The Transport theme focuses on foundation datasets for moving people, goods and freight, and other services from one location to another.

Theme Purpose

Transport datasets are managed separately within each state and Territory in Australia.  This data is critical for providing logistic support for all aspects of road transportation. Transportation data is used by states and territory governments and private sector companies which value add to the data for their specific purpose.  This value-add may be added back into the datasets f deemed suitable.  Different levels of government also hold different levels of data and it is related intimately with cadastre data.

There is an inconsistency between datasets at state borders due to different classification systems used.
