Data as a service

Standard web services used to deliver our data

Where possible, data products at Geoscience Australia are delivered through web services. Web services allow access to GA data without having to store datasets locally. GA supports a variety of standard web service protocols including - RESTful API and OGC services.

The services can be found both in eCat and in an online register

To consume these services you need access to speciality software. If the processed data is available, the acquisition method will be discoverable in eCat.
