Data is harvested from iNaturalist Australia to ALA daily. After processing, it is refreshed once per week.
Observations will come across to the ALA if they are:
- Shareable under a Creative Commons license
- In Australia
- Verifiable observations - those which are marked Needs ID or Research Grade
If an iNaturalist observation is updated with a new identification, image, or a changed location, the record in ALA will be updated as part of the regular data harvest.
If records are removed from iNaturalist, they will be removed from ALA.
