Imagine that the ocean could be drained to reveal the landscape of the seafloor around Australia. Now imagine that we could overlay on this landscape a map of the various seafloor types and the ways that marine animals and plants are distributed across these seafloor types. Even better, imagine being able to easily visualize all these factors in relation to resource management boundaries or factors that place stress on marine environments.
