Get surveys

URL: https://apps.des.qld.gov.au/species/?op=getsurveys

Lists the surveys and their locations from the WildNet database that have been approved for release associated with a project or projects as specified by 'projids'.

Downloads may not work for projects that have thousands of surveys. You will need to download subsets of the data as described below.

WetlandMaps provides a map interface to display the data derived from Get sites, Get surveys and Species search functions with other spatial layers (such as protected areas and wetland mapping).

Mandatory Variables
projectids: Project Ids - Comma separated list of project ids. Use Get projects to access project IDs.

Optional Variables
bbox: A bounding box that defines a geographical area. Specified as top left, bottom right (e.g. latitude,longitude,latitude, longitude) in decimal degrees.
circle: A circle (buffered point) that defines a geographical area. Specified as the circle centre coordinates (in decimal degrees), radius (in metres), (e.g. latitude,longitude,distance).
f: The format of the response. There are 4 possible options; json, xml, kml and csv. Json is the default if 'f' is not set. If the output is spatial, GeoJson will be return for 'f=json' and KML will be returned for 'f=xml' or 'f=kml'.
max: Maximum Start Date - The latest date for a record to be returned.
min: Minimum Start Date - The earliest date for a record to be returned.
p: Location Precision - The distance in metres that indicates the accuracy of the records location.
pagecount: Page Count - The number of records to return on a page.
pageindex: Page Index - The page index to return.
proj: Include Project Details - This indicates if the project details are to be included in the output. The default is true.

Output Field Descriptions
Longitude: The longitude for the site in decimal degrees (Datum is GDA94).
Latitude: The latitude for the site in decimal degrees (Datum is GDA94).
SiteVisitID: The unique identifier for the site visit (survey) within the WildNet database.
StartDate: The date of the survey or the first date of the survey period.
EndDate: The last date of the survey period.
SiteID: The unique identifier for the site within the WildNet database.
SiteCode: The reference provided by the data custodian for the site.
LocalityDetails: Description of the site location if provided.
LocationPrecision: The precision of the coordinates of the site in metres.
ProjectID: The unique identifier for the project within the WildNet database.
ProjectName: The name of the project.
OrganisationID: The unique identifier for the organisation within the WildNet database.
OrganisationName: The name of the organisation associated with the project.
OrganisationAcronym: The acronym for the organisation associated with the project.
