About the Atlas
The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) is Australia’s national biodiversity database. Founded on the principle of data sharing – collect it once, share it, use it many times – the ALA provides free, online access to millions of occurrence records to form the most comprehensive and accessible data set on Australia’s biodiversity ever produced.
By aggregating biodiversity information and making it more available online, the ALA is assisting scientists, planners, managers and others to create a more detailed picture of Australia’s biodiversity. The ALA is used for research, environmental monitoring, conservation planning and management, education, and citizen science activities.
By enabling science, industry and decision makers to work more efficiently, we impact many diverse areas of Australian biodiversity research and sustainability practice.
We are an essential resource for biodiversity conservation, sustainable ecosystem development, new species discoveries, systematics (relationships between living things), taxonomy (naming and classification), digitisation of biological collections, natural resource management and environmental impact assessments.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a terrific app which has not kept up with the iOS updates. It no longer functions properly and does no scroll through all the wonderful flora and fauna on offer. This restricts you to only the animals on the fit on the first page (mostly those that start with the letter A as it is listed alphabetically!) such a shame as it was a brilliant app and worth of support.
Ultimate reference for species in the Australian region
This app taps the full Australian database of 35 million species observations (as of November 2012) so is excellent for finding out what is where and for finding out what species are in any area. The app also enables you to enter any observations and the data goes into the national database. The app is intuitive and easy to use, but I'd like it to pick up EXIF information from photos on data entry to save manual entry.
It would also be good to display more information about species from external sources rather than providing links to those resources.
A very neat app!
It's early days, but it is very good
A great concept, but needs to evolve (which I feel sure it will do with time), and it needs considerable improvement in the interface. However, I have found it very useful and very informative, although slow to scroll through selected types. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the fauna and flora of their area in Australia.
