IndexGeo Pty Ltd - Eco Companion catalogue

Node type

Commercial, Public input

Node description

The Eco Companion Australasia environmental resources catalogue is an assorted collection of dataset descriptions that are managed by diverse custodians. This content is expected from local community groups, commercial spatial data providers, individuals, non-government organisations, small government agencies, and the scientific community. Because the service is new, there is currently a small document collection.

The Eco Companion document management service provides Internet facilities for the description of geospatial datasets and other document types. Custodians with small numbers of dataset descriptions can publish through this ecologically-based document collection.

Editors oversee the content of the document collections to ensure consistency and reliability.
