Abstract / Description:
This dataset shows the extent and names of major airports and aerodromes within the State of Queensland.
To provide digital data displaying the extent of major airports and aerodromes within the State of Queensland for use in Land Administration, Topographic Mapping, and Emergency Management and in the production of Navigational and Web Based Mapping applications.
Additional Information:
The data has been compiled from numerous sources to produce a state wide coverage with the boundary of the airport aligned in most cases with the Queensland Digital Cadastral Database (DCDB).
Attributes within the data describe the source and reliability of the data.
Source data includes:
- Queensland Digital Cadastral Database
- Queensland Orthophotography
- Satellite Imagery
Language: eng
Character set: unknown

Data Quality

Data quality scope:
Level: dataset
Completeness (omission):

The collection of feature types will be complete.
Consistency (conceptual):

Data should be free from overshoots, undershoots, duplicate lines and agree with Topographic Data Product Description requirements with a 5% error status
Positional accuracy (external, absolute):

The horizontal positional accuracy of the data that has been used to compile this dataset is as follows: Orthophotography +/- 1m, Satellite Imagery +/- 2.5m. The horizontal positional accuracy of DCDB is dependent on the accuracy of the DCDB at the time of extraction.
Attribute accuracy (non quantitative):

Attribution is completed and agrees with Topographic Data Product Description requirements.


Lineage statement:
The location of the features was sourced from existing topographic and regional mapping and Geoscience Australia and linked to the Queensland Digital Cadastral Database parcels. The features were validated against current orthophotography, satellite imagery and modified where necessary.

Feature Types:
Airport Area - The defined area of a facility licensed, certified or registered by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority intended to be used either wholly or in part for the arrival, departure and surface movement of aircraft and associated cargo.

FEATURETYPE - Unique feature type that identifies the topographic feature e.g. Airport Area
NAME - The name of the feature
ALTERNATENAME - An alternate name of the feature (if available)
FEATURERELIABILITY - Reliability date of the source information
FEATURESOURCE - The imagery, map or data that the spatial location of the feature was obtained from
ATTRIBUTERELIABILITY - Reliability date of the document or authority that the name of the feature was acquired from
ATTRIBUTESOURCE - The source (imagery, map or data) used for attributing (naming) of the feature.
PLANIMETRICACCURACY - The standard deviation of the horizontal positional accuracy.
TEXTNOTE - A comment field.
DIMENSION - This is the dimension of the feature in square metres as measured in the GDA94 Australia Albus projection.
