Application Description
ProvExplorer - Australian Geological Provinces Database
The ProvExplorer web application - - is a web-based map interface to the Australian Geological Provinces Database. The database contains descriptions and polygon outlines of geological provinces of the Australian continent and surrounding marine jurisdictional area. The provinces are mapped at a nominal 1:1 million scale.

Information folder
In support of the annual offshore acreage release process, Geoscience Australia has, over the last six years, provided seismic data in a 'workstation ready' package to allow industry to load the data directly into their interpretation platforms saving considerable time and expense. These workstation packages are available in GeoFrame(TM)4.5, KingdomŪ8.5 formats and as exported segy with navigation in the headers ready for loading into any platform. This year data is split across two drives. The drives contain the relevant open-file 2D and 3D seismic and well information from the release areas. Well logs, well completion reports, destructive analysis reports and tiff images of scanned well log plots are included. Previously delivered limited interpretation over the North West Shelf for the 13 Geoscience Australia surveys are also included. The 2013 data package contains approximately 76,500 km2 of 3D and 524,900 kms of 2D. 2D projects have been divided into six main regional areas over the acreage and the workstation package has a variety of culture data loaded including well header data, bathymetric, magnetic and gravity grids as geo referenced tiffs. New seismic data for the 2013 release has been loaded primarily as 16 bit.
Geoscience Australia's Geochron Delivery System
Geoscience Australia's Geochron Delivery system is the retrieval system for geochronological data stored by Geoscience Australia. The system will be continually updated as the volume, variety and quality of available geochronological data increase. The initial (September 2011) release contains only ion microprobe (SHRIMP) data, comprising data from about 560 samples, chiefly derived from Geoscience Australia's previous Geochronology OZCHRON. Migration of further OZCHRON data, and upload of more recent data (including analyses obtained in collaboration with the States and the Northern Territory under the National Geoscience Agreement) is ongoing and continuous.
Search the Petroleum Information Management System
PIMS is a search tool for discovery of survey and well data assets and physical samples held by the Geoscience Australia Repository. Data can be ordered and viewing of samples can be arranged via an online form. Although this is public data, fees are charged to cover the cost of transcription and delivery.
View Scanned 1:250 000 Geology Maps on the Geoscience Portal
View or download scanned images of all 1:250 000 scale geology maps of Australia. Images are available in 75 DPI, 125 DPI or 250 DPI resolution JPG files. The images are not spatially georeferenced. This application is deliverd on the Geoscience Portal (, a collaborative web portal maintained by Geoscience Australia on behalf of all Australian State, Territory and Commonwealth geological survey agencies.
Petroleum Wells Application
This application provides access to GA's Oracle petroleum wells databases. Data themes include header data, biostratigraphy, organic geochemistry, reservoir and facies, stratigraphy, velocity and directional surveys. Data is included for offshore and onshore regions. Scientific data entry is generally only conducted for offshore wells. Onshore data is generally acquired from state geological surveys.
Australian Fundamental Gravity Network
Web delivery system to provide locality description and images of AFGN stations to the general public.
Geophysical Archive Data Delivery System Application
This system provides magnetic, radiometric, gravity and digital elevation data from Australian National, State and Territory Government geophysical data archives.
