Victorian Biodiversity Atlas fauna records (unrestricted) for sites with high spatial accuracy

This layer contains a snapshot of fauna taxa records from the Victorian Biodiversity Atlas (VBA) (including most threatened taxa and marine protists). The main attributes in this layer are survey id, survey location, date, time, locational accuracy, taxa recorded, counts, observation type, survey type, collector, and reliability of the record. The VERS_DATE column identifies the currency of the data.

Although this is a point layer, the actual accuracy of the site can range from +/- 1m to +/- 500m.

This layer excludes restricted taxa records. These records are contained in the related (but restricted) dataset VBA_FAUNA_RESTRICTED. Public users wishing to view the general location of these records should refer to the related datasets VBA_FAUNA_GRID_1M, VBA_FAUNA_GRID_5M and VBA_FAUNA_GRID_10M.

Data Temporal Coverage: 1750-01-01 to 2018-12-31
Geospatial Coverage 141,-39,150,-34
Geospatial Scale 1:25 000 to 1:100 000
Geospatial Accuracy Estimated at > 90% Precision: 100 metres to 500 metres. Determination: Localities are generally read from 1:100,00 maps, or sometimes from GPS. A number of checks are made to verify geocode. The accuracy of each record is contained in the MAX_ACC_KM field as a +/- value in km, i.e the value represents a radius around the point.
