The CATAMI Github Repository

The CATAMI Github repository contain some useful resources including the source for a web tool designed to help collate, display and analyse imagery collected for marine habitats. The tool source code and related components are available under a very liberal license. This tool was developed by a small team at Pawsey (then known as iVEC) and supported by Nectar.
