Sentinel is a national bushfire monitoring system that provides timely information about hotspots to emergency service managers across Australia. The mapping system allows users to identify fire locations with a potential risk to communities and property.
Compute Sun and Moon Azimuth & Elevation To use this facility you need to know the latitude and longitude of the location for which you want to calculate the azimuth and vertical angle.
Computes sunrise, sunset and twilight times using the National Gazetteer of Australia.
Topographic Data and Map specifications for The National Topographic Database and NTMS series 1:250 000 and 1:100 000 scale topographic map products.
Geodetic Calculations - Vincenty's Formulae, Direct Method Given the latitude and longitude of a point (1) and the forward geodetic azimuth (1-2) and ellipsoidal distance to a second point (2), calculate the latitude and longitude of the second point and the reverse azimuth (2-1).
Geodetic Calculations - Vincenty's Formulae, Inverse Method Given latitude and longitude of two points, calculate the ellipsoidal distance and forward and reverse azimuths between the points.
As part of the National Flood Risk Information Project, Geoscience Australia will map flooding from satellite imagery across Australia from 1987 to the present.
Geoscience Australia's 3D Data Viewer is an application developed using NASA's World Wind Java Software Development Kit (SDK) to display Australia's continental data sets. The viewer allows you to compare national data sets such as the radioelements, the gravity and magnetic anomalies, and other mapping layers, and show the data draped over the Australian terrain in three dimensions.
