The Coral Triangle Atlas (CT Atlas) is an online geographic information system (GIS) database, providing governments, nongovernment organizations, and researchers with a view of spatial data on a regional scale.

Data on fisheries, biodiversity, natural resources, and socioeconomics have been collected for decades by scientists and managers working in different parts of the Coral Triangle region. However, to date, little of this information has been aggregated into region-wide layers to provide an overview and support management planning and decision making at a regional level.

This CT Atlas project will improve the efficiency of management and conservation planning in the region by giving researchers and managers access to spatial information. They will be encouraged to share their data to complete the gaps, therefore reducing duplicate data collection efforts and providing the most complete and most current data available.

The CT Atlas is the first attempt to collate and integrate spatial data at a regional scale for the coastal and marine regions, resources, and people of the Coral Triangle. It builds upon previous efforts to compile data at national and subnational levels, recognizing the pivotal role of GIS for decision making and resource management.
