The auSEABED was created by Dr. Chris Jenkins, a former staff member of School of Geoscience, to describe the materials of the Australian Maritime Region - in all, an area comprising 1/12 of the earth's globe. Because of Australia's relatively small population base and inadequate funding for at-sea science, maximum use of existing data had to be made to achieve a workable mapping. This motivated research into the use of datasets that were diverse in their methods, navigation, technologies, aims, standards, formats - and whether numeric or linguistic. The research resulted in a data mining system designed especially for the seabed. These web pages describe the digital GIS coverages that are now available for the seabed materials of the Australian maritime areas.
