About the Web Site

This website is the result of a collaborative project between the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative and the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA).

The Border Ranges Alliance is working with ALA in extending the Atlas Field Data Capture tools to include on ground activity planning, management, monitoring, evaluation and reporting.

The project aims to overcome some of the difficulties that arise through the use of different methods of recording activity data between groups which doesn't allow for collation of the data to see collective outcomes. For the Border Ranges Alliance, with a large number of groups, the project will allow a range of activities to be recorded in a consistent way.

How to use Project Forms

This site is for recording conservation or environmental activities. It uses "forms" for different types of activities. There is a "Project Management Form" that must be used for each project to tie all the activity forms together within a project. Each form within a project will contain the same Project ID code. The forms are found under the "Add Records" tab.

For example, the "Tiger Quoll Creek Restoration Project" includes weed control with supplementary tree planting at a site, as well as a community tree planting day. The forms to be used for this project would include the following forms:

  • Project Management Form
  • Activity - Community Event
  • Works - Tree Planting
  • Works - Weed Management
Each of these forms will have the same Project ID code "TQC2012".

If you undertake more than one community event or works activity during the project, a separate form will need to be completed for each one.

The Project ID code can be set by the project manager or site administrator. It could be a contract number or an abbreviation of the project title. It can contain letters and numbers.

You can then view all records that relate to one project by searching by the Project ID, in this case Project ID "TQC2012".
