Queensland Wetland Classification Database (QWCD)

The Queensland Wetland Classification Database (QWCD) supports the Queensland Wetland Mapping Method and Queensland Wetland Classification Scheme. This database contains information on attribute themes, attributes, level, categories, category tiers, qualifiers, and their descriptions for all classification sub-schemes applied in Queensland Wetland Data. In addition, the QWCD contains information on the naming of fields and values used in Queensland Wetland Data, as well as the data sources used to populate each attribute.
