VIC MWC - Drainage - Waterway Connector (Line) Apr 2018

This dataset presents the location of natural waterway centreline connector features. The connector is an artificial feature, used to connect watercourse centrelines where they are separated by water areas such as lakes, swamps/lagoons, wetlands, and where there is flow across a waterbody polygon feature. Captured by digitizing a line along the centre of a linear geographic feature (the lake, wetland or other structure along a waterway, delineated using the top of embankment or extent/boundary). When used in conjunction with the natural waterway and channel centreline layers, this layer completes the entire waterway/hydrology linear (centreline) network. Includes minimal attributes (e.g. waterway name, asset/section number) to assist with its intended purpose.

The purpose of a waterway connector is to allow linear analysis of drainage networks that flow through both linear (stream) and polygon (watercourse area) features. The connector is an artificial feature, so is to be used for network modelling, tracing or cartographic mapping purposes only. When used in conjunction with the natural waterway and channel centreline layers, this layer completes the entire waterway/hydrology linear (centreline) network. Limited attributes are used to help link the feature to corresponding waterway or channel centrelines.
