Abstract

The Gazetteer of Australia is the authoritative data source providing information on the location and spelling of approved place names on the Australian mainland extending to the 3 mile marine limit, together with its external territories, except the Australian Antarctic Territory. Contains all the authorised place names covering Australia's land and offshore areas. The 2010 release consists of over 300,000 place names. The Gazetteer is compiled by the Geospatial and Earth Monitoring Division of Geoscience Australia, on behalf of the Committee for Geographical Names in Australasia (a committee of the Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping (ICSM)). Data is sourced from the relevant State and Territory jurisdictions (ACT, NSW, NT, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA) along with various Australian Government agencies (Australian Antarctic Division, Australia Hydrographic Service, and Geoscience Australia).
