WAMSI 2 - Kimberley Node - Project 2.1.1 - Human use patterns and impacts in the coastal waters of the western Kimberley
Aerial surveys were undertaken throughout the Kimberley for a 12-month period from November 2012 – October 2013. The three main survey areas incorporated into the sampling design were Camden Sound, Dampier Peninsula and 80 Mile Beach. Also Eastern Kimberley for one survey.
In total, 41 aerial surveys were completed throughout the Kimberley from November 2012 – October 2013. During this time period, several thousand photographic images were taken and examined and nearly 4,000 images showed evidence of human use. These images were used to classify and catalogue shore and boat-based recreational activity.
Data outputs are separated into a) processed data (Geodatabase of point data - Kimberley_Aerial_ASA and raster layers of density for the 2 survey areas - 80M_DensityOutputs and DP_DensityOutputs) b) raw data (folders containing .csv, shapefiles and .jpegs from each survey) and c) survey information (information about each survey e.g. date, time, pilot, observers, start, finish location etc.)
