Title: Coastal bird habitats on the Victorian coast (light/generalised version)
Anzlic Id: ANZVI0803005532
Custodial Program: Marine Pollution (DEDJTR)
Custodian: Department of Transport
Abstract: This layer identifies bird habitats in the Victorian coastal region. The layer is a simplified polygon coverage with the polygon areas representing the main area of the respective bird habitats. Sites were identified from a broad range of published and unpublished sources of information and from personal communications made by experts in the field. In 2015 some additional locations were added with data from Birdlife Australia Shorebird 2020 Data. This dataset was formerly know as SHOREBIRD HABITAT but was renamed as it contains sites for seabirds and other birds.

Maintainence and Update Frequency: As required
Stored Data Format: DIGITAL - ESRI ArcSDE layer
Available Format(s) Types: Digital - all major formats available
Lineage: Primary & Derived
Positional Accuracy: The horizontal and vertical accuracy of the site locations have not been verified in the field. These polygons represents the primary habitat areas, but bird species may also move into adjacent or surrounding areas depending on daily weather conditions, winds, variations in beach environments etc
Atribute Accuracy: Attributes have been verified by MAFRI.
Logical Consistency: n
Data Source: Information was mainly derived from databases maintained by the Arthur Rylah Institute. Other information has been derived from published reports and also personal observations of bird observers, coastal rangers and other relevant coastal management personnel. Sources of data on species and habitats are identified in the BIRD_EXPERTS.DBF. In 2015 some additional locations were added with data from Birdlife Australia Shorebird 2020 Data.
