Title: Flora Atlas N.T.
Custodian:Department of Environment, Parks and Water Security
Database of all flora records that are managed by the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment. Records are derived from the NT Vegetation Site Database and HOLTZE (N.T. Herbarium specimen) database and NT Weeds database.
The records may be viewed in our web mapping application, NR Maps. nrmaps.nt.gov.au/nrmaps.html
The Flora records are displayed as 5 data layers, described as follows;
Native Flora: Species that occur or have occurred naturally in the Northern Territory region, ecosystem or habitat without human introduction
Threatened Flora: Any species classified as either critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable under the EPBC Act or TPWC Act
Significant Flora: Any species classified as either Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable, Near Threatened, Data Deficient under either the EPBC Act or TPWC Act.
Restricted Range Flora: Any species with a very restricted distribution in the Northern Territory
Introduced Flora: Species that are not native and have been accidentally or deliberately transported to the Northern Territory by human activity
A checklist of NT Flora taxa is also available to the public. See Supplementary Information in this metadata record.

Lineage:Information has been collected from formal field surveys and reference material.
Positional Accuracy:The accuracy of all data needs to be treated with caution and varies according to the source and age of the data.
The majority of data is typically accurate to 100/1000 m. New data is typically accurate to 10 m and some older records have been rounded to the nearest degree. The accuracy of the record is sometimes indicated in the 'Precision' field for each record.
Completeness:The Flora Atlas is updated with new records approximately every 12 months.
