Dynamic Landscapes RPA

Federation University Australia

Project Description

The Dynamic Landscapes RPA undertakes regionally relevant, world class research and knowledge translation. It also focuses on delivering environmental knowledge and management tools for landscapes in transition through human activities, such as mining and agriculture, and through the impacts of fire and a changing climate.

The Dynamic Landscapes RPA has been selected as the area of focus for the ANDS Collection Enhancement Partnership. Project goals will include bringing together and providing more effective access to data which has been collected through past FedUni research in areas such as flora and faunal surveys, soil health and soil moisture monitoring, water availability and climate data. CeRDI will assist by federating other relevant data through interoperable digital technologies to share and use these effectively for enquiry driven research and applications. Project objectives which will be achieved will include:

1. Consolidation of disparate data collections relevant to the Dynamic Landscapes RPA
2. Demonstration of integrated processes to support data storage, access and re-use as a potential model for future adoption across all FedUni RPAs
3. Support for tracking and monitoring the impact of establishing the Dynamic Landscapes RPA data collection
