The Atlas of Living Australia (Atlas) is a national initiative to bring together rich information about Australian plants, animals, fungi and microorganisms, and make it publicly available online. The Atlas contains over 30 million occurrence records from a wide range of sources, as well as species pages, photos, distribution maps and mapping tools, national species lists, identification keys, heritage literature, and more.
It is a partnership between all Australian museums, herbaria and biological collections, CSIRO and the Commonwealth Government to help build a clearer picture of Australian biodiversity for researchers and managers, in fact anyone who would like to know more about the living world, identify species or understand their distribution. It’s easy to add your own sightings and photos to the Atlas and help to increase our knowledge and understanding of Australian biodiversity.

This application allows users to retrieve lists of species recorded within an area, and to view details of the species such as recorded distribution, scientific name, common names and images. It also allows users to submit species occurrence records with an image to the Atlas of Living Australia, and to view the latest images added to the Atlas.

Ultimate reference for species in the Australian region

This app taps the full Australian database of 35 million species observations (as of November 2012) so is excellent for finding out what is where and for finding out what species are in any area. The app also enables you to enter any observations and the data goes into the national database. The app is intuitive and easy to use, but I'd like it to pick up EXIF information from photos on data entry to save manual entry.

It would also be good to display more information about species from external sources rather than providing links to those resources.

A very neat app!

It's early days, but it is very good

A great concept, but needs to evolve (which I feel sure it will do with time), and it needs considerable improvement in the interface. However, I have found it very useful and very informative, although slow to scroll through selected types. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the fauna and flora of their area in Australia.

Needs improvements

Difficult to navigate, pages don't load properly so you can't scroll down and in this day and age with the amount of passwords and pins we need to remember, where is the "forgot password?" bit? I look forward to the improvements so that simply adding what you have seen isn't too difficult
