  • Lee Belbin Advisor to The Atlas of Living Australia
  • Phase 1Complete
  • AIMTo develop an authoritative, freely accessiblebiodiversity data management system for the Australian region
  • AUDIENCE • The public • Education (primary to post graduate) • Land use planners • Land managers • Environmental consultants
  • Information about Species E.g., description, images, “Where does or could this species occur ”, identification, classification etc
  • Species Pages
  • Information About Areas E.g., species lists/observations/richness, climate, soil, salinity, land use, land cover, topography, chemistry, ecosystem etc (~400 layers) •Terrestrial and marine •‘Environmental’ and ‘Contextual’
  • Link Species and Environment E.g.1: What is the environmental associated with this species? E.g.2: Where in the Australian does this environment condition occur?
  • Precipitation - driest quarter Precipitation – seasonality2030A1BMk35M: Evaporation – month Radiation – seasonality2030A1BMk35M: Precipitation - driestquarter Radiation - warmest month2030A1BMk35M: Precipitation - equinox seasonality ratio Moisture Index - highest quarter mean2030A1BMk35M: Precipitation - spring or autumn season2030A1BMk35M: Water stress index -index max Weathering intensity month
  • Design Principles • Open source and data • Different interfaces for different communities of use • Use of international standards (e.g., TDWG, OGC, W3C ) & Best Current Practice (there are so many standards ) • Atlas functions are web services • Maximize potential applications through comprehensive and consistent integrated biological and environmental data and processes • Tools and services that demonstrate the value-add from integrated data • Extensive support for data import and export • Ability for anyone to annotate any data
