on groundwater been tested.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The GDE attribution was sourced from local expert knowledge, literature and spatial data. The reliability of different attribute values may vary. Areas described as 'known' have been delineated according to local expert knowledge and generally have the highest level of confidence. Areas that are derived from a rule base, that make up the majority of the areas mapped, have been assigned a level of confidence according to judgment of the reliability of knowledge supporting the rule base.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The mapping linework is at a nominal scale of 1:100,000 and the accuracy associated with this is within the range +/-100 metres.

Data Lineage
Lineage statement, a general explanation
This dataset is derived from the Queensland Herbarium's: Biodiversity of Pre-Clearing and Remnant Regional Ecosystems, and Wetland Waterbodies.

Queensland Wetland Data Version 6.0 – Wetland Areas (2019), is an updated version of data previously released as version 1.0 (GBR catchments), version 1.1 (Wide Bay Burnett catchments), version 1.2 (Great Barrier Reef, northern Cape York Peninsula and Queensland Murray Darling Basin), version 1.3 (Queensland) and version 2.0 to 5.0 (Queensland). Versions up to and including version 1.3 depicted extent of wetlands based on rectified 2001 Landsat ETM+ imagery, version 2.0 depicted extent of wetlands based on rectified 2005 Landsat ETM+ imagery . Version 3.0 depicted extent of wetlands in 2001, 2005 and 2009 based on rectified 2001/2005/2009 Landsat ETM+ imagery.  Version 4.0 depicts the extent of wetlands in 2001, 2005, 2009 and 2013 based on rectified 2001/2005/2009/2013 Landsat ETM+ imagery. Version 5.0 depicts the extent of wetlands in 2001, 2005, 2009, 2013 and 2017 based on rectified 2001/2005/2009/2013/2017 Landsat ETM+ imagery. Version 6.0 depicts the extent of wetlands in 2001, 2005, 2009, 2013, 2017 and 2019 based on rectified 2001/2005/2009/2013/2017/2019 Landsat ETM+ imagery. This data is produced by combining the wetland regional ecosystem areas with wetland waterbody data. Where overlap occurred across wetland waterbodies and wetland regional ecosystem polygons, a decision tree is used to determine which polygon takes priority.

The extent of wetlands depicted is based on rectified 2019 Landsat ETM+ imagery (supplied by SLATS, Department of Environment and Science).

Note that some small offshore terrestrial islands may not be delineated due to the mapping extents and scale of source data and the imagery available to delineate such features.

Report
Data quality report, measure description
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 directly measured in GDA2020, nor transformed to GDA2020 the resulting data is 'GDA2020 Compatible', not Compliant.
