Discover Australia on Google Maps
Our friends down under at All Things Spatial inform us that Geoscience Australia has released a new, Google Maps based, Discovery and Delivery System. The map has been created to provide public access to a diverse range of data, products and services available from the organisation.
The map includes a number of overlay layers, including topography, geology, landcover, gravity image and magnetic image. The map also includes access to over 100,000 historic Landsat-7 and Landsat-5 images of Australia captured between 2000 and 2010. These can be viewed as WMS overlays on the map or can be downloaded as data.
