Lineage

Data were collected primarily for national 1:250 000 scale mapping purposes. Source information for key land tenure classes (including forestry, nature conservation and Aboriginal lands) have been extracted from State and Commonwealth Government gazettes. Declared areas and boundary changes are recorded from gazettals and data holdings are periodically verified by comparison with information obtained from relevant State authorities. The Commonwealth Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission and State government departments have provided information on Aboriginal-held lands which are not gazetted. Information relating to institutional, mining and other classes was obtained from published maps but has not been systematically collected and contains little attribute information. Public roads and smaller reserves in urban areas are specifically excluded. The remaining areas are largely freehold land or leasehold Crown lands and are not distinguished. Other information was obtained from published maps and Geoscience Australia's National Topographic Mapping Series (NTMS).
