Acknowledgements for the Cocos Islands Online GIS

The Mineral Resources and Advice Group at Geoscience Australia would like to acknowledge the support of various staff in the Territories Office, Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Arts and Sport (DRALGAS), whose efforts made the project and its continuation possible.

A number of people from Geoscience Australia have contributed to the Cocos Islands GIS over the years. Through this team effort valuable spatial and attribute data, that over time may have become lost, are now readily accessible in one integrated system.

Most data in the GIS has been captured through a variety of projects commissioned by the Commonwealth (usually Territories Office - DRALGAS). Numerous organisations, companies and individuals have also contributed data over the life of the GIS. They are acknowledged along with a description of their contribution in the Documents and Metadata section of this website.

The Cocos (Keeling) Islands online GIS was developed using the Open Layers API.

Compilation of data and its organisation into a GIS, along with the preparation of documentation, was undertaken by Geoscience Australia at the request of the Territories Office.
