Theme and Reference Maps

Reference maps of Australia include wall maps, folio and report maps and general reference maps. Thematic maps include external territories, tourist maps, maritime zones and more. To replace hard copy maps Geoscience Australia is developing Web Services that allow access to our data without having to store datasets locally. Web Services enable the user to work with and ingest data into a GIS program to make maps.

How to use Web Services.

Geoscience Australia Interactive Maps are available to select then print electronic maps.
