There are many projects that SeaMap Tasmania provides information to. An example of the diverse range of projects that our habitat and bathymetric data is utilised for is listed below:

  • RedMap, a new and interactive website, invites the Tasmanian community to spot, log and map marine species that are uncommon in Tasmania, or along particular parts of our coast.

  • Marine Biodiversity Hub: The Marine Biodiversity Research Hub is a collaboration between the University of Tasmania, CSIRO, Geoscience Australia, the Australian Institute of Marine Science and Museum Victoria. The Hub will analyse the patterns and dynamic of marine biodiversity to determine the appropriate units and models for effectively predicting Australia’s marine biodiversity. It will develop and deliver the tools needed to manage Australia’s marine biodiversity.

  • The Mosaic Map: NRM initiative to map Australias marine habitats.

  • EonFusion: SeaMap Tasmania  provided testing datasets for the development of EonFusion, software for temporal and spatial analysis.

  • OzCoasts: SeaMap Tasmania data features on the OzCoasts websites as one of the leading projects in coastal marine habitat mapping.

  • State of the Environment Reporting: Since the establishment of the SeaMap Tasmania project in 2000 we have contributed to the coastal and marine indicatiors in the State of the Environment Reports. These indicators are a measure of the extent and condition of coastal and marine habitat using physical habitat type and biodiversity and other biological data as indicators. Coastal and marine habitat types include salt marshes, sandy beaches, rocky shores, intertidal mudflats, seagrass beds, soft-sediment bottoms, sponge 'gardens', algal beds, subtidal or rocky reefs, offshore islands and seamounts.
