Victorian Wetlands listed in - A Directory of Important Wetlands in Australia

This layer contains Victorian wetlands listed in the 3rd Edition of 'A Directory of Important Wetlands of Australia' (2001). Descriptions for each wetland are available in the directory which is available on the Environment Austalia website at: http://www.ea.gov.au/water/wetlands/database/index.html These wetlands are derived from the WETLAND_1994 CGDL layer, hydrological CGDL layer and other sources such as topographic maps. The 2017 update of the Victorian Wetland Inventory (Current) resulted in improved accuracy of the boundary of a number of wetlands, based on on-ground mapping. WETLAND_CURRENT provided the source data to improve the WETLANDDIR dataset.

Data Temporal Coverage: 2000-07-01 to 2001-11-30
Geospatial Coverage 141,-39,150,-34
Geospatial Scale 1:25,000
Geospatial Accuracy Complete Linework in the WETLANDS_1994, WETLANDS_1788, HYDRO100, HYDRO25, HYDROP100, HYDROP25, PLMMT100, COAST25, VEG25, EVC100, VIC100, RAMSAR100 and TOPO25 were selected for this layer. The WETLAND_1994 layer precision is 10m to 100m. Ad-hoc comparisons with 1:25,000 layer data showed good correlation in shape and size, but with errors of the order indicated above in terms of position and/or rotation.
