Lineage

Geological GIS data has been compiled at GA since the 1990's using ESRI's ArcInfo and ArcGIS software suite, and more recently 3D software such as Gocad. Data was initially digitised by hand, but is now routinely digitised by scanning and vectorising of hand-drawn compilation sheets using topographic map or airphoto base maps. Data is attributed according to GA's standard data dictionary. Key Clients:Internal Geoscience Australia staff; minerals and energy resources industry; local, state and federal government and universities.
