Implications and caveats

Severity: Error

Coordinates for the record are not in the same datum as the rest of the coordinates in the system. This can result in a location shift of varying distance and direction relative to other points

Data Custodian Recommendations

review coordinates and datum provided, consider converting the coordinates to WGS84 before load into the ALA
