Geoscape is a new initiative from PSMA that captures Australia’s observed built environment and anchors it in a reliable geospatial base.
The data set is regularly updated and links together numerous land and property features relating to:
- Physical structures
- Land and vegetation
- Geographical locations
This includes 3D building attributes, land cover details and tree heights, in addition to information on roof materials, swimming pools, solar panels and more.
PSMA Australia Geoscape fly-through
Geoscape differs from other existing urban 3D representations in three key ways:
- The coverage is national – it will document the whole of Australia
- It will be maintained on a regular basis so that it depicts the built environment as it changes
- Geoscape includes linkages to other important geospatial reference data sets, such as geocoded address, property boundary data and the transport network
