ALA4R is the first version of an R programming language package, which enables the R community to directly access data and resources hosted by the Atlas of Living AustraliaOur goal is to enable outputs (e.g. observations of species) to be queried and output in a range of standard formats so that extensive analyses can be done in R.

We encourage R users to test and build on this v1 of ALA4R.
