AIATSIS datasets

A priority for AIATSIS is to provide ways for the discovery of the histories, cultures, languages and heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The provision of datasets to explore and reuse in research and creative pursuits aims to support the resurgence of culture for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in all parts of the country.

AIATSIS describes the datasets by providing information about the version, licence, geospatial coverage, temporal scope, jurisdiction, language, and field of research. Additional metadata about the datasets include, format, status and update cycles.

This site is currently being developed. If you have any questions or would like to provide feedback about the datasets please contact us at We would also be very interested to hear about your use of the data.
