Welcome to the New South Wales Node of the Australian Coastal Atlas!
The Australian Coastal Atlas is a national network of marine and coastal agencies all working
together to provide information to the public over the WWW.
The New South Wales Node of the Australian Coastal Atlas uses software developed
for the ICMISS
framework. ICMISS was developed by the NSW Natural Resources Information Management
Steering Group to view spatial data.
To use the NSW Coastal Atlas software you will need either Netscape or IE version 4.4 or higher.

The Australian Coastal Atlas is a network of Agencies around Australia called "State Nodes". When all the Nodes are installed with the
Australian Atlas software, data from each State may be viewed through the WWW. More data is continually being added! If you would like
to have your data displayed, please contact your State Node.
The Australian Atlas software is currently under development and is continually being updated with new features.
Information displayed by the Atlas, or extracted from any associated databases is for demonstration purposes only. As such,
no assessment should be made on the information currently provided.
