Report covering the quality of environmental datasets now available

By on 19 July, 2011
A new report, with the impossibly long, but thoroughly descriptive, title Scientific information for making decisions about natural resource management – a report on the value, status and availability of key ABARES datasets is now available.
This report describes key scientific natural resource and social datasets held by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES). Fifty seven datasets relating to land use, land cover, vegetation, forests, climate, soil, salinity and water, social, fire, pests and invasive species were identified and assessed.
The report describes the value, status, discoverability and accessibility of the datasets, including metadata, and makes recommendations for ongoing improvements.
