SARIG delivers map layers in multiple formats:

Vector data

  • ESRI Shapefiles, Geodabases
  • MapInfo Tab files
  • Google Earth KMZ

Raster Data

  • GeoTIF (Georefereced TIFF)
  • ERS (Earth Resource Mapping Satellite)
  • ECW (Enhanced Compression Wavelet)
  • Petrosys (Petrosys Software)

Web Services

  • Web Map Services (WMS)
  • Web Feature Services (WFS)

Coordinate system

In SARIG all spatial layers are delivered in geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) based on the Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94). GDA94 is the current Australian standard based on the International terrestrial Reference Frame 1992 (ITRF92) and is compatible with the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). Specifications for GDA94 can be found on the Geoscience Australia website.
