As a data user, what do I need to do to prepare for the change?
If you have been granted enhanced access to some datasets, your access might be affected by these changes. This is especially likely if you have been granted ‘intermediate’ access to datasets, i.e. better than public access but not full resolution download access with recorder names and attributes. All individual users with intermediate access to datasets have been contacted via e-mail to advise them to apply for full access to datasets if they still require the data.
Please note that any outstanding data access requests that were not dealt with by the October cut off point have been removed from the system.
Once the new system has been launched, you will need to log in if you want to download data. You will also need to log in if you want to see the details behind the records, such as record date, site name, recorder name and comments if available. If you are not logged in, you will only see squares on the map.
Important! Please check that the e-mail address associated with your NBN Gateway account is correct by logging into the Gateway and clicking on ‘my account’ in the top right corner of the screen.
Finally, please note that if your level of access does change, it will be a much simpler process to re-apply for access under the new system.
