Abstract

The Northern Australian Project online GIS, which has been chiefly designed to highlight the results of geochronological research within the project area, was first published in 2003 and updated in July 2004. GIS data reference layers include 1: 250,000, 1: 1 million, and 1: 2,500,000 geological data, regional geophysical images and a topographic map image. The geochronology and fluid inclusion points have been linked live to Geoscience Australia's OZROCKS, OZCHRON and PETROG Oracle databases. Forms display data to the user from these databases using customised query statements. Queries directed to geological layers display information derived from static ArcInfo shapefiles. The North Australia Project geochronology research has chiefly targeted the Arunta Block, Davenport Geosyncline, and the Granites-Tanami Block provinces within the project area. This map has been produced as a GeoPDF, which is an extension to the standard PDF file format viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Layers can be turned off and on to customise the view of the data, similar to using Geographic Information System tools. In addition, GeoPDF maps are georeferenced to be compatible with other coordinated geographic data. Coordinate locations and distances can be retrieved automatically. A plug-in to view GeoPDF using Adobe Acrobat Reader is available as a free download ( http://terragotech.com/solutions/map2pdf_reader.php ).
