  • This web service provides access to the Major Power Stations, Transmission Substations and Electricity Transmission Lines datasets. These datasets present the spatial locations of all known features in Australia.

  • 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.

  • This dataset contains the limit and extent of Northern Australia as defined by the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility Act 2016 (https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/C2021C00228) and Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility Amendment (Extension and Other Measures) Act 2021 (https://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/bd/bd2021a/21bd062).

  • The Marine Survey Multibeam Bathymetry Web Map Service contains the highest-resolution multibeam bathymetry grids available for download on Geoscience Australia's website. These bathymetry grids were collected over numerous multibeam survey programs conducted in Australian mainland and Antarctic waters by both Geoscience Australia and our collaborators. Layers are grouped by survey or region and where available include both the Geoscience Australia and vessel survey identification numbers that contributed to the bathymetry grids. Bathymetry grids have been rendered over a rainbow colour-ramp with minimum and maximum depth values unique for each survey. These values are specified in each survey's layer description. The resolution of each bathymetry grid is also specified in each survey's layer description

  • This service represents the National Digital Elevation Model (DEM) 1 Second Percentage Slope product, derived from the National DEM SRTM 1 Second. Slope measures the inclination of the land surface from the horizontal. Percent slope represents this inclination as the ratio of change in height to distance.

  • Legacy product - no abstract available

  • Digital Elevation Model data record the terrain height variations from the processed point-located data recorded on an airborne geophysical survey.  The aircraft altimeter data records the height of the aircraft above the ground and the aircraft GPS records the height of the aircraft above the ellipsoid.  Subtracting the two values enables the height of the terrain beneath the aircraft relative to the ellipsoid to be calculated.  This ellipsoidal terrain height is corrected for the variation between the ellipsoid and the geoid (the n-value correction) to produce terrain heights relative to sea level.

  • Cuttings and cores taken between the depths of 30 feet and 4,755 feet in Well No.1 Kurrajong Heights were received from the Australian Oil and Gas Corporation Limited for micropalaeontological examination. Drilling was discontinued at the depth of 4,766 feet. Attention was given mainly to the fourteen cores submitted but when it seemed necessary to check with the cutting this was done. No microfossils when found in cores or cuttings until Core No. 17 taken at the depth of 4,656-4,665 feet when foraminifera of Permian age were discovered. They also occurred in cuttings at 4,670, 4,675, 4,680, 7,705 and 4,725 feet as well as in Core No. 18 at 4,750-4,755 feet, which is all feet above the base of the bore.

  • The radiometric, or gamma-ray spectrometric method, measures the natural variations in the gamma-rays detected near the Earth's surface as the result of the natural radioactive decay of potassium, uranium and thorium. The data are collected on airborne geophysical surveys conducted by Commonwealth, State & NT Governments and the private sector.
