  • The Geophysical Airborne Survey Index presents a summary of the essential specifications of over 800 airborne surveys held in the National Airborne Geophysics Database.

  • This dataset contains the current and predicted petroleum permits for the Australian region. The tenement information is derived from ENCOM Technologies in Melbourne and is exported from a proprietry software application called GPINFO. These tenements are updated 3 monthly. NOTE : there are no attributes for this dataset other than tenement name, if you want more information on tenements see AGSOCAT rec 36024 for the AGSO petroleum titles dataset. NOTE : This dataset is only generated as an Arcview shapefile, There is no corresponding Arcinfo dataset.

  • The dataset is made publicly available as a GIS at nominal 1:5 000 000 scale, and shows the time-space-event distribution of mafic-ultramafic magmatism in Australia from the early Archean to the present day. Development of this GIS has been a multi-year project and earlier released extracts (in viewable pdf form with accompanying Geoscience Australia Records) included compilations for the Archean magmatic record, the Proterozoic magmatic record, and the Australian Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs). Publication of the GIS completes the series with addition of the Phanerozoic magmatic record, and formalisation of the complete record of Archean-Phanerozoic magmatic events as a single series. The chronology of Australian mafic-ultramafic magmatism resolves into 74 magmatic events within, predominately, resolvable bands of ±10 million years. Each event is identified by geological units grouped by similar age - this coeval magmatism may or may not be genetically related and may be in response to different geodynamic environments. These magmatic events range in age from the Eoarchean ~3730 Ma ME 1 - Manfred Event, confined within a small remnant domain within the Yilgarn Craton, to the widespread record of Cenozoic magmatism in eastern Australia (ME 72 to ME 74). The magmatic events range in magnitude from the giant volumes of magma in Large Igneous Provinces, to events whose only known occurrence is an isolated record of dated mafic igneous rock in a single drillhole. The GIS makes it possible to focus on the location of any one of these magmatic events, or groups of magmatic events that may be of interest, and overlay context from any other information that users may have available. The delineation of magmatic events for this study is based on several hundred published ages of mafic and ultramafic igneous rocks from different isotopic systems and minerals. In addition to their ages and extents, primary recorded aspects of each magmatic event include the presence or absence of ultramafic components. Further to this, the presence or correlation of known magmatic-related mineralisation is highlighted in Time-Space-Event Charts of Australia (Appendix D, figures D1 and D2). The basis for mapping has been regional solid geology, interpreted basement geology and surface geology base maps made available by the State and Northern Territory geological surveys, providing insight into the total areal extent of the magmatic systems under cover. Also available to complement the Event GIS are the domains and element boundaries from the Australian Crustal Elements map. These boundaries which are which are based on geophysical extrapolation of crustal elements under the cover of continental basins, provide a framework of the shallow crustal structure of the continent, and are used in this guide. The Crustal Elements digital dataset is available for download from the Geoscience Australia website. Insight into the geodynamic development of the continent is provided by the magmatic event structure through time. The compilation draws attention to concentrations of mafic-ultramafic magmatism in the Archean from ~2820-2665 Ma, in the Proterozoic from ~1870-1590 Ma, and in the late Neoproterozoic-Phanerozoic from ~530-225 Ma. These three time spans contain 39 of the 74 magmatic events, 53% of the entire mafic-ultramafic magmatic event record of the continent. The periods in between have mafic-ultramafic magmatic records that are more dispersed in time. Other features of interest include the shared geographic and crustal element locations of Large Igneous Provinces and numerous events with smaller magma volumes.

  • Geoscience Australia`s wall map of Australia is ideal for displays and feature walls in offices, classrooms and conference rooms. The four component sheets - North-East, North-West, South-East and South-West are available individually, flat or folded, with each map 103cm x 88cm. The fully assembled size is 2m x 1.7m. At this scale 1 cm on the map represents 25km on the ground. This map can be purchased from Geoscience Australia`s Sales Centre or your nearest topographic map retailer. Digital data at this scale, suitable for use in a GIS, is also available for free download. Product Specifications Coverage: Complete coverage of Australia Currency: Last revised 1998 Coordinates: Geographical Datum: AGD66 (GDA94 compliant at this scale); AHD Projection: Simple Conic on two standard parallels (18S and 36S) Medium: Paper, flat and folded copies Forward Program: Will be revised upon completion of small-scale product data revision

  • Since 2012, Geoscience Australia has been providing spatial support and advice to the Crisis Coordination Centre (CCC) within Emergency Management Australia (EMA) as part of our collaboration with the Attorney-General's Department. The GA Exposure Report was developed to provide timely exposure information for emergency response and decision-making. The Exposure Report is generated by extracting relevant demographic, building, business, agriculture, institution and infrastructure attributes from the National Exposure information System (NEXIS) in an event footprint, geographical boundary or area of interest.

  • Map index indicating availablility of the Geoscience Australia produced 100k and 250k topographic mapping.

  • These images are derived from the "Gravity Anomaly Grid of the Australian Region" (GEOCAT record: 38953). That grid combines accurate onshore gravity measurements, a sub-sample of the levelled offshore marine gravity traverses with satellite data used in areas where there is no marine data. The cell values represent simple Bouguer anomalies at a density of 2.67 tm−³ onshore and free-air anomalies offshore. The grid cell size is 0.5 minutes of arc, which is equivalent to about 800 metres. The smallest wavelength contained in the grid is 1600 m.
