Dataset Lineage

The aquifer units derived from NTGS 1:250,000 scale digital geology and from scanned 1:250,000 scale geology maps. Rock types with similar aquifer properties were grouped. The boundaries were then modified using water bore information. In certain areas aquifer boundaries were taken from existing groundwater maps.
