What will Australia in 2050 look like? What kind of environment will we need, and want? Using one or more CSIRO data sets, showcase how we will be able to build resilience for people and natural and built environments.
Our oceans are vital to the world’s economy and provide services for all Australians including food security, industries, tourism, and well-being. With climate change creating environmental pressures like sea-level rise, ocean acidification and threats to marine life, use one or more CSIRO data sets to connect all Australians to our oceans of the future.
The Data Access Portal (DAP) has more than 2,300 data and software collections across a range of disciplines.Access the DAP Developer tools
The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) has more than 85 million occurrences and more than 11,200 datasets.Access the ALA
The Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) is Australia’s land ecosystem observatory. This information is standardised, integrated and transformed into model-ready data.Access TERN
The AODN Portal provides access to Australian marine and climate science data.Access AODN
The Integrated Marine Observatory System (IMOS) is a fully-integrated, national system, observing at ocean-basin and regional scales, and covering physical, chemical and biological variables.Access data from IMOS
eReefs data is delivered through an interoperable information architecture. The system improves how data is described, discovered and accessed and adopts many of the ‘Linked Data’ principles.Access eReefs data
FishMap features compiled distributions for marine fishes inhabiting Australia’s continental shelf and slope waters including depth, fish group and location.Access the FishMap
