Showcasing Federation University Australia’s research; Biodiversity survey

Federation University Australia

Project Description:

This project will make accessible via Research Data Australia (RDA) a number of datasets in areas of particular interest and value to the University. The overall project aim is to expose a number of data collections which showcase research within the University. This will in turn strengthen the reputation of FedUni researchers within the broader research community, increase opportunities for collaboration, and promote University research which collects unique resources.

To achieve this aim, the project will collect, describe and make available research data in this significant area:

Biodiversity: Surveys of wildlife by two researchers offer an opportunity to contribute unique scientific data as a foundation for future data gathering related to biodiversity by University researchers. They will also provide the basis for promotion within the University of the opportunities for visualisation of such data as an aid to its use and re-use. The processes and procedures developed to enable this will improve data and metadata capture, storage and discoverability. It is hoped these datasets will form the basis for a wider consideration and implementation of open research data from early stages by researchers, including HDR students, as a foundation for sustainable best research practice.

Data Type:

Geospatial data, bird sightings
