Wetland inventories are used to record standardised data about wetlands. Inventory data may be generated from available data sources (e.g. tenure, climate, population, land use) or collected through surveys (e.g. flora, fauna, water quality) involving the use of equipment and specialised field techniques. Wetland mapping is a key element used to populate wetland inventories.
The Wetland Information Capture System (WIC) is an online information capture system that allows approved users to contribute data to the wetland inventory database and also provides some basic validation checks for data uploaded from the field survey proformas.
A wetland inventory database has been developed to bring data from Queensland together. All data is spatially referenced (latitudes and longitudes) so it can be viewed and queried using WetlandMaps, WetlandSummary or Wildlife Online.
The wetland inventory database is designed to store data from on-ground inventories as well as a range of other datasets and spatial layers, e.g. water quality data, fauna surveys etc.
If you are the custodian of a wetland dataset that you would like included, please contact WetlandInfo via the feedback link below.
