Atlas of Living Australia | | How-to-session: Intro to {galah} | Wed 17 August 1pm AEST | Free | National Science Week 2022

Atlas of Living Australia |

For National Science Week, we’re celebrating all things STEM! As Australia’s national biodiversity database, the Atlas of Living Australia delivers trusted data services for Australia, supporting world-class biodiversity research and decision-making. We store these data in a way that is open and accessible, but the ALA website is not the only way to access them!

Our R package {galah} gives you the tools to query the ALA directly and work with data in your preferred way. Join Dr Jenna Wraith, our ALA Training and Outreach Coordinator, as she teaches you step-by-step how to get started in {galah}.

Please note: some basic familiarity with RStudio is recommended.
