  • This service represents models of the structure and composition of the lithospheric mantle. The service currently delivers grids generated from modelling of the structure and composition of the lithospheric mantle at an Australian continental scale using the LitMod platform.

  • This service is produced specifically for the Northern Australia Project and may be removed or changes without notice. This web service shows land tenure in Western Australia and Queensland north of the Tropic of Capricorn and the whole of Northern Territory. This service uses PSMA 2015 land tenure data for Western Australia, and PSMA August 2016 for Northern Territory and Queensland.

  • The Land Cover map service includes information derived from the Dynamic Land Cover Dataset (2000-2008) containing Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) information. The service provides a base-line for identifying and reporting on change and trends in vegetation cover and extent. It is a cached service with a Web Mercator Projection.

  • This service delivers airborne electromagnetics (AEM) derived conductivity grids for depth intervals representing the top 22 layers from AEM modelling in the West Musgrave region (https://dx.doi.org/10.26186/147969). The grids were generated from the AEM conductivity models released as part of the Western Resource Corridor AusAEM survey (https://dx.doi.org/10.26186/147688), the Earaheedy and Desert Strip AusAEM survey (https://pid.geoscience.gov.au/dataset/ga/145265) and several industry surveys (https://dx.doi.org/10.26186/146278) from the West Musgraves region. The AEM conductivity models resolve important subsurface features for assessing the groundwater system including lithological boundaries, palaeovalleys and hydrostatigraphy.

  • This web service provides access to datasets produced by the mineral potential assement of iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) mineral systems in the Tennant Creek – Mt Isa region. The mineral potential assessment uses a 2D, GIS-based workflow to qualitatively map four key mineral system components: (1) Sources of metals, fluids and ligands, (2) Energy to drive fluid flow, (3) Fluid flow pathways and architecture, and (4) Deposition mechanisms, such as redox or chemical gradients. For each of these key mineral system components theoretical criteria, representing important ore-forming processes, were identified and translated into mappable proxies using a wide range of input datasets. Each of these criteria are weighted and combined using an established workflow to produce the final map of IOCG potential.

  • The Mineral Potential web service provides access to digital datasets used in the assessment of mineral potential in Australia. The service includes maps showing the potential for sediment-hosted base metal mineral systems in Australia.

  • The Seas and Submerged Lands Act (SSLA) 1973 is the Australian legislation that provides the domestic legal framework for Australia to declare its international offshore maritime zones, as provided for by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) to which Australia is a party. Proclamations under the SSLA establish the territorial sea baseline, the territorial sea, the contiguous zone, the exclusive economic zone and the continental shelf. This service depicts official spatial representation of these proclamations. The service includes feature layers: Normal and Straight baselines limits and locations; Contiguous Zone and limit; Territorial Sea Zone and limit; Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), limits and locations; Continental Shelf limit and locations.

  • World Bathymetry Base Map tile cache. The service includes world bathymetry data, and ocean, country, population and natural features. The information was derived from various sources, including Natural Earth and National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) ETOPO2 Global 2 Elevations from the September 2001 data. The service contains layer scale dependencies.

  • This OGC conformant web service delivers data from Geoscience Australia's Boreholes database (borehole header and directional survey data) and associated geological observations (lithostratigraphic data). The data includes records of boreholes drilled by Geoscience Australia and its predecessor organisations (BMR, AGSO), all boreholes drilled in Australian Commonwealth offshore marine jurisdictions, and a selection of onshore boreholes drilled by government and private entities. Where possible this service conforms to the GeoSciML v4.1 data transfer standard. Geoscience Australia is not a reporting or regulatory authority for borehole drilling. Borehole information in Geoscience Australia's Boreholes database is sourced from various regulatory authorities in the States, Northern Territory and Commonwealth governments for Geoscience Australia research purposes. Where Geoscience Australia is not the custodian of borehole data provided in this web service, the custodian agency provided with the data should be consulted as the authoritative source. The data dictionary for this web service is at <a href="https://d28rz98at9flks.cloudfront.net/144578/144578_00_3.pdf">https://d28rz98at9flks.cloudfront.net/144578/144578_00_3.pdf</a>.

  • This service provides header and observation data for gravity stations located throughout continental Australia and Remote Offshore Territories. Data sources include the Australian National Gravity Database (ANGD) and the Australian Fundamental Gravity Network (AFGN) maintained by Geoscience Australia (GA). Data has been obtained by Surveyors, Commonwealth and state/territory Governments, private companies, and educational institutions. Gravity data measures small changes in gravity due to changes in the density of rocks beneath the Earth's surface. The data collected are processed via standard methods to ensure the response recorded is that due only to the rocks in the ground. The results produce datasets that can be interpreted to reveal the geological structure of the sub-surface. The processed data is checked for quality by GA geophysicists to ensure that the final data released by GA are fit-for-purpose.
