|Title||Vocabulary: EcoAssets Earth Science Features|
This is a previous release of the EcoAssets Earth Science Features dataset. This dataset is now accessible through the CSIRO Data Portal as part of the Aggregated Data: Environmental Monitoring and Observations Effort 2010-2023 dataset: https://doi.org/10.25919/2y9j-jk11.
Vocabulary for categorising Earth Science survey and monitoring efforts based on the features observed. This vocabulary is based on the Global Change Master Directory (GCMD, https://gcmd.earthdata.nasa.gov/KeywordViewer/) vocabulary, extended with terms from the TERN Feature Type vocabulary (http://linked.data.gov.au/def/tern-cv/68af3d25-c801-4089-afff-cf701e2bd61d) and modified to use taxonomic concepts URIs from the Australian National Species List (ANSL, https://biodiversity.org.au/nsl/) in place of the GCMD Earth Science > Biological Classification vocabulary. ANSL categories map more readily to biodiversity survey categories, since GCMD depends on a top-level division between vertebrates and invertebrates rather than offering an animal category.
The Dataset includes three files.
