Geoscape Australia provides national location data. We continuously source, process and deliver data to various endpoints, including APIs and a self-service portal.

We’re a critical collaborator, delivering spatial data to enable economic, social and environmental outcomes across the economy. Our vision is achieved through a wide and sustained ecosystem of partnerships and collaboration.

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

• 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

The data powers deeper analysis and smarter processes for noise modelling, urban planning, property development, emergency management, telecommunications, utilities, insurance, retail and government service delivery.

Geoscape Australia is the trading name of PSMA Australia Limited, a self-funded public company owned by the governments of Australia. It’s built on the expertise that Australian businesses and governments have relied on for decades.

Location data can enhance your analysis and decision making.

• Self-select and download data for your geographic area of interest, on-demand whenever you need it.
• Connect via an API for seamless integration of location data into your business processes and applications.
• Obtain an enterprise licence for a whole dataset.
• Engage a Geoscape Partner for a location-based solution.

We take the guesswork out of location.

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 the Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF) and mailing addresses.
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 Geoscape Buildings data. The Buildings API is supported by the Addresses API, which provides building identifiers associated with an address.
Data on Demand Make Australia’s authoritative location data yours in just three steps. Download only what you need, achieve efficiency savings with one-click integration, and enjoy perpetual access. 1. SELECT: Upload your own shape file, or draw your required area using the Geoscape Data on Demand pen tool. 2. FILTER: Choose the data layers and attributes you need for your project from our library. 3. DOWNLOAD: The data you pay for is yours to access whenever you need it. Integrate our data into your workflow.
Developer Portal The Developer Portal enables direct access to Geoscape data via APIs (Application Programming Interface). Geoscape 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 urban areas, additional building attributes include roof height, ground elevation, roof type and roof colour.
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.
