Geoscape Australia is a provider of national location data, backed by the governments of Australia.
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 Australia is the trading name of PSMA Australia Limited, a self-funded public company owned by Australia’s governments.
We take the guesswork out of location.
Geoscape is the digital Australia – a comprehensive representation of our built environment. It describes the addresses, land, buildings and transport networks across Australia’s 7.6 million km2. We continuously source, process and deliver data to various endpoints, including APIs and a self-service portal.
|In 1992, the Public Sector Mapping Agency submitted a proposal for a national digital basemap for the 1996 Census. And we were born. We were incorporated in 2001 and tasked with coordinating, assembling and delivering national spatial datasets. Our heritage lies in addressing, having produced the Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF) since 2004. It’s Australia’s centralised, comprehensive address register. We now use Agile methodologies to meet demand for currency, speed and flexibility in the delivery of location intelligence in the modern data economy.|
