About the guidelines
We use point-based fauna and flora survey and mapped data to:
- support decision making on referral applications, assessments and approvals under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Protection Act 1999
- help protect and recover species and communities.
The guidelines outline data and information requirements for species data. This includes:
- threatened species
- migratory species
- listed marine species
- invasive species.
Using the template
Use our template and follow the steps on the Read Me First worksheet.
Supply data in csv or MS Excel format. If you delimitate using commas, use double quotes around text fields.
Supply your spatial data in a format that can be read by ESRI ArcGIS. The preferred format is ESRI shapefile or KLM file. Document all datasets and their attributes.
