Data Quality
  Lineage Produced under specific contract for GBRMPA by AUSLIG. Derived from datasets produced by the Division of National Mapping. Hydrographic survey techniques used in conjunction with analysis of Landsat Panchromatic Imagery and Aerial Photographic interpretation. Supplied by AUSLIG as a line-only dataset to provide reef morphology detail; subsequent development has produced a polygon coverage, coincident with GBRMPA’s REEFS, ISLANDS and COAST datasets.
  Positional Accuracy +/- 125 metres as per 250k nominal scale; DRYREEF coverage has not been statistically tested with precision survey techniques. Positional accuracy varies considerably and dataset should NOT be used for navigation purposes.
  Attribute Accuracy DRYREEF has no useable attributes without further dataset development.
  Logical Consistency DRYREEF is spatially coincident at nominal scale with GBRMPA’s REEFS, ISLANDS and COAST datasets.
  Completeness Exposed portions of major reef systems are present. Minor exposed reefs may not be present.
