CSIRO's Data Access Portal (DAP) provides access to digital asset collections that have been published across a wide range of disciplines. Collections contain descriptor fields (called metadata) which give information about the digital asset as well as the files.

There are a variety of ways that you can find collections through the DAP.

You can find data by:

This is the basic keyword search function that can be accessed by clicking on CSIRO Data Access Portal in the top left of the DAP or by clicking the Search tab from anywhere within the DAP. Keyword search works by searching for a single word or a string of words (phrase). Each word, a combination of the words, or all of the words are used to search the DAP. A Basic search will search the complete database of metadata records.
