The National Environmental Information Infrastructure project will design, develop and build a network to support the discovery, access, and re-use of environmental information.
Its initial focus will be guided by the Australian Government environmental information priorities, as well as key affiliated projects.
The infrastructure will be designed to enable environmental information to be widely provided and shared. It will achieve this by being interoperable while working alongside existing data management systems.
The reference architecture will be achieved through adopting data format information standards at various levels. This will harmonise data interchange between organisations, researchers and the community.
