Acreage Release Data Portal

The Acreage Release Portal provides access to data and information about the government’s annual offshore petroleum exploration acreage releases. Each year, the government invites companies to bid for the opportunity to invest in oil and gas exploration in Australian waters.

Aerial Photography - Flight Line Diagrams

Aerial photography is recorded on flight line diagrams, which show; aircraft paths, the centre of the photos in relation to ground features, and film reference numbers. Use Geoscience Australia's online catalogue of flight line diagrams to select your photos.

As the Cocky Flies

As the Cocky Flies will calculate the distance between two places in Australia. This query searches the Gazetteer of Australia 2008 Release, which is a compilation of over 310 000 geographic names in Australia provided by members of the Committee for Geographic Names in Australasia.


The national AUSGeoid09 grid file, state files and 1:250,000 map sheet files can be downloaded from Geoscience Australia's ftp server. These files can be used to compute AHD heights in real time when used in Real Time Kinematic GNSS receivers.

AusH2 - Australia's Hydrogen Opportunities Tool

Australian's Hydrogen Opportunities Tool (AusH2) provides free access to geoscience data and tools for mapping and understanding the potential for hydrogen production in Australia. AusH2 tracks the development of hydrogen projects around Australia. The Hydrogen Economic Fairways Tool (HEFT) geospatial economic assessment tool can be accessed through AusH2. It uses key national-scale datasets and economic models to map the potential for hydrogen production. HEFT considers hydrogen production by electrolysis using renewable energy sources (green hydrogen) and hydrogen produced using fossil fuels coupled with carbon capture and storage (blue hydrogen).

AUSPOS - Online GPS Processing Service

AUSPOS is an online GPS data processing facility provided by Geoscience Australia and takes advantage of both The IGS Stations Network and the IGS product range. AUSPOS works with data collected anywhere on Earth

AusSeabed Marine Data Portal

The AusSeaBed Portal provides access to publically available acoustic datasets such as bathymetry, backscatter, side scan sonar data and other marine-related products, as well as a suite of analytical assessment tools to maximise the value of the data. This interface allows users to explore seafloor mapping products across Australia’s marine jurisdiction prior to downloading.

Australia-wide Total Magnetic Intensity Variability

Using data from the six Australian continental magnetic observatories, a contour display of the rate-of-change of magnetic total intensity, F, over the continent is shown below. This provides a broad view of how F changes across Australia. The units shown on the contours are in nanoTesla per hour. The grey squares indicate the locations of the magnetic observatories. Both real-time and historic data can be displayed in this format. All maps are generated from a period of 15 minutes of observatory data and available at 15 minute intervals.

Australian Critical Minerals Portal

The Australian Critical Minerals Portal provides access to data, information and tools on Critical Minerals in Australia. Critical minerals are metals and non-metals vital to the well-being of global economies, yet vulnerable to disruptions in supply. This can be due to geological scarcity, geopolitical issues, trade policy or other factors. Australia has an abundance of many critical minerals essential to advanced technology applications for digital communication, clean energy, transport and defence industries.

Australian Flood Risk Information Portal

Search the Australian Flood Risk Information Portal and access the data entry application for the Australian Flood Studies Database. The portal provides a central point of access to published flood studies and the associated spatial data.
