The Eco-Informatics Facility has developed the Australian Ecological Knowledge and Observation System () to store rich contextual ecological data and is accessed via a sophisticated online . The Portal enables browsing, searching, viewing and retrieval of many different types of ecological data systematically collected at the sampling unit level (plot, quadrat, transect, trapping array, tissue sample). Datasets can be referenced in ÆKOS with a metadata description only, or a metadata description with an attached opaque file such as an Excel spreadsheet, or the data within a significant dataset can be fully integrated and federated, with contextual information describing the data added so that researchers can assess its fitness for purpose and reuse. Fully ingested and integrated data is accessible at the sampling unit level (e.g., number per quadrat) and this enables selected records from many datasets to be combined and downloaded via a shopping cart. Data are free and openly accessible under Creative Commons licences. Some data (
