Statewide watercourse network, line - 1:250,000 to 1 :5 million. Vicmap Lite

This layer is part of Vicmap Lite and contains line features delineating hydrological features. Vicmap Lite datasets are suited for use between scales of 1: 250,000 and 1 : 5 million. The linework was sourced from Vicmap Hydro. The level of attribute information, the number of features and the number of vertices has been simplified to suit the 1: 250,000 - 1 : 5 million scale range. The concept of a Scale Use Code has been introduced to help control the level of detail displayed.

If this dataset is used in conjunction with vmlite_hy_water_area, then the draw order should be such that vmlite_hy_watercourse is drawn 1st and vmlite_hy_water_area is drawn ontop.
