Coastal Data System - Storm Tide Reference Landmarks

Data usability rating :
Contains non-machine readable open data.

The Department of Environment and Science (DES) provided a report and has established an interactive mapping tool to help relate elevations provided by the Bureau of Meteorology's Storm Tide Advice to easily recognisable landmarks and geographic features. This tool has been created in order to aid understanding and communicating information through Storm Tide Advice Graphics.

For each of the 64 sites identified in the Queensland Tropical Cyclone Storm Tide Warning Response System Handbook, Storm Tide Advice Graphics also known as Totem Poles have been generated showing the relative heights of each identified feature, as well as an image indicating the exact reference point to which is being referred.

The Storm Tide Reference Landmark Project is a joint initiative of the Australian Government and the Queensland Government.
