Tasmania's Marine Atlas

The Tasmania’s Marine Atlas (the ‘Atlas’) is an accessible web mapping platform that highlights the diversity, value and uses of Tasmania’s coast and ocean. It makes spatiotemporal information and meta-information relevant to marine planning, management and decision-making available to end-users, including researchers, government, industry, non-governmental organizations, and anyone with an interest in the Tasmanian marine environment.  The Atlas collates available information by connecting to curated databases using web-mapping services, and also includes information natively hosted at IMAS.

The Atlas is meant to facilitate broad access to relevant information, promote a holistic and inclusive approach to the sustainable use of marine resources, and support transparency in decision-making. In addition to the web-mapping platform, the Atlas contains features promoting ocean literacy designed to make complex marine topics more accessible to non-experts.
