ALA Review of Online and Desktop Tools

Paul Flemons and John Tann from the Australian Museum have carried out an extensive review of software components which could feed into the development of the Atlas or which could be of benefit to data providers or users.

This impressive review has been made available as an online, editable website at Please feel free to suggest additional tools which should be included – or, better still, take the time yourself to add information on such tools (send an email to John Tann,, or Donald Hobern, to gain access). We hope that this will become an increasingly useful resource for a wide range of users.

The review can also be downloaded as a document including all information entered up to February 2008:
