By continuing you are acknowledging that you have read, understood and will abide by the following Data licence, Disclaimer and Citation requirements.

Data licences: Each data set has its own data licence. Its your responsibility to check the licence for the data you wish to download, access or use. In general AusCover uses CC-BY or the mostly equivalent TERN-BY. You can find the licence for each data set either embedded in the data file (for netCDF/HDF data) or in the metadata record for the data set (follow the GeoNetwork link if available, otherwise the XWiki link, in the table below). If you find a data set that is missing or has an inconsistent licence then please let us know.
