BioCollect hubs provide a single point of access to projects which share a common theme. This means users don’t have to search through lots of unrelated projects. Hubs can be made for large organisations with many projects, large geographic areas, broad taxonomic groupings, or for a combinations of these.

Below is a sample of some of the existing hubs.
General BioCollect project hubs
Use these hubs to create or access projects in a general context. These are free to use and have very rich capability. Whilst you have a lot of flexibility in setting up your project, there are some aspects which cannot be customised.
The Australian Citizen Science Association (ACSA) hub.
- Search projects in Australia and all over the world
- Contribute data to help science
- Create your own project
- Invite public participation
A portal for all non-citizen science monitoring & assessment projects:
- Plot, transect and other complex method-based assessment & monitoring
- Share your survey data when you’re ready to
- Manage access
The NRM Works projects hub is a project management tool for environmental and ecological intervention activities including:
- weed/pest management
- heritage assessment & protection
- erosion management
- water/drainage management
Special purpose custom hubs
A hub which focuses on BioBlitz events in Australia. Listed projects are all citizen science projects and are also accessible via the ACSA project finder. This hub is intended to be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for people wanting to run BioBlitz events and includes a lot of support materials, an event calendar and other information.
A hub which focuses on biological control projects being run by a consortium of state agriculture agencies. The aim of these projects is to support the recording of populations of a range of biological control agents for numerous declared weed species and potentially other target species too. The hub itself and each project in this hub also contains a lot of useful information about species identification, management, etc. for both target and agent species.
A hub for the Brisbane City Council to support the community groups and environmental education centres that it is working with to improve the biodiversity and environmental information on which the council bases their planning and decisions.
A hub for the Redlands City Council region, to support a range of monitoring activities including for koalas, coastal raptors and veteran trees. These data contribute to informing and improving management and conservation actions.
The Tracks Hub provides the back-end database for “The Tracks App”. These partner applications were developed in collaboration with the Central Land Council to support Indigenous ranger groups throughout central Australia to consistently collect biodiversity data based on the presence of tracks and signs using traditional tracking methods. The Hub provides a central database through which this information across many groups can be shared and analysed.
A single project hub being run by the Wiluna Rural Community School to support their environmental education programme. The project allows school participants to collect species and environmental observation data and to use it for a variety of learning outcomes.
A single project hub being run by the Leonora District High School to support their environmental education programme. The project allows school participants to collect species and environmental observation data and to use it for a variety of learning outcomes.
A hub for the Vanuatu Environmental Science Society to create and manage their data collection projects.
