  • Geoscience Australia's World Wind Viewer is an application developed using NASA's World Wind Java Software Development Kit (SDK) to display Australia's continental data sets. The viewer allows you to compare national data sets such as the radioelements, the gravity and magnetic anomalies, and other mapping layers, and show the data draped over the Australian terrain in three dimensions.

  • Program PRINSAS (PRocessing and INterpretation of Small Angle Scattering data) takes raw SANS, SAXS, USANS and USAXS data, stores the data, and allows the user to further process and interpret the data. Although any small angle scattering data can be accepted, PRINSAS has been specifically designed for the processing and interpretation of SAS data for rocks and other media with a wide distribution of scatterer sizes.

  • RICS (Rapid Inventory Collection System) is a vehicular data collection system. It collects geo-tagged imagery and user added property damage-level information. The system consists of Ethernet cameras, tripods, circuitry and the RICS software that runs on a laptop. It was successfully deployed following the 2009 Victorian Bushfires, the 2010 Kalgoorlie and Christchurch Earthquakes, the 2011 Brisbane floods and TC Yassi.

  • This software supports GeoSCiML and was developed by GA and is called Fullmoon. This software will hosted on CSIRO's SEEGRID Site.

  • The ANZLIC Metadata tool uses the ISO 19139 (2005) metadata standard which is the current supported metadata standard used in Australia in its ArcGIS Desktop version 10.5 software package. This metadata tool is intended to be used through the ArcGIS Desktop version 10.5 software accessed via the description tab in ArcCatalog. The tool was previously developed and supported by Esri Australia but this was formally handed over to ANZLIC in 2017. Geoscience Australia in support of ANZLIC has developed this new metadata tool based on the previous work of Esri Australia and the new Esri Inc ArcGIS Desktop 10.5 Metadata toolkit. The tool is intended for users of Esri Inc ArcGIS Desktop version 10.5 software to create ANZLIC compliant ISO 19139 metadata associated with datasets.

  • A Linked Data API, using Python Flask which is an HTTP API framework, used to deliver representations of GA's aerial Surveys online as Linked Data. The API reads data from another HTTP API: the ARGUS XML API. The ARGUS XML API is generated by Oracle software and delivers XML representations of Survey objects stored in the ARGUS database. The online endpoints for the ARGUS XML API as accessed by this Surveys API are given in a config file within this API's code. Details about how to use this API are given within the main README file of this API's code repository (README.md).

  • The Geoscience Australia Product Catalogue contains metadata conforming to the ISO 19115-1 Geographic Information metadata standard, describing resource types including datasets, publications, services, models, software and more.

  • The Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS), also known as Daichi, is a Japanese satellite launched on 24 January 2006. The satellite provides high quality, low cost Earth observation data for topographical mapping, disaster and environmental monitoring and climate change studies. ALOS also provides an alternative source of data and a level of back-up to the Landsat series of satellites.

  • This page provides quick-look images and basic metadata for all Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) acquisitions made by Geoscience Australia Earth Observation in the past seven days. Each swath is labelled by orbit number and date, and is divided into scenes or "Granules". Time of day is shown using Co-ordinated Universal Time (UTC) which is similar to Greenwich Mean Time. Australian Eastern Standard time is UTC plus 10 hours. Data for download is in a specialised format suitable for image analysis by professional users. If a simple image file (*.jpg) only is required, click on the magnifying glass, then right-click on the enlarged image and Save Picture As to save to your local drive. First enlargement is approx five kilometre pixels and the second enlargement is approx one kilometre pixels. Quick-look images derived from HDF datasets are cropped at 180°E - (The HDF datasets themselves are complete).

  • This application provides quick-look images and download options of the MOD43 Nadir BRDF-Adjusted Reflectance (NBAR) Products generated by ACRES. These products are a composite, generated for MODIS spectral bands 1-7 at the mean solar zenith angle over a 16 day period. In addition to the NBAR composite products, the BRDF parameters for each band, the ancillary, and band quality information are also provided. Each NBAR composite product is in GeoTIFF format at 500 metres resolution. All of the files are compressed using gzip/tar as "*.tar.gz". For Windows gzip/tar support please try WinZip.
