  • Geoscience Australia have used Workflow Manager to significantly improve the publication of OGC-compliant web services from the agency. The creation of web service publication workflows has streamlined the process and made it more transparent to users across business and technical teams. The process continues to be refined as bottlenecks are now easily identifiable. Our Workflow Manager web application means that managers and all users can now track the progress of their services. Workflow Manager has been a great solution for Geoscience Australia to better manage our web services publication workflow. The process used to require a word document to be sent around to various individuals in the agency filling in their parts at different stages of the process. When staff wanted to find out exactly where in the process their web service was, it would take numerous emails and phone calls. These word documents were stored in various different locations on our network which made it difficult to be able to find that document when needed. Workflow Manager meant we could now store all the information for each web service in a database. We have used the extended properties functionality to store the information that was recorded in the word document. Utilising the workflow manager service meant we were able to create our own web application using Angular JS so staff do not have to have ArcGIS installed on their computers; this is ideal for managers who want to track the progress of their web service but don¿t use ArcGIS. We have created a web application that can be reused for other Workflow Manager workflows that we create, that do not have a requirement to interact with ArcGIS desktop.

  • This document details the methods and results of the project Adelaide LiDAR Classification and Derived Products¿ performed by RPS for Geoscience Australia in 2013. Lineage and Accuracy Statements for ANZLIC metadata documents for each of the project deliverables are included. Airborne LiDAR data was acquired over Adelaide in September 2008 and North Adelaide in September 2011. Differences in the level of classification reduced the ability to integrate the data into an accurate, seamless and consistent coastal DEM suitable for detailed modelling the potential impacts of coastal inundation or riverine flooding. The objective of this project was to reclassify both the 2008 and 2011 point clouds to ICSM Level 3 and derive hydro flattened 1m bare earth DEMs and; 0.25m cartographic contours, all inline with the ICSM LiDAR Acquisition Specifications. Figure 1. Adelaide LiDAR Reclassification 2012 overview map The LiDAR The LiDAR was provided as tiled LAS files. RPS did not apply any vertical or horizontal adjustments to the LiDAR and is unable to comment on the spatial accuracy of the point cloud. The deliverables were: Classified ICSM Level 2 and Level 3 point clouds in LAS format 1 metre DEMs in ESRI Binary grid format 0.25 metre contours in ESRI Shape format Break lines in ESRI Shape format. This report All files were named according to the ICSM file naming specifications.

  • Exploring for the Future (EFTF) is a four-year geoscience data and information collection programme that aims to better understand on a regional scale the potential mineral, energy and groundwater resources that are concealed under cover in northern Australia and parts of South Australia. This factsheet explains one of the activities being undertaken to collect this data and information.

  • These files are the source code for the original eCat system designed by Lockheed. This system has been superseded April 2016) by GA's own eCat catalogue system powered by GeoNetwork. This dataset archives source code that is no longer to be worked on.

  • Digital Earth Australia (DEA) will build on the globally recognised innovation, the Australian Geoscience Data Cube; winner of the 2016 Content Platform of the Year at the Geospatial World Leadership Awards. DEA translates almost 30 years of Earth observation satellite imagery into information and insights about the changing Australian landscape and coastline, providing a ground-breaking approach to organising, analysing, and storing vast quantities of data. From sustainably managing the environment to developing resources and optimising our agricultural potential, Australia must overcome a number of challenges to meet the needs of its growing population in a time of increased climate variability. DEA will deliver a unique capability to process, interrogate, and present Earth observation satellite data in response to these issues. It will track changes across Australia in unprecedented detail, identifying soil and coastal erosion, crop growth, water quality, and changes to cities and regions. The following products provide examples of how, by providing easy access to free and open Earth observation data, DEA will unlock innovation and capability across government, industry, and the research community.

  • Following the recommendations from the UNCOVER post-summit technical workshop on cover-thickness in 2014, Geoscience Australia (GA) and its collaborative partners have carried out extensive benchmarking of various geophysical techniques and inversion methods for estimating cover-thickness over drill sites.

  • The Australian continent is well endowed with a vast array of different mineral commodities whose discovery and development are critical to the national economy. The continent is made up of a number of cratonic centres and intervening mobile belts, both of which are overlain by a series of basins many of which host world-class mineral systems. The focus of this UNCOVER workshop is to better understand the sedimentary basin-hosted Cu-Pb-Zn-U mineralisation system considered to have great potential in Australia.
