Resource purpose/summary
The Aquatic Biodiversity Assessment and Mapping Method (AquaBAMM) is a comprehensive methodology developed by the Department of Environment and Science (DES) for assessing the conservation values of wetlands in Queensland (Clayton, et al 2006).

The method identifies relative wetland conservation values within a specified study area (usually a catchment). The method uses available data including data resulting from expert opinion to produce an Aquatic Conservation Assessment (ACA) for the wetlands within a study area. The results provide a powerful decision support tool that is easily updated and able to be comprehensively interrogated through a Geographic Information System (GIS) platform.
Additional human language abstract/description

This data defines the bounding area used to determine the Aquatic Conservation Assessment (ACA) values for the riverine catchments and non-riverine wetlands of the Eastern Gulf of Carpentariausing the Aquatic Biodiversity Assessment and Mapping Methodology (AquaBAMM).

Report
Data quality report, measure description
Polygons visually checked at 1:100,000 scale and by topological consistency checks for each Aquatic Conservation Assessment. Checks between individual ACAs have not been conducted.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
Absolute external positional accuracy is equivalent to the capture scale of the source data, the Queensland drainage basins (catchment) dataset, which is 1:100,000. Consideration of the effects of mapped scale is necessary when interpreting data at a scale larger than this. For property assessment, digital line work should be used as a guide only.
Report
Data quality report, measure description
The boundaries and names of the Queensland drainage basins (catchment) are as defined by the Australian Water Resources Management Committee (WRMC).
