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.
