Application Description
ProvExplorer - Australian Geological Provinces Database
The ProvExplorer web application - http://www.ga.gov.au/provexplorer/frames.do - 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.
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.
View Scanned 1:250 000 Geology Maps on the Geoscience Portal
View information on 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. Digital delivery of published (ie, cartographically produced) geological maps. When georeferenced, these images may be used as background information in GIS applications. Scanned image (eg, JPG), postscript, or PDF format published geological maps (including regolith, surface geology and solid geology) at all scales. This data may or may not be georeferenced.
Australian Fundamental Gravity Network
Web delivery system to provide locality description and images of AFGN stations to the general public.
Australian Stratigraphic Units Database
The Australian Stratigraphic Units Database (ASUD) is the national authority on stratigraphic names in Australia. It originated as the National Register of Stratigraphic Names in 1949. The register was originally set up to help geoscientists adhere to the then newly created Australian Code of Stratigraphic Nomenclature (Lenz, et al, 1996). All information was held in a card file system until 1979 when the database was first developed electronically. The database now records information on all Australian stratigraphic units and their usage in published literature. The database contains over 15000 currently approved stratigraphic names and over 30000 variations, most of which are superseded, obsolete, or misspelt versions of the current names. The database is maintained by Geoscience Australia on behalf of the Australian Stratigraphy Commission, a standing committee of the Geological Society of Australia. Data can be queried and downloaded at the ASUD website at http://www.ga.gov.au/oracle/stratnames/index.jsp.
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.
Map Connect
Delivering online mapping tools and information, this interactive service allows you to download Australian maps and data for FREE. MapConnect is useful to professionals or students working with spatial data. The general public is welcome to use this resource, but should note that some aspects of MapConnect are specialised.
