A number of agencies including Land & Water Australia, Dairy Australia and Meat & Livestock Australia have capitalised on their investment in AANRO by using the underpinning information in AANRO to develop additional information products specifically tailored to their needs.

AANRO can provide a cost effective vehicle for developing and publishing an information product on the web for stakeholders because:

– we use a set of proven and flexible tools to develop flexible and easy to use information systems online

– you have direct access to your own information with the capability to retrieve, display, add, update, and delete information interactively online

– the information you have already contributed to AANRO has been edited and indexed to international standards and will be used as a starting point for development of a new product

– the AANRO data model is flexible and adaptable so that more information can be added to suit the needs of your organisation and your clients
