NOTES:

 

1.      As described in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette GN47 of 17 November 2004.

2.      Coordinates for points CSCZ-2 to CSCZ-4 are expressed in terms of the Australian Geodetic Datum 1966 (AGD66) and coincide with points (a), (p) and (o) respectively under the Treaty between Australia and the Independent State of Papua New Guinea concerning Sovereignty and Maritime Boundaries in the Area between the Two Countries, including the Area Known as Torres Strait, and Related Matters of 18 December 1978 (Annex 9).  [In force 15 February 1985]

3.      Coordinates for points CSCZ-6 to CSCZ-12 are expressed in terms of the Australian Geodetic Datum 1966 (AGD66) and coincide with points (n) to (t) respectively under the Treaty between Australia and the Independent State of Papua New Guinea concerning Sovereignty and Maritime Boundaries in the Area between the Two Countries, including the Area Known as Torres Strait, and Related Matters of 18 December 1978 (Annex 5).  [In force 15 February 1985]

4.      Coordinates for points CSCZ-57 and CSCZ-58 are expressed in terms of the World Geodetic System 1972 (WGS72) and coincides with points V and R1 respectively under the Agreement between the Government of Australia and the Government of Solomon Islands establishing Certain Sea and Seabed Boundaries of 13 September 1988 (Art. 1).  [In force 14 April 1989]

5.      Coordinates for points CSCZ-58 to CSCZ-74 are expressed in terms of the World Geodetic System 1972 (WGS72) and coincide with points R1 to R17 respectively under the Agreement on Maritime Delimitation between the Government of Australia and the Government of the French Republic of 4 January 1982 (Art. 1).  [In force 10 January 1983]

6.      Coordinates for points CSCZ- 76 to CSCZ- 81 are expressed in terms of the Australian Geodetic Datum 1966 (AGD66) and coincide with points (g) to (b) respectively under the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act 1975 – Act No. 85 of 1975 as amended.

7.      The table in Annex A expresses the above coordinates in terms of the International Terrestrial Reference Frame 2000 (ITRF2000) coordinates as defined by the International Earth Rotation Service at epoch 1 January 2000.  This is to provide consistency in expressing treaty and legislative coordinates in terms of ITRF2000.  The original treaty and legislative documents remain the primary source for the location of the boundaries as defined in those documents.

8.      The differences between ITRF2000 and the World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84) are in the centimetre range worldwide.  Therefore, for the purpose of this proclamation and for all mapping and charting purposes they can be considered the same.*
