Accessible

Open-access, collaborative and curated


The Tropical Data Hub, based at James Cook University, is a toolkit enabling researchers and the community to collaborate on information relating to the tropics.

The toolkit aims to be the definitive source of information relating to the tropics, both within Australia and internationally, complementing existing data repositories.  Information available relates to the physical and natural environment, societies and communities, and tropical economies. The use of carefully-curated and comprehensive metadata ensures that the TDH is readily accessible to governments, researchers and the business sector.
