Atlas of Living Australia
Title: Atlas of Living Australia
Creator: Hobern, Donald [Director]; et al.
Abstract: The Atlas of Living Australia is a five-year project funded under the Australian Government’s National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). Its mission is to develop a biodiversity data management system which will link Australia’s biological knowledge with its scientific and agricultural reference collections and other custodians of biological information. This system should be: (*) Authoritative - guiding users to the most relevant data resources and well-researched information for each species; (*) Freely accessible - delivering services, tools and content for free use by all; (*) Distributed and federated - integrating existing systems and networks to bring together the most current and complete content. The project aims are: (*) To integrate information on all Australian species, including data on specimens held by Australia’s natural history collections and data from field observations of living organisms; (*) To support the management and integration of biological data from all areas of research (molecular to ecological); (*) To develop search interfaces and web services to facilitate discovery of biological information resources and to support the use of biological data in scientific research, policy-making and education; (*) To ensure that data relating to Australian organisms is well-managed for present needs and organised to meet future information requirements.
