  Lineage Produced under specific contract for GBRMPA by AUSLIG. Habitats surveyed in conjunction with analysis of Landsat Panchromatic Imagery and Aerial Photographic interpretation.
  Positional Accuracy FORSHORE coverage has not been statistically tested with precision survey techniques. Positional accuracy varies considerably and dataset should NOT be used for navigation purposes, however, for general use the coverage can be regarded as having a nominal scale of 1:250,000.
  Attribute Accuracy No useable attributes are included.
  Logical Consistency FORSHORE is logically consistent in that it coincides with other GBRMPA base datasets, COAST, MANGROVE, ISLANDS.
  Completeness Major foreshore features are present.
