Special guest speaker Donald Hobern, the Director of the Atlas of Living Australia, gave a special seminar entitled ‘Building the Atlas of Living Australia’
The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) is a partnership between Australian natural history collections and biodiversity research groups. It is developing systems to provide integrated access to all classes of biodiversity data (including names and classification, geospatial data, images, sequences, literature, identification tools and species interactions). The central component will be an information repository which catalogues all data sources and makes them available to support research, policy and education.
