The Department of Planning and Environment makes key planning spatial datasets available for public use under open access licenses. These datasets can be accessed as either a web map service or downloaded as a shape file.

Web map services

These services are aimed at geographic information system (GIS) professional users with a technical knowledge of web map service development processes. To use the web map services you will need access to software which can communicate with the services, such as an online web portal or a GIS application. The web map services support a variety of service protocols, including Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) services and ESRI mapping and image services.

The links below provide instructions for using some commonly available desktop applications (both proprietary and open source) to access the OGC web services and ESRI mapping and image services provided by Geoscience Australia. Not all of the services will work in all of the software systems.

To load and display the service, click on the appropriate OGC URL.
