Lineage The dataset was created by recording spatial location for a particular habitat on a handheld garmin GPS and completing a paper recording form, which was then entered into a spreadsheet. One entry for each spatial location, recording percentage cover of observed habitats as well as patch size. Photographs were also taken and these have been linked to the data, and exported into a geojson.
