The database contains locational and non-locational information for selected dams and storages in Australia. It extends as far as Australia's off-shore limits, but does not include external Territories. Though the database contains information for those dams and storages owned by a public authority, some significant private dams are included.

The source of this information is primarily the databases of the particular controlling authority for each state and, to a lesser extent, maps and publications of State and Federal agencies, in particular, the Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD).

The data covers the whole of Australia, both onshore and offshore, between latitude limits -5°S to -44°S and longitude limits 110°E and 160°E. The scale is independent and latitudes and longitudes are expressed to the nearest 1/10th of a minute.
