Environmentally sensitive data
DEWNR operates under an open access policy and endeavours to deliver biological data in its most precise and complete form whenever possible. When the benefits of delivering precise data are outweighed by the risks DEWNR environmentally sensitive data management procedures are applied.
The SA Environmentally Sensitive Data Register
currently contains a number of species which have their coordinates (latitude and longitude) denatured to one decimal (~10km) for public distribution. These records also have associated location descriptions withheld. Anyone wanting access to more precise information must apply at DEWNRBioDataRequests@sa.gov.au
Note: Only a proportion of South Australian threatened species have been listed on the Register as many are not considered at risk through access to accurate location information.
