  • The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC are funding the preparation of an exposure information modelling framework to identify fundamental information requirements for better evidence based disaster management. The framework will underpin the development of a comprehensive natural hazards exposure information base to assist in reducing the natural hazards risk to communities. Implementation of the framework will help to understand the exposure of people, buildings, businesses and infrastructure to natural hazards. Current exposure information provision capabilities have been reviewed to identify key issues, needs, gaps, overlaps and deficiencies. A stakeholder engagement workshop was convened to identify future information needs and to understand the trends by aligning with broader framework objectives of the National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines. The following are four different components of built environment exposure identified through extensive reviews and stakeholder consultation for endorsement. Information on population o remoteness, density, mobility, socio-economic status, age profile, disability status, indigenous and ethnic composition and proportion of floating and tourist population o time dependence of population, population evacuation speed, information on factors that influence human risk perception and information on existing network organisations and community groups are important for exposure information modelling. Information on Buildings o building type, code/standard, age, location, location by the exposure categories o number of storeys, floor height, elevation, orientation, façade coverage and material use o ancillary buildings Information on infrastructure o roads, bridges, airports and seaports; power distribution networks; underground water supply networks o lifeline and connected infrastructure. Information on business and land use o location of operations, type, employment, turnover, size, value and costs o primary industry agriculture, horticulture, cattle o ecological inventory, land use The collective views of data managers, researchers and end users have informed the basis for exposure information requirements to develop a consistent, standardised exposure information framework that will support vulnerability assessments for disaster risk reduction and socio-economic impact analysis.

  • GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 is a vector representation of the major topographic features appearing on the 1:250,000 scale NATMAPs. Data is arranged within specific themes. All data is based on the GDA94 coordinate system. The 250K transport data used in the National Map base map are seamless national datasets and cover the whole of Australia. The transport datasets have been updated since the GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 release.

  • This point dataset contains the major airport hangar facilities in Australia.

  • The dataset contains the spatial locations, in point format, of Australia's major international, domestic and regional airport terminals.

  • This point dataset contains the Aviation Fire Fighting and Recue Facilities in Australia.

  • This point dataset contains the major airport fuel storage and supply facilities in Australia.

  • The dataset contains spatial locations, in point format, of the Australian High Court, Australian Federal Courts and the Australian Magistrates Courts.

  • The dataset contains spatial locations in point format as a representation of correctional facilities in Australia.

  • The dataset contains spatial locations in point format as a representation of Immigration Detention Facilities in Australia. Definition: Immigration detention centres primarily accommodate people who have overstayed their visa, breached their visa conditions and had their visa cancelled or have been refused entry at Australia's entry ports.

  • The datasets contain spatial locations in point format as a representation of embassies, high commissions and consulate facilities/missions in Australia.
