Biodiversity Information Systems (HB)
Atlas of Living Australia (ALA)
National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS)
The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) will be a unique informatics platform that underpins the Integrated Biological Systems capability of NCRIS. The ALA will be an authoritative, freely accessible, distributed and federated biodiversity data management system that links Australia’s biological knowledge with its scientific reference collections and other custodians of biological information.
The CPBR will be contributing to the ALA in both technical information management infrastructure and in species level biodiversity information content. This includes information on plant names, plant occurence and distribution, plant descriptions, plant identification and plant images.
