Smartline Project Report (PDF Document 0.9 MB)
This report documents the background to the Smartline mapping project and outlines the procedures used in compiling the Smartline, as well as identifying issues and directions for future upgrading of the mapping.
Smartline Data Sources List (Excel Spreadsheet 122 Kb)
This is a list of the data Reference ID numbers and bibliographic & Metadata details for each of the source datasets from which the Smartline map was constructed. Users wishing to determine the sources of data used in the Smartline map can search this information using the information tool available in all Smartline windows as follows: Using the information tool to click on a Smartline map segment brings up a full display of the attributes of that segment; the source of the data in each attribute field is displayed as a 'ref' number (in the Smartline Data model this is the 'ref' or 'REFERENCE_ID' field associated with that attribute). Using this Reference ID number ('ref'), the details of each data source can then be found in the Smartline Data Sources List.
