Delivery Organisation - Geoscape Australia

Geoscape is the digital Australia – a comprehensive representation of our built environment. It is consistently formatted spatial data that describes the addresses, land, buildings and transport networks across Australia’s complex cities, regional centres and rural communities.

Geoscape Australia is the trading name of PSMA Australia Limited, a self-funded public company owned by the governments of Australia. The organisation’s first major initiative was to support the 1996 Census through the provision of Australia’s first national digital basemap at street-level.

We were incorporated in 2001 and tasked with collating, transforming and delivering national spatial datasets. Our establishment reflected the desire of Australian governments to work together to establish national, location information infrastructure to advance the emerging information economy. Geoscape Australia is now a trusted source of essential national location data, with a diverse ecosystem of data partners.

The value of Geoscape data is in its richness. It enables a range of innovations and applications. To support broad use of the data, it is available through online subscription services in business-ready formats, as well as customised enterprise plans. Geoscape Australia has a network of solution partners that integrate Geoscape data into other products and services. The partner network includes traditional geospatial specialists and data engineers, as well as software developers, marketing service providers, systems integrators and consultancies.

Informal Description of the Data Product

Electoral Boundaries is a national digital dataset of Australia’s electoral divisions or electorates. The Electoral Boundaries dataset has two layers: Commonwealth Electoral Boundaries (CEB) and State Electoral Boundaries (SEB).

Electoral Boundaries are based on government data provided by the appropriate authorities. The Commonwealth and State/Territory Governments collect data to delineate the areas covered by each tier of government within Australia.

Geoscape welcomes your feedback on the Electoral Boundaries Dataset. We also publish regular updates on the development of our products on the Geoscape website.
