Disclaimers and accuracy statements for GPS data

Lines accuracy

The lines dataset/s have been simplified in order to reduce the number of trackpoints required for detailed lines. This allows more features to be loaded into your GPS unit or Marine Chart Plotter, as these devices have trackpoint number limitations of varying sizes. As a result the lines may be up to 10 metres from their defined position as stored in the original Geogrpahic Information System (GIS) dataset. The legally defined points of all lines remain in their defined location as stated in the Fisheries Management Act 2007.

GPS accuracy

Most GPS manufacturers state the accuracy of their standard GPS receivers to be within +/- 10 metres of the true ground coordinate. Check with your manufacturer for your device's accuracy.
