Points to Note

The SAL has no special arrangements in place with these services.
Please be aware that:

  • you are bound by the terms and conditions that you agree to when you use each site.
    They are all different and it is your responsibility to read what you are agreeing to in using these services.
  • each service uses different underlying technology.
    SAL tech staff cannot help you with accessing these sites outside of the Toni O’Neill Spatial Research Lab.

If you are aware of other services that could be useful, please let the SAL Tech Staff know so we can share it  🙂
