Victorian Biodiversity Atlas fauna - 1 minute grid summary


This dataset and its metadata statement were supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and are presented here as originally supplied.

This layer summarises VBA fauna records against a standard grid of 1 degree longitude/latitude (GDA94).

Any VBA taxa record with its centre in a cell is counted as a record for that cell. The number of times a

taxon has been recorded in a cell is collated in the RECORDS column. The first date and last date that a

taxon has been recorded in a cell are also summarised. VBA data summarised against 10 and 5 minute

grids are also available in related datasets. VBA records with a spatial accuracy worse than +/- 1 km are

excluded from this layer.


This layer can be used to indicate general localities where wildlife have been recorded. It can also be used

as an index to assist in the analysis of the VBA_FAUNA25 and VBA_FAUNA100 layers. This layer

includes restricted records and can act as an alternative to VBA_FAUNA_RESTRICTED.

For the purposes of biodiversity management and conservation.
