Victorian Coastline 2008

Coastline of Victoria based primarily on zero metre (0m) contour dataset from the Vicmap Elevation Coastal DEM and Contours product derived using LIDAR and reviewing this dataset against the most recent and highest resolution aerial photography available in the DSE CIP image repository. Where LIDAR contours were absent or of poor quality, the coastline was digitised from recent API. For MGA Zone 54, zero contour was largely incomplete, and 0.5m contour was used due to the absence of a satisfactory 0m contour. Where no LIDAR and photography was available, Framework was used (including for internal state boundaries).

Data Temporal Coverage: 2008-01-01 to 2008-12-31
Geospatial Coverage 141,-39,150,-34
Geospatial Scale unknown
Geospatial Accuracy All captured features have been populated for api source, capture source and retention of any Vicmap attribute items and values. Sourced digital accuracy from imagery is within 50cm pixel resolution. Vector information captured at approx 1:1000 mapscale resolution. Topological testing was undertaken for shared nodes. It follows that the estimated accuracy of the spatial data is +/-2.0m. Given the time differences in LIDAR returns it is clear that the coastline does not consistently depict high or low tide, but rather a general or average view of the coastline (or possibly a mean sea level) on a statewide basis.
