Christmas Island Water Resources – Undeveloped Water Sources

Water resources data for Christmas Island were assembled as part of ongoing groundwater investigations and monitoring undertaken on Christmas Island during the period from October 1996 to June 1999.

The shapefile ‘non_developed.shp’ contains point locations of possible areas where freshwater could be collected, but as yet these points have not been developed – namely of ‘Grants Well’ and ‘Daniel Roux Cave’ .

Accuracy: These sites have been located by local knowledge and hardcopy mapping collected as part of the reports. No X and Y coordinate points have been added to the attribute table. The accuracy of these points should fall within ± 10m.

Layers were supplied as ESRI shapefiles in CIG85 projection. In September 2003, Geoscience Australia projected these shapefiles into the MGA (GDA94) projection using an XY (X=550015, Y=8780001) shift.
