  • Geoscience Australia is the nation’s trusted advisor on the geology and geography of Australia. In its role as the provider of fundamental geographic information for the nation, Geoscience Australia is coordinating new efficient and consistent approaches to cross-government location information supply chains to meet requirements for more detailed and frequently updated national data. This presentation will explore these approaches with a focus on how and why land, property and transport network information can be enabled to ultimately improve outcomes to meet the triple bottom line in the national context - Australia’s environment, its people and economic prosperity. In this presentation, Geoscience Australia will outline how it is collaborating with a wide range of stakeholders in response to increasing demands and expectations for detailed, timely, consistent and interoperable location information throughout Australia. The presentation will describe how existing vehicles for change such as the Foundation Spatial Data Framework, Open Data principles and the Location Index are being used to identify current and future information needs and gaps, examine existing supply chains and identify opportunities to lubricate the flow and integration of vital information underpinning important decisions and policy development.

  • The SDE Best Available Geographic Database (SBAGD) is a historic database comprising the GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 data and any updates that were made from 2008-2013. This vector data represents major topographic features and has been sourced through many programs such as the National Topographic Information Coordination Initiative (NTICI). The topographic data complies with the Topographic Data and Map Specifications for the National Topographic Database & NTMS Series 1:250 000 & 1:100 000 scale topographic map products version 6.0.

  • The SDE Transport Database (STRANSPORT) is a subset of the former SDE Best Available Geographic Database (SBAGD). STRANSPORT contains only the transport feature datasets and feature classes such as aviation, marine, road and rail. SBAGD is a historic database comprising the GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 data and any updates that were made from 2008-2013. This vector data represents major topographic features and has been sourced through many programs such as the National Topographic Information Coordination Initiative (NTICI). The topographic data complies with the Topographic Data and Map Specifications for the National Topographic Database & NTMS Series 1:250 000 & 1:100 000 scale topographic map products version 6.0. To use this dataset please contact the Spatial Platforms team (eGIS), spatialplatforms@ga.gov.au, and obtain an SDE login for use within your selected GIS software.

  • The SDE Topographic Product Database (STOPO) contains all the vector data from the previous TOPO250K, TOPO500K, TOPO_1M, TOPO_2_5M, TOPO_5M and TOPO_10M databases. SBAGD is a historic database comprising the GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 data and any updates that were made from 2008-2013. This vector data represents major topographic features and has been sourced through many programs such as the National Topographic Information Coordination Initiative (NTICI). The topographic data complies with the Topographic Data and Map Specifications for the National Topographic Database & NTMS Series 1:250 000 & 1:100 000 scale topographic map products version 6.0. To use this dataset please contact the Spatial Platforms team (eGIS), spatialplatforms@ga.gov.au, and obtain an SDE login for use within your selected GIS software.

  • The SDE Cartographic Database (SCARTO) is a subset of the former SDE Best Available Geographic Database (SBAGD). SCARTO contains only the cartographic feature datasets and feature classes such as annotation, graticules, framework boundaries, map indexes, marine hazard areas and points, physiography and vegetation. SBAGD is a historic database comprising the GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 data and any updates that were made from 2008-2013. This vector data represents major topographic features and has been sourced through many programs such as the National Topographic Information Coordination Initiative (NTICI). The topographic data complies with the Topographic Data and Map Specifications for the National Topographic Database & NTMS Series 1:250 000 & 1:100 000 scale topographic map products version 6.0.

  • The purpose of the Global Map is to accurately describe the present status of the global environment in international cooperation of respective National Mapping Organizations (NMOs) of the world. The map has features from the Global Map specifications.

  • This dataset has been developed by the Australian Government as an authoritative source of indigenous location names across Australia. The dataset is designed to support the accurate positioning, consistent reporting, and effective delivery of Australian Government programs and services to indigenous locations. The dataset contains Preferred and Alternate names for indigenous locations where Australian Government programs and services have been, are being, or may be provided. The Preferred name will always default to a State or Territory jurisdiction's gazetted name so the term 'preferred' does not infer that this is the locally known name for the location. Similarly, locational details are aligned, where possible, with those published in State and Territory registers. This dataset is NOT a complete listing of all locations at which indigenous people reside. Town and city names are not included in the dataset. The dataset contains names that represent indigenous communities, outstations, defined indigenous areas within a town or city, and locations where services have been provided. It is the intent of the custodians of this dataset to give point of truth information from the jurisdictions where possible. If you wish to provide feedback about a name contained in the dataset, an omission or the locational details shown, please contact the data manager through the AGIL mailbox giving the point of truth contact or link as the basis for the feedback. The dataset consists of three excel workbooks:- A) the field definitions B) the Location table which includes latitude, longitude, unique identifier(location code), state, date created, date retired and retired reason. Where possible, links to the jurisdictional points of truth. C) the Name table which includes location code, name code, date created, date retired, retired reason and name flag (preferred or alternate name).
