  • This service has been created specifically for display in the National Map and the chosen symbology may not suit other mapping applications. The Australian Topographic web map service is seamless national dataset coverage for the whole of Australia. These data are best suited to graphical applications. These data may vary greatly in quality depending on the method of capture and digitising specifications in place at the time of capture. The web map service portrays detailed graphic representation of features that appear on the Earth's surface. These features include the administration boundaries from the Geoscience Australia 250K Topographic Data, including state forest and reserves.

  • The Historical Bushfire Boundaries service represents the aggregation of jurisdictional supplied burnt areas polygons stemming from the early 1900's through to 2022 (excluding the Northern Territory). The burnt area data represents curated jurisdictional owned polygons of both bushfires and prescribed (planned) burns. To ensure the dataset adhered to the nationally approved and agreed data dictionary for fire history Geoscience Australia had to modify some of the attributes presented. The information provided within this service is reflective only of data supplied by participating authoritative agencies and may or may not represent all fire history within a state.

  • The Australian Coastal Sediment Compartments Web Service provide a hierarchical spatial classification relevant to the assessment of sediment movement in the Australian coastal zone, and represent a tool to assist coastal planning and management. Additional spatial data layers produced during the development of the compartments are provided for reference.

  • This web map service provides visualisations of datasets used as inputs into the analysis of prospective hydrogen production regions of Australia. The service has been developed using datasets sourced from the Department of Environment and Energy, PSMA Australia, Garrad Hassan Pacific Pty. Ltd., Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Department of Resources Energy and Tourism, Queensland Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation, NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, and Geoscience Australia

  • The Geology of the Northern Jetty Peninsula map service displays the shapefiles and tables of the basement geology of the Northern Jetty Peninsula in East Antarctica. This map service is derived from the map product ‘Geology of Northern Jetty Peninsula, Mac.Robertson Land, Antarctica'. Northern Jetty Peninsula, incorporating Else Platform (~140 km2) and Kamenistaja Platform (~15 km2), represents a mostly ice-free low-lying region located on the western flanks of the Lambert Graben. The region is underlain by granulite-facies Proterozoic gneisses and unmetamorphosed Permian sediments.

  • The data contained in this service is not authoritative and has not been updated since 2006. This web service contains the legacy data found in the Australian Marine Spatial Information System (AMSIS) between 2006 and 2015, with a currency date of 2006. To honour the original licensing arrangements with the data holders, only the WMS is available. Users will need to contact the agency responsible for the data to check current validity and spatial precision.

  • This service is the processing inputs that are used within the Route Planning geoprocessing service. This service is specifically for use within the Carbon Capture and Storage application.

  • This web map service provides visualisations of the datasets used as inputs into the analysis of potential for tholeiitic intrusion-hosted Ni-Cu-PGE sulfide deposits in Australia, and the resulting outputs. The datasets included in this service cover the four mineral system components incorporated in the conceptual model for the formation of tholeiitic intrusion-hosted Ni-Cu-PGE sulfide deposits : (1) energy sources or drivers of the ore-forming system; (2) crustal and mantle lithospheric architecture; (3) sources of ore constituents (i.e., Ni, PGE, Cu, S in magmatic systems); and (4) gradients in ore depositional physico-chemical parameters. The results of the analysis are published in the report "Potential for intrusion-hosted Ni-Cu-PGE sulfide deposits in Australia: A continental-scale analysis of mineral system prospectivity. http://dx.doi.org/10.11636/Record.2016.001".

  • This web map service shows the key Australian petroleum producing basins ranked by their potential for CO2 enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR), based on a study completed by Geoscience Australia in 2020. Basin rankings result from the assessment of six parameters: the API gravity of the oil, temperature, pressure, reservoir quality (porosity, permeability), nearby CO2 sources and existing infrastructure. Higher rankings indicate greater potential for CO2-EOR. For further information see: Tenthorey, E., and Kalinowski, A. 2022. Screening Australia’s Basins for CO2-Enhanced Oil Recovery. Proceedings of the 16th Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies Conference (GHGT-16) 23-24 Oct 2022. Available at SSRN: https://ssrn.com/abstract=4294743 or http://dx.doi.org/10.2139/ssrn.4294743.
