Data and information management toolkit

Australia's National Land and Water Resources Audit and ANZLIC Natural Resources Information Management Toolkit is a set of modules to help groups "discover, access, visualise and manage their data and information."

The "contemporary view of sustainable management of natural resources is that it is best achieved by ... involving the development of strong cooperative partnerships between government bodies, the community, on-ground land managers and educational institutions." This implies that each of these groups has to be able to effectively manage data and information.

"The Toolkit has been designed to provide universal principles of best practice for data and information management." It has a particular emphasis on capacity building and spatial data - though the principles apply much wider.
