Data mobilisation

Data mobilisation

‘Data mobilisation’ is the process of establishing an automated mechanism for sharing data with the Atlas of Living Australia (Atlas). Due to the effort involved, it is appropriate for those datasets:

  • Which are frequently updated; and,
  • Where currency through the Atlas is important.

In cases where datasets are not updated frequently, data providers share their data with the Atlas by contacting the Data Management team and arranging to provide a dataset through other means; the Atlas loads the dataset when received.
