Abstract

Superb Parrot (Polytelis swainsonii) species sightings in NSW. Sightings are derived from the BioNet Species Sightings oData Web service, via an ETL process which generates geometries for use in the spatial web services listed below. Records are updated daily.

Purpose

Data from the BioNet Species Sightings data collection are used extensively in environmental planning in NSW and scientific research. For assessment and planning purposes, in most cases, a BioNet search will provide some indicative information only. As with any observational data collection, this collection is subject to biases in where observations have been made. The absence of an observation record at a site does not constitute evidence that a species is absent form the site. Presence of species at a site are best determined through thorough and well-structured field surveys.

Explanation

Sightings of fauna and flora are constantly submitted for entry into the BioNet-Atlas, and so the dataset will never be complete. ; ; It should be noted that the dataset may contain more than one sighting of the same individual organism. For example, a single plant at a specific location, may have been reported by several different observers, at different dates, or with slightly differing coordinates (depending on the method used to capture coordinates). Records will only be flagged as potential duplicates if they are for the same species, on the same date, with geographic coordinates within 100m of each other. These potential duplicates are then queried, to ensure that duplicate records by the same observer are not re-entered.; ; It is therefore important that fields such as date and location accuracy be taken into account when assessing individual BioNet-Atlas records.

Explanation

The BioNet Species sightings data collection was never intended to be representative of all species present at a particular location at a given time, and as such can never be complete. For areas where the results of detailed systematic surveys have been entered into the system, the Fauna Survey and/or Flora Survey modules can be interrogated for information about species presence/absence. However for other areas, BioNet Species sightings are only indicative of species presence (not absence). Whilst BioNet is the single largest database for flora and fauna sightings in NSW, it is not the only one. For more complete information it is recommended that Bionet sightings and survey records be supplemented with datasets from other Agencies and organisations, literature and on-ground surveys.

Conceptual Consistency

Explanation

All records entered into the Atlas require a minimum of fields to be populated (species name, date of observation, location description, coordinates, accuracy of coordinates, Datum, observer name and observation type). Records will not be accepted in the database if compulsory fields are missing, or if values are not valid.; ; Records undergo a further automatic validation check based on species distribution. If a record of a species occurs outside of its 'known accepted distribution', the record will be saved to a quarantine section of the database to be reviewed by OEH staff.

Absolute External Positional Accuracy

Explanation

All records are assigned an accuracy (in metres) to indicate how accurately the coordinates represent the true location of the sighting. The accuracy can vary from 10m to occasionally as much as 100,000m, depending on the method used to capture the coordinates (GPS, topographic map, street directory or internet). ; ; Locations are also manually checked prior to import to ensure the location description matches the coordinates and Datum.; ; Supply of BioNet-Atlas data is governed by OEH's Sensitive Species Data Policy ; http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/policiesandguidelines/SensitiveSpeciesPolicy.htm.; The locations of records for most species are made available at 'as-held' accuracy (i.e. with geographic coordinates as held in the BioNet-Atlas database). Some threatened species, however, are very sensitive to disturbance and exploitation. If precise locational information about these species was made public, it could increase the possibility of harm or loss. For species categorised as "sensitive", some or all locational information will not be disclosed depending on the species' status under the Policy (refer to the Sensitive Species Data policy for full details).

Non Quantitative Attribute Accuracy

Explanation

Records cannot be entered into Atlas if compulsory fields are missing, or if values are not valid. Both manual and automated attribute checks are undertaken before records are entered.; ; Species names are checked to ensure the Scientific and Common names match. Each record is assigned a 'Source' (i.e. whether a species record is a standard sighting, a voucher specimen, a specimen held in a museum or herbarium collection, a probable identification from survey methods Anabat or hair tube analysis, or a questionable record). Locations are manually verified onscreen and all other fields are checked to ensure values are in the required format (for fields that have domains, these are as listed in the Atlas Field Data Book). Any fields with missing or potential errors are queried with the observer prior to import.; ; While care is taken to ensure details of all records are entered as accurately as possible, given the range of data sources and levels of experience from observes, and variation in recording methods, it is not possible to guarantee that all species sightings are correct.
