The Allen Coral Atlas is a game-changing coral conservation tool powered by Arizona State University and developed in partnership with Planet, University of Queensland, the Coral Reef Alliance and Vulcan, and coral reef scientists, universities, NGOs and private entities.

Its goal is to assist stakeholders ranging from local communities to regional and national governments to reach their coral reef conservation goals. With the Atlas, coral conservationists, reef managers and scientists have access to information that has never before been available at this scale, including high resolution coral reef habitat maps, real time bleaching monitoring, and expanding monitoring innovations.
