Abstract 

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.

ELVIS (Elevation Information System)
Ensuring decision makers, investors and the community have access to the best available elevation data describing Australia's landforms and sea bed to address the needs of today and the decades ahead.

Point of Contact 
Aggregation Method 
Aggregation Comment 
Elevation data is generally captured in a adhoc project manor. The FSDF dataset collects significant national collections and facilitates the user to access data catalogues where available.
