On Wednesday and Thursday last week, colleagues from all around Australia discussed the varying uses of the Atlas of Living Australia and the ways in which its infrastructure, resources and data is being used now and into the future. After multiple presentations, an evening panel discussion and lots of rivetting questions and comments – the symposium was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. If you were not able to attend, the abstracts from each of the presentations can be uploaded here and we endeavour to make the presentations available on our website, so keep posted.
The Twitter hashtag for the event was #alass13 and while Twitter is still a relatively new medium for many folk, I thought I’d highlight some of the more useful tweets from our many avid tweeters in the audience. Including our Director’s very first tweet from his personal account – nice work.
Thanks to all those who tweeted throughout the symposium and kept the virtual world alive with discussion. If you’d like to learn more about using Twitter please feel free to email the Atlas team at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will point you in the right direction for help.
