QRES - Queensland RE Description Search Tool app
QRES - Queensland RE Description Search Tool
This app is primarily designed for field workers in remote areas (fully offline) and provides a more powerful search function than is available online through official channels.
Queensland is well known for its bright sunny days. Therefore, the app's colour scheme is designed for maximum visibility in sunshine. Although, actual visibility will depend to a large extent on your display type.
Regional ecosystems comprise three numbers separated by periods. The first number represents the bioregion. The second number is the Land Zone and the third identifies the vegetation community. For details see - https://www.qld.gov.au/environment/plants-animals/plants/ecosystems/descriptions/framework
Searches can include complete or partial RE numbers: e.g. "6.7." would limit the search to the Mulga Lands (bioregion 6) and Land Zone 7 (Cainozoic duricrusts). Adding other terms such as botanical names will further limit results.
Searches can include:
1) multiple RE numbers (e.g. 6.5. 6.7.), and/or
2) descriptive text (e.g. Cainozoic), and/or
3) botanical names (e.g. Acacia aneura)
