SA DEW - Waterbodies (Polygon)

The Hydro Water Bodies data set comprises the following hydrographic features: Reservoirs, Dams, Lakes (permanent, intermittent and mainly dry), Land Subject to Inundation and Flooding. It is one of a collection of individual hydrographic data sets that topologically structured and comprise point, line and polygon data types at a general capture scale of 1:50,000. It is used in a variety of applications, particularly in natural resource management, planning and development, and digital map publication.

Through the Commonwealth (Bureau of Meteorology) funded Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric) project 2011-2012 respective versions of surface water datasets from the former DFW and former DENR were integrated to create a single authoritative database. Water bodies within Adelaide & Mount Lofty Ranges (Fleurieu Peninsula), Kangaroo Island and Northern & Yorke NRM regions were updated to a detailed survey specification. Subsequently, water bodies within the remaining area of A&MLR and the western part of the SA Murray-Darling Basin (Eastern Mount Lofty Ranges) regions were also updated to the detailed survey specification.

Data in the pastoral regions of the State has been sourced from the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) Geofabric Surface Cartography V2.1 AHGFWaterbody dataset (equivalent to Geoscience Australia's GEODATA TOPO 250K). The Geofabric data was integrated in June 2013.
