All scientific data collected by the Australian Antarctic program (AAp) are eventually described in the Catalogue of Australian Antarctic and Subantarctic Metadata (CAASM). CAASM can be used to search through AAp data descriptions, and it also provides links to access publicly available datasets, which can either be immediately downloaded or obtained from the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC).
This database contains information pertaining to the negatives taken by the laboratory since its inception. Both scanning and transmission electron micrographs are catalogued within this database.
Among other things, the database includes a large number of images of protists.
The URLs provided link to a marine specimens database, and a terrestrial and limnetic specimens database.
Approximately 90% of the negatives have been archived, of these a very limited selection have been scanned and catalogued in the database. The data are of variable quality.
Data are stored digitally in an ORACLE database. Archived in non digital form also (photographic negatives). Data available in both digital form (scanned images) and non digital forms (photographic negatives). See the investigator for details.
Marine species distribution data are published to SCAR-MarBIN, OBIS and GBIF. Terrestrial and limnetic species distribution data are published to GBIF.
