Lineage Data was originated as part of the environmenal baseline survey commissioned by Premier Oil Ltd. The original datasets (FK-PREMIER_344 and FK_PREMIER-345) were brought together to form a unique dataset in which the land and boat surveys are identifiable but standardised to a 300 metre transect. The land-based data was standardised by combining three adjacent 100 m sections and then interpolating a waypoint in the middle of the 'new' 300 m section. A few points recorded on Kidney Island in December 2015 have also been included.The shape file contains the positions of the sightings, derived by handheld GPS, the number of birds counted, and if there were no birds. All the birds are coded and a excel file with codes is provided along with the GIS data layer.
