COORDINATE_PRECISION_INVALID - AtlasOfLivingAustralia/ala-dataquality Wiki
Indicates an invalid or very unlikely coordinate precision. The value is not a decimal number as expected, or it is unusually low or high for a margin of uncertainty.
The valid range is >=0 <=1 in decimal degrees.
Implications and caveats
- Coordinate precision refers to the number of decimal places used when supplying location coordinates. This used to compare the number of decimal places supplied in coordinates with those expected.
- This article helps to explain the various levels of accuracy for different numbers of decimal coordinates https://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/index.php/2170:_Coordinate_Precision
- Coordinate precision information should be provided as a decimal number.
Data custodian recommendations
Review the value given to ensure it refers to the number of decimal places used in the coordinates supplied.
