Additional human language abstract/description

Potential groundwater dependent ecosystem (GDE) aquifer mapping identifies the extent and key characteristics of aquifers potentially supporting surface expression and terrestrial GDEs in the landscape. There may be other aquifers at lower depths that are not captured in this mapping (e.g. confined aquifers) that may support GDEs, particularly spring ecosystems. The potential aquifers captured in this mapping may also be subterranean aquifer GDEs. Potential GDE aquifers havebeen characterised according to a range of criteria including confinement, geology, porosity, groundwater flow system, salinity, pH, recharge process, temporal connectivity with ecosystems, etc.

The potential GDE aquifer mapping consists of 1 data set which can be viewed independently or complementary to Queensland’s GDE mapping.

Version 1.0 (released in July 2015) - mapping covers South East Queensland (SEQ), Lake Eyre Basin (LEB), Cooper Basin (CB), Galilee Basin (GB), and western Murray-Darling Basin (wMDB).

Version 1.1 to 1.3 do not exist.

Version 1.4 (released in December 2015) - mapping extended to include Surat Basin (SB) and southern Bowen Basin (sBB).

Version 1.5 (released in March 2017) - mapping extended to include eastern Murray-Darling Basin (eMDB).

Report
Data quality report, measure description
This dataset reflects the level of knowledge and information about the landscape that may be biased due to a range of reasons such as accessibility and land use: It is likely that the dataset is incomplete. Detailed field survey and verification of the groundwater location, extent and fluctuation has not been done, nor has the level of ecosystem dependency on groundwater been tested.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The aquifer attribution was sourced from local expert knowledge, literature and spatial data. The reliability of different attribute values may vary. Areas described as 'known' have been delineated according to local expert knowledge and generally have the highest level of confidence. Areas that are derived from a rule base, that make up the majority of the areas mapped, have been assigned a level of confidence according to judgment of the reliability of knowledge supporting the rule base.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The mapping linework is at a nominal scale of 1:100 000 or better & the accuracy associated with this is within the range +/-100 metres. For more information refer to the regional ecosystems and Queensland Wetlands Data metadata.

Subterranean groundwater dependent ecosystems (GDE) areas
Additional human language abstract/description

Subterranean GDEs are ecosystems dependent on the subterranean presence of groundwater on a permanent or intermittent basis to meet all or some of their water requirements so as to maintain their communities of plants and animals, ecological processes and ecosystem services. Subterranean GDE area features include cave ecosystemsthat have some groundwater dependency. Information about the location and extent of known and potential GDEs was sourced from expert knowledge, literature and existing datasets. This dataset is one of five datasets that describe the distribution of known and potential GDEs across the landscape. The complete set of GDE datasets is: 1. Surface expression GDE points, 2. Surface expression GDE lines, 3. Surface expression GDE areas, 4. Terrestrial GDE areas, 5. Subterranean GDE areas. As the different types of GDEs represent different overlapping layers or cross-sections of the landscape, it is recommended that the datasets be mapped in the order of listing shown above (i.e. surface expression GDE points on top) to maintain logical consistency and assist visualization.

The GDE attribution was sourced from the Queensland Springs database. The reliability of different attribute values may vary. Field sampled GDE points are attributed as known GDEs. Those that have not been field sampled are attributed as derived - low confidence.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The positional accuracy of field sampled GDE points is high (+/- 1 metre). Unsampled GDE points have a lower positional accuracy typically +/- 1 kilometre. For more information refer to the Queensland Springs Database metadata.

Title
Terrestrial Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems  V1.5
Additional human language abstract/description

TerrestrialGDEs are ecosystems dependent on the sub-surface presenceof groundwater on a permanent or intermittent basis to meet all or some of their water requirements so as to maintain their communities of plants and animals, ecological processes and ecosystem services. TerrestrialGDE area features include riverine wetlands and treed (deep rooted) regional ecosystems that have some groundwater dependency. Information about the location and extent of known and potential GDEs was sourced from expert knowledge, literature and existing datasets.This dataset is one of five datasets that describe the distribution of known and potential GDEs across the landscape. The complete set of GDE datasets is: 1. Surface expression GDE points, 2. Surface expression GDE lines, 3. Surface expression GDE areas, 4. Terrestrial GDE areas, 5. Subterranean GDE areas. As the different types of GDEs represent different overlapping layers or cross-sections of the landscape, it is recommended that the datasets be mapped in the order of listing shown above (i.e. surface expression GDE points on top) to maintain logical consistency and assist visualization.

Version 1.0 (released October 2012) - mapping covering the eastern Murray-Darling Basin (eMDB) and Wide Bay-Burnett (WBB).

Version 1.1 (released May 2013) - mapping extended to include Pumicestone Passage catchment (PUM) and Mackay-Whitsunday (MW).

Version 1.2 (released May 2015) - mapping extended to include South East Queensland (SEQ).

Version 1.3 (released July 2015) - mapping extended to include Lake Eyre Basin (LEB), Cooper Basin (CB), Galilee Basin (GB), and western Murray-Darling Basin (wMDB).

Version 1.4 (released December 2015) - mapping extended to include Surat Basin (SB) and southern Bowen Basin (sBB).

Version 1.5 (released March 2017) - mapping covering the eastern Murray-Darling Basin (MDB) improved.

Dq Info
Report
Data quality report, measure description
This dataset reflects the level of knowledge and information about the landscape that may be biased due to a range of reasons such as accessibility and land use: It is likely that the dataset is incomplete. Detailed field survey and verification of the groundwater location, extent and fluctuation has not been done, nor has the level of ecosystem dependency on groundwater been tested.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The GDE attribution was sourced from local expert knowledge, literature and spatial data. The reliability of different attribute values may vary. Areas described as 'known' have been delineated according to local expert knowledge and generally have the highest level of confidence. Areas that are derived from a rule base, that make up the majority of the areas mapped, have been assigned a level of confidence according to judgment of the reliability of knowledge supporting the rule base.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The mapping linework is at a nominal scale of 1:100,000 and the accuracy associated with this is within the range +/-100 metres. For more information refer to the regional ecosystems and Queensland Wetlands Data metadata.
