Abstract

The regular release of offshore acreage is a key part of the Australian Government's strategy to encourage investment in petroleum exploration. This CD product contains six interactive 3D VRML models of the 2007 acreage release areas and was created for distribution at the 2007 APPEA conference and for later distribution via the web.

Lineage

The extent of the 2007 release areas has been decided upon by Australian Federal Government Departments (GA and ITR) in conjunction with the relevant State Government Departments. The 2007 release areas were originally digitally captured in ArcGis 9.0(ESRI).The latitudes and longitudes of the area polygons were accurately plotted with a geographic co-ordinate system, using the WGS84 datum. Other data within the models has been supplied by Geoscience Australia's Petroleum and Marine Division and from standard GA datasets such as the Geodata 250k product.
