Simply stated, the goal of the Australian Bird Species Distribution Project (ABSDP) is to model the effect of climate change on Australian bird populations.

This modelling is important to both climatological and zoological researchers, and for policy making in government and elsewhere with respect to land care, conservation planning, and similar areas.

Feeding accurate input data to the modelling process is essential for good results, and to that end this project also includes mechanisms to allow expert reviewers to vet species occurrence records, a process that has previously been laborious and difficult to share.
