Since 2013, the open-source software platform initially developed by the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) has seen increasingly wider adoption by other GBIF nodes around the world. This project will support what has now become an annual workshop for the Living Atlases community.
This project will seek to strengthen the international community of practice by supporting the creation of an official website, documenting future ALA-based platforms and organizing a monthly call between developers and organizers.
The event will help motivate new and experienced users alike by providing a forum for exchanging ideas and improvements from other countries and projects. New users can increase their understanding of the infrastructure’s potential, while existing users can share doubts and ideas, resolve technical issues and press on with developing their national data portals.
