Roles and responsibilities

NatureMapr is supported by a comprehensive underlying security model that ensures the whereabouts of sensitive plant and animal species are safeguarded at all times.

NatureMapr provides several important security privileges that can be assigned to trusted individuals within the community and or government. These privileges provide nominated individuals with elevated privileges over and above a normal user to:

  • Support the management of important or problematic species
  • Support the management of a particular location
  • Support conservation work and/or research
  • Support project administration

Below is a summary of NatureMapr privileges and what each privilege entitles an individual to do:
