Find data

The A2O provides data for hundreds of acoustic sensors across seven Australian ecoregions. The A2O data include acoustic recordings collected by site sensors as well as site information, such as vegetation cover, landform, disturbance and photopoints. These data are available for use under CC BY 4.0 licence.
