Australia state of the environment 2016 (SoE 2016) launched in March 2017, is the fifth national assessment of the state of Australia’s environment. It reports on the current condition of, and likely outlook for, our environment.
Biotext has been involved throughout the development and production of this comprehensive report, which includes an examination of the drivers of environmental change; nine detailed thematic reports on atmosphere, built environment, heritage, biodiversity, land, inland water, coasts, marine environment and Antarctic environment; and an overview report.
SoE 2016 needed comprehensive editing, indexing, layout, proofreading, data visualisation, and delivery in HTML and print. The report was published on an innovative new digital platform to improve user interaction with the wealth of information and data presented. For more than a year, our writers, editors, designers, and web and data experts worked with authors and government staff on 2200 pages, 156 interactive maps, 210 interactive graphs, 362 accessible datasets, and 72 graded report cards with 1166 graded assessments, involving 18 expert lead authors, 23 peer reviewers and more than 500 contributors.
It has been a privilege to work on SoE 2016, and we congratulate the authors and everyone involved on a successful project.
