Lineage

The consular missions datasets were digitized between August and November 2012 from aerial photography, orthophotos and satellite imagery held within Geoscience Australia. Image resolution ranged from 0.15m to 2.5m. Harder to locate facilities were identified and placed through collaboration with the Australian Federal Police (AFP). Source Information: The primary information source used to locate the consulate facilities was the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website. - Australian Government - DFAT - http://www.dfat.gov.au/embassies.html A list of embassies and diplomatic consulates with names and detailed address information was obtained through the above website. When required, individual consulate websites were referred to.
