Geoscape by PSMA Australia is Australia’s digital twin – the big picture with every detail. It represents the buildings, land, transport networks and more across Australia’s 7.6 million square kilometres. It’s reliable, affordable and accessible.

Geoscape location data delivers a clear picture of our complex cities, regional centres and rural communities as they change. It contains:

• 15 million buildings
• 14 million addresses
• 15 million land parcels
• 1 million swimming pools
• 1.1 million solar panel installations
• 2.7 million kilometres of roads
• land and tree cover across Australia

Geoscape powers deeper analysis and smarter processes for noise modelling, urban planning, property development, emergency management, telecommunications, government service delivery and more. It’s built on the expertise that Australian businesses and governments have relied on for decades.

It’s the location data you need to enhance your analysis and decision making. Choose the complete national picture or select your specific area of interest. You can:

• Request clips of the data features and attributes you need whenever you need them.
• Connect via an API plan for seamless integration of location into your business applications.
• Obtain an enterprise licence for a whole dataset.
• Engage a Geoscape Partner for a location-based solution.

Geoscape is underpinned by PSMA Australia’s commitment to explore and map the nation.

From PSMA Australia to Geoscape
Our current Brands:
Addresses API An address verification service that offers a range of attributes for a selected address, including Commonwealth and state electorate, local government and ABS statistical area, property identifier and geographic coordinates. Input addresses are validated against PSMA's Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF).
Buildings API Offers detailed information on buildings, including 2D and 3D footprints, height, ground elevation, roof construction, solar panels and adjacent swimming pools. The information is sourced from the buildings theme in Geoscape. The Buildings API is supported by the Addresses API, which provides building identifiers associated with an address.
Developer Portal For direct access to PSMA data via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Geospatial APIs make accessing spatial data a low risk commitment, with a potential high return on investment.
Geoscape Addresses A state, suburb, street, number and coordinates of latitude and longitude for every physical address in Australia – more than 14 million. It’s continually updated and includes a link to the Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF), the authoritative address database for Australia.
Geoscape Buildings A digital representation of every building in Australia with a roof area greater than nine square metres – more than 15 million. Attributes include location, outline, addresses, planning zone and ABS statistical area for all buildings. In areas and remote communities, additional building attributes include roof height, ground elevation and roof type.
Geoscape Solar Panels Indicates whether photo-voltaic solar panels are installed on a building at an address.
Geoscape Surface Cover Describes what’s on the surface of the earth at a location. Classifications include bare earth, road and path, grass, trees, unspecified vegetation, built-up areas, water, buildings and swimming pool.
Geoscape Swimming Pools Indicates whether a swimming pool is present at an address.
Geoscape Trees Represents the coverage and height of trees. (The maximum height of trees that intersect with a building is a feature available in Geoscape Buildings.)
Greenspace and waterways Represents the location of all parks, playing fields, reserves, recreational areas and open space, as well as oceans, lakes, rivers, dams and other bodies of water.
Predictive Address API Australian predictive address search and verification available via a RESTful Application Programming Interface (API). Returns a structured address string, fully parsed address data and geocode.
Property boundaries and land parcels A digital representation of the boundaries of millions of legal land parcels and properties across Australia. It also identifies relationships between a property and a land parcel.
Roads, rail and airports Represents the location of all roads, airports and railways in Australia: • 2.7 million kilometres of roads, from major highways to outback tracks • all airport infrastructure, from international airports to local landing strips, and • the national rail network, tram lines and railway stations.
