Description: The Place Names Gazetteer dataset is an extract from the Place Names Database (PNDB) and each place name is represented as a point of latitude and longitude. The data was compiled from the following sources: cadastral and topographic maps, Place Names Card File, Queensland Government Gazettes, Queensland Place Names (QPN) Plans. The Queensland Government has a legislative requirement under the Place Names Act 1994 to record approved place names within Queensland. Under the Act, all approved place names are to be recorded in the Gazetteer.The Act defines "place" as an area or geographical feature (whether natural or artificial). However, a `place` does not include: a) a road within the meaning of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management Act) 1995 b) a canal associated with residential or commercial development c) a building or similar structure d) a dam wall or similar structure e) a local government area or a division or ward of a local government area f) an electoral district under the Electoral Act 1992 g) another place prescribed by regulation.
