  • This service provides Australian surface hydrology, including natural and man-made features such as water courses (including directional flow paths), lakes, dams and other water bodies. The information was derived from the Surface Hydrology database, with a nominal scale of 1:250,000. The National Basins and Catchments are a national topographic representation of drainage areas across the landscape. Each basin is made up of a number of catchments depending on the features of the landscape. This service shows the relationship between catchments and basins. The service contains layer scale dependencies.

  • This web service delivers metadata for onshore active and passive seismic surveys conducted across the Australian continent by Geoscience Australia and its collaborative partners. For active seismic this metadata includes survey header data, line location and positional information, and the energy source type and parameters used to acquire the seismic line data. For passive seismic this metadata includes information about station name and location, start and end dates, operators and instruments. The metadata are maintained in Geoscience Australia's onshore active seismic and passive seismic database, which is being added to as new surveys are undertaken. Links to datasets, reports and other publications for the seismic surveys are provided in the metadata.

  • The National Areas of Interest Layer for Seabed Mapping and Biodiversity Characterisation is an active WFS sustained by the Areas of Interest functionality of the AusSeabed Survey Coordination Tool (ASB SCT). The redevelopment of the functionality and tool were supported by in-kind investments from AusSeabed, FrontierSI, and the National Environmental Science Program Marine and Coastal Hub (MaC Hub) under a scoping project agreement. Objective: The Areas of Interest functionality allows organisations and communities to publish their seabed data needs through the AusSeabed portal as part of the Areas of Interest layer. When different organisations identify the same regions as Areas of Interest, it helps generate understanding of the regions where there is the greatest cumulative need for data. This will help prioritise the highest value areas for data acquisition or legacy data release. It will also allow different groups to see where they have common priorities and increase opportunities for collaboration.

  • This web service provides access to the National Liquid Fuel Facilities Datasets, representing the spatial locations of all known liquid fuel depots, refineries, terminals and petrol stations located within Australia, all complemented with feature attribution.

  • This web service provides access to the National Dam Walls dataset and presents the spatial locations of major dam walls located within Australia, all complemented with feature attribution.

  • This web service provides access to the Waste Management Facilities dataset and presents the spatial locations of all the known waste management, recycling and reprocessing facilities within Australia, all complemented with feature attribution.

  • Australia - Offshore Minerals Act 1994 - Mineral Blocks - epoch 2014a. This service displays the Australian Mineral Blocks - Aligned with the current Australian Maritime Boundary Dataset. Refer to the metadata of the geodatabase for a detailed abstract relating to the data.

  • Petroleum Blocks cut to the AMB 2014a epoch. The service contains the Blocks as defined under Section 33 (3) of the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006. Coverage includes indicative areas of coastal waters and land, within the constitutional limits of the States and territories.

  • 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.

  • This service delivers data from Geoscience Australia's Petroleum Systems database, a compilation of information from summary reports on petroleum systems by basin across Australia, integrated with data from other Geoscience Australia databases including provinces, stratigraphy and boreholes. The data provided by this service is intended for use in the Petroleum Systems Summary tool on the Geoscience Australia Portal. The tool's aim is to provide high-level information of the current understanding of key petroleum systems for areas of interest and assist geological studies by summarising and interpreting key datasets related to conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon exploration. Each petroleum systems summary includes a synopsis of the basin and key figures detailing the basin outline, major structural components, data availability, petroleum systems events chart and stratigraphy, and a précis of the key elements of source, reservoir and seal.
