National Digital Elevation Data


Australia's future safety, prosperity and sustainability depends on making informed policy and investment decisions that meet the needs of today, and the decades ahead. Digital elevation data which describes Australia's landforms and seabed is crucial for addressing issues relating to the impacts of climate change, disaster management, water security, environmental management, urban planning and infrastructure design. Geoscience Australia is working collaboratively across all levels of government, industry and academia to ensure decision makers, investors and communities have access to the best available elevation data to meet local, regional and national needs.
