Brief description

Australia's River Basins 1997 is the result of a joint State, Territory and Commonwealth Government project to create a national spatial database of major hydrological basins. It shows the boundaries of Australia's basins as defined by the Australian Water Resources Management Committee (WRMC).

Australia is divided into drainage divisions which are sub-divided into water regions which are in-turn sub-divided into river basins. The data includes the name and number of each of the 245 drainage basins, 77 regions, and 12 divisions.

Lineage

Data for basin boundaries have been captured by relevant State and Territory authorities from 1:10 000 and 1:250 000 scale source material. The balance of the data are from Geoscience Australia's GEODATA Coast 100K which includes coastlines and State and Territory borders.

Australia's River Basin data complies with the following rules for topology:

- The data has a node/chain structure;
- Every line feature has a node at each end;
- Every line feature has a node at intersections;
- Every line feature has a node at the point where an attribute of the feature changes;
- There are no unnecessary pseudo nodes;
- Every polygon is closed;
- Every polygon contains a polygon label point;
- There are no coincident features;

- There are no undershoots, overshoots, broken lines or other artefacts;

- Divisions, Regions or Basins that are intersected by State borders have identical label point attributes each side of the State border; and

- Lines intersected by State borders, except for coastline, have identical attributes.
