Data Quality
  Lineage For the new/revised boundaries (prefixed "FHA" in 'Plan") lineage is an interpretation of previously declared boundaries with current DCDB tenure and lineage. For areas not yet revised boundaries are as interpreted on 1:100000 topo maps and digitised in ArcInfo in 1996. (A few areas have been prepared in draft format from AUSLIG 1:250k dataset or Qldcoast_is coverage Only).
  Positional Accuracy Variable - DCDB and 1:100000 topo; 1:250000 AUSLIG
  Attribute Accuracy Attribute data has been modified across the three groups to give identification as State dataset.
  Logical Consistency As no evidence to the contrary has been ascertained, it is considered that this dataset is logically consistent within the two groups.
  Completeness The dataset is complete to current date.
