Abstract
The Convention on Wetlands of International Importance wa the first modern inter-governmental treaty between nations aiming to conserve natural resources. The signing of the Convention took place in 1971 in the small Iranian town of Ramsar (since then, it has taken the common name of the Ramsar Convention). Australia was the first nation to become a Contracting Party to the Convention.
The Convention's broad aims are to halt the worldwide los of wetlands and to conserve, through wise use and management, those that remain. This requires international cooperation, policy making, capacity building and technology transfer.
There are 5 Ramsar sites within Queensland (Administrator are shown in brackets):
Moreton Bay (Queensland), Bowling Green Bay (Queensland), Currawinya Lakes (Queensland), Shoalwater and Corio Bays (Queensland/ Commonwealth), Great Sandy (Queensland).

Attribute Accuracy Report
The attributes vary depending on the source of the data The EPA has attempted to record the lineage of all linework within the ramsar coverages.
Logical Consistency Report
Not consistent due to the multi-source nature of th data.
Positional Accuracy
Horizontal Positional Accuracy
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report
Moreton Bay - varies according to source of linework, e line work extracted from the DCDB will have a line attribute stating this.
Bowling Green Bay - derived from the DCDB. Therefore, i is comparable to the DCDB in positional accuracy.
Currawinya Lakes - derived from the DCDB. Therefore, it i comparable to the DCDB in positional accuracy.
Shoalwater and Corio Bays - varies according to source o linework, eg line work digitised will have a line attribute stating this.
Great Sandy - varies according to source of linework, e line work extracted from the DCDB will have a line attribute stating this.
Completeness Report
