Datasets

Geographic features - Queensland series

This is a series of datasets covering the State of Queensland displaying geographic features. Features are attributed with source information and names where available. Datasets include: - Bays including Bays, Coves, Gulfs etc.; Large Area Features including Deserts, Peninsulas etc.; Mountain Ranges; Beaches; Sea Passages; Mountain Peaks; Capes including Capes, Points, Head; Mainland; Marine Islands; Reefs and Shoals; Island Groups, Highest Astronomical Tide

Queensland topographic map web service

The Queensland topographic map service is based on data acquired and collated by the Department of Natural Resources and Mines, Queensland for more than thirty years. This data is used primarily for the creation of the 1:25 000 Topographic Map Series covering various parts of Queensland. The service uses a map cache created for the following scales: 1:18,084, 1:36,112, 1:72,224, 1:144,448, 1:288,895, 1:577,791, 1:1,155,581, 1:2,311,162, 1:4,622,324 and 1:9,244,649. The map cache will be refreshed periodically to show updated data.

Watercourse identification map - Queensland series

The watercourse identification map (WIM): identifies geographic features that are managed under the Water Act 2000 section 5AA; is displayed in the Google Earth Queensland Globe's category globe 'inland waters'; is updated monthly, nominally the first business day on or after the first of the month (except January) (CERTIFIED date); displays datasets WM1228 watercourse, WM1232 drainage feature, WM1234 downstream limit. See http://globe.information.qld.gov.au/QldBanners/WIM.html and

Digital Topographic Data

Our topographic data is available for use in GIS applications, in the following scales which reflect their level of accuracy and best scale for use. The smaller the scale (i.e. 1:250 000 is a smaller scale than 1:100 000), the fewer features are depicted in the data and naturally they will be less spatially accurate. Geodata is vector data.

National scale land use d​a​ta​​

Land use data mapped at the national scale (1:2,500,000) using ABS agricultural commodity data and satellite imagery can be downloaded from ​this page. Table 1 provides links to the datasets and associated documents that should be read before using the data. National land use data is available for the 1992-93, 1993-94, 1996-97, 1998-99, 2000-01, 2001-02, 2005-06 and 2010-11 financial years.

GEODATA TOPO 250K series 3

GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 is a vector representation of the major topographic features appearing on the 1:250,000 scale NATMAPs supplied in Personal Geodatabase format and is designed for use in a range of commercial GIS software. Data is arranged within specific themes. All data is based on the GDA94 coordinate system. GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 is available as a free download product in Personal Geodatabase, ArcView Shapefile or MapInfo TAB file formats.

Collaborative Australian protected areas database – CAPAD

During 2014 state and territory nature conservation agencies provided information on their terrestrial and marine protected areas. This information was compiled into CAPAD 2014.

CAPAD 2014 figures include interim protected areas. These are land parcels purchased or identified to become protected areas with binding agreements and are now in the process of getting formal recognition as a protected area.
