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

Our 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.
