Layer: Cetacean [whale and dolphin] Sightings [PWS] (ID: 27)

Name: Cetacean [whale and dolphin] Sightings [PWS]

Display Field: COM_NAME

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPoint

Description: This data set spatially depicts biological resources necessary for the response to an oil spill in Tasmanian State coastal waters as specified by the Oil Spill Response Atlas project. The need for identifying and recording the sighting of cetacean's is imperative for the management and protection of species in the event of an oil spill. This data set contains point locations of whale and dolphin sightings in the waters surrounding Tasmania, King Island, Flinders Island and small off shore islands around the state. Polygon data (reflectign density on 20km grid squares) was also recently added. Data have been collected from whale sightings from 1928 to the present dat (2004). The spread of data recorded is extensive along populated areas of coastline and coastal waters. It is also important to note that identification of species is difficult also when the data is sourced from people who do not have a professional base in the area and species are misidentified. The base data is currently held in AGD66 geographicals (ie Latitude Longitude).
