Abstract

The Facility Point Feature Class sits within the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Assets Geodatabase. The Facility Point layer includes infrastructure items associated with Day Use and Camping Areas such as BBQs, Picnic Tables and Shelters, Fish Cleaning Tables, Seats and Playground Equipment as well as other miscellaneous features such as Swimming Pools, Emergency Meeting Points and Gravesites.

The Assets Geodatabase is directly related to the Assets Maintenance System (AMS) which runs under SAP and contains similar fields, values and business rules. The Assets Geodatabase is the vehicle in which spatial assets are initially captured, edited and stored so that the features have coordinates and can be viewed spatially. The data is collected across the entire NSW National Parks Estate and includes some off-park features for fire management, access and mapping purposes. The spatial feature data is manually synchronised with the AMS. The two systems run side by side and are linked by an ID field. AMS is also set up to be used by other OEH Divisions eg. Botanic Gardens and Parklands and previously Marine Parks.

The database includes the following asset Feature Class types - Barrier, Bridge or Elevated Walkway, Building, Communication Equipment, Crossing, Drainage Point, Environmental Monitoring Station, Extractive industry, Facility, Fence Handrail, Fire Management Zone, Gate, Hydraulic Point, Hydraulic Storage Point, Hydraulic Valve, Irrigation System, Landing, Landing Strip, Lookout, Natural Feature, Other Structure, Parking Area, Pipe Channel Section, Power or Communication line, Power or Communication point, Sign, Step point, Stormwater Drainage Line, Surface, Survey Mark, Tower, Track Section, Treatment Disposal System, Visitor Area, Visitor Monitoring Point. Detailed documentation is available including: - Data Dictionary (internal location - P:\Corporate\Tools\Information\Assets) - Data Model - Business Rules - Functional Location and Naming Convention

Note that for external supply the dataset is simplified with certain attribute fields being removed. Those fields that have a name prefixed with "d_" contain descriptions extracted from the original geodatabase domains.

Purpose

The Assets Maintenance System and the Assets Geodatabase have been developed to provide:- A corporate master list of all owned and or/maintained assets.- A scheduling tool to efficiently allocate resources to priority asset maintenance tasks.- The ability to document the total asset maintenance task facing the division, including the deferred liability from maintenance not done.- A corporate reporting tool to support analysis, management and decision making at a range of levels.- A spatial component to assist in the production of maps for areas such as Plans of Management, Reserve Fire Management Strategies, Fire Incidents, Brochures, Information Panels etc as well as spatial reporting.

Lineage

NSW OEH Asset data is collected both in the field using various types of GPS and ArcPad software on PDAs, and via on-screen digitising. There are many regional collectors and editors contributing to the dataset. At the time of this metadata creation the GDB has been divided into regional subsets that are managed by a Regional GIS Senior Technical Officer (STO). The STO collects and collates local data and modifies existing data. The master regional subsets are “checked in” every 3 or so months and they are merged into a single Corporate Assets SDE GDB which is accessible state-wide. The GDB contains a defined standard schema of domain properties for each of the 38 Feature Classes. The AMS Dictionary is used to define assets and problem solve issues. The Assets Geodatabase was first created in 2008 with the formal corporate SDE checkin-checkout process being established around 2010. A priority project was initially run statewide to capture the majority of the data before populating the Assets Maintenance System (AMS) which runs in SAP. Some data had been previously captured for earlier assets databases via iPAQs and GPS with ArcPad 6 and 7 software as well as by screen digitising. This was imported into the AMS before the initial checkout.

Scope

dataset

Completeness Commission

Explanation

Some asset features (eg. roads, water points) outside NPWS Estate are sometimes included for brochure, access and fire mapping.

Completeness Ommission

Explanation

Data is being modified constantly in the regions, with state-wide dataset accessibility occurring every 3-4 months. The data is extremely comprehensive with new assets being created regularly which means that the dataset will never be 100% complete.

Conceptual Consistency

Explanation

The data model and schema was vigorously tested and developed.

Topological Consistency

Explanation

The data model and schema was vigorously tested and developed.

Absolute External Positional Accuracy

Explanation

Given the various data capture methods employed, accuracy will vary from sub metre accuracy via Differential GPS to possible 20 metre accuracy from older screen digitising practices when aerial imagery was poorer in quality. Data was collected in the field with the majority of setups being HP iPAQ palm-top computers (PDAs) using ArcPad software with a Card GPS. Where there was little tree cover, an accuracy of 3–5 m was achieved with this former setup. Currently Juno Trimbles are being used more widely and their GPS accuracy is around 1 - 2 metres. Differential GPS with Trimble hardware is also used, particularly in the Lower North Coast Region. Day to day satellite coverage and reception would obviously vary with all of these methods.

Non Quantitative Attribute Accuracy

Explanation

Most data was collected using ArcPad software with the AMS schema. A data dictionary was also provided with training. Attribution should be consistent although "condition" may have changed over time. Some non mandatory fields are not filled.
