New website now live

The brand new A2O front end website for the data portal is up and running! The new website provides access to 585,503 audio recordings across 341 individual sensor points. The summary statistics for all A2O recordings are available here.

The A2O data portal is faster than the previous version and will allow changes to be made more easily and quickly in the future. These future changes will include the capability to download original audio files, allowing data to be citable with DOIs, annotations will be made exportable to the Atlas of Living Australia, and the listen and annotation tools will be completely rebuilt.

Many thanks for your patience as these updates have been implemented. Please feel free to explore the new site and look out for further improvements in the coming months.

Acoustic data now available for Bowra Wildlife Sanctuary

Acoustic data from the Australian Wildlife Conservancy’s Bowra Sanctuary is now available! Sensors have been collecting information across Bowra for the past couple of months, recording many of the property’s arid bird species. Soundscapes range from dry Mulga plains (Bowra Dry A and Bowra Dry B) to the creeks and waterholes dotted throughout this unique landscape (Bowra Wet A and Bowra Wet B).

Acoustic data now available for the Samford Ecological Research Facility (SERF)

Acoustic data may now be accessed for the Samford Ecological Research Facility (SERF). SERF is managed by the Queensland University of Technology, and affiliated with the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN). These are the first available recordings for the A2O, with acoustic sensors actively monitoring the soundscapes of eucalypt woodland (SERF Dry A and SERF Dry B) and notophyll vine forest (SERF Wet A and SERF Wet B) on the outskirts of Brisbane in South-East Queensland.
