Requests for digital information
DAA has changed its method of enabling clients to obtain digital data from the Register. Provision of digital data from the Aboriginal Sites Register was subject to a relatively lengthy administrative process that usually took about five days. The new process follows the same principles as before within an on-line environment.
Please Note: In order to use the data downloaded you must have a mapping or GIS system, for example, Map Info, Microstation, ArcView or ArcGIS. If you do not have a mapping system such as these the same information can be viewed through the following web atlases:
New online process
The aim of the new process is to make it easier for clients to obtain up-to-date data. To facilitate easier data access clients will now need to:
- Read the Licensing Information related to the Aboriginal Sites Register, and the Digital Data Licence.
- Agree with the terms and conditions of the licence.
- Enter their address and email details in an on-line form.
- Select, from a list, appropriate datasets. (Metadata will be available for each dataset.)
- Copy their selected datasets within a standard download procedure.
DAA will send regular emails reminding clients that they should update their data. By making the download process easier, the new process encourages clients to update more regularly their copy of the sites data. The intended outcome of this process is that by using more up-to-date data clients will be able to make more informed decisions.
Please contact the Manager, Heritage and Family Information Unit on (08) 9235 8143 for further information regarding digital data.
