Abstract

This map was created from the Surface Geology of Australia (1:1M scale) dataset, plotted at 1:15 million scale. The Surface Geology of Australia data was compiled by standardising and edge-matching over 400 geological maps which have been published by Australian Government, State and Territory agencies over the past 40 years. This seamless digital dataset is the most detailed national coverage available of the continent and islands. It provides information on the distribution and type of over 5000 outcropping bedrock and regolith units, such as sand plains and dunes.
