- Data from other government agencies that value-add to mineral and energy resources managed data, e.g. land access layers for parks, Native Title and property boundaries
- Seismic lines and seismic horizon maps
- SEG-Y and HyLoggerTM image and data downloads
Users can search and download from multiple government databases, e.g.
- Field observations
- Mine deposits and prospects

Geology, Mineral Resource Potential
- Greater Adelaide Region
The Mineral Resource Potential Mapping dataset translates geological mapping, current mineral production tenement locations and a range of other resource information into a three level categorisation of resource potential and suggested planning responses.
A selection of soil datasets provided by the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources - see the metadata link for the layer for more information on soil datasets
- Soil group (soil type)
- Soil subgroup (soil type)
- Depth to hard rock (soils)
- Salinity non-watertable (soil salinity)
- Salinity - watertable induced (soil salinity)
Land access, restricted exploration or production access
- Precious stone fields, Andamooka diggings
The internet browsers that support SARIG with the best performance are:
- Google Chrome
Internet Explorer 8+ is supported by SARIG, but not version 7.
No additional software or plug-ins are required to use the SARIG application.
When the application opens a default base map of South Australia will display with a main menu and available mapping tools.
If the spatial data is custodian of Department of State Development, you can download the map layers from SARIG.
SARIG delivers map layers in multiple formats:
- ESRI Shapefiles, Geodabases
- MapInfo Tab files
- Google Earth KMZ
- GeoTIF (Georefereced TIFF)
- ERS (Earth Resource Mapping Satellite)
- ECW (Enhanced Compression Wavelet)
- Petrosys (Petrosys Software)
- Web Map Services (WMS)
- Web Feature Services (WFS)
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.
