Revealing the diversity and health of Australia’s marine estate to support management.

AIMS’ mapping has pioneered the collection of long-term baseline data on the Great Barrier Reef and Australia’s North-West Shelf region through surveys of fish, corals, mangroves, planktonic communities and reefs.

We combine GIS data management with remote sensing techniques to help predict the likely presence of habitat. We then explore key locations with underwater equipment to validate these predictions.
