Brief description

Tropical Data hub access tool for building EIS (environmental impact statements) to enable the reuse of research computed and observed species range data to inform both current and future environmental impact based on a variety of IPCC forecasted climate scenarios and models.  Which will: a. Allow users to select a region (bounding box), determine existing species and known biology, ranges etc.  This may involve links to the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA). b. Users can then select future time-periods and observer predicted species ranges with the bounding box and related regions. c.These data can be linked to associated models of species movement, distribution and nearby refugia. d.Searching for related EIS data and development of an index of local species vulnerability. e.The capacity to determine provenance information, record new observations of distribution, etc
