Abstract

Geoscience Australia collects and manages large amounts of data for Australia's marine zone, including bathymetry data and the legal boundaries of petroleum acreage release areas. Communicating this information to non-specialists can be difficult. To overcome this communication problem Geoscience Australia uses innovative visualisation techniques, including 3D flythroughs and video editing, to integrate raster and vector geospatial data into enhanced multimedia products. Geoscience Australia has used these techniques for a number of years and the resulting products are highly regarded by stakeholders interested in marine zone management and petroleum exploration. This paper examines four case studies where these innovative techniques were used to effectively communicate marine zone information with a wide audience.
