Transport and Topography
A digital representation of Australia’s transport networks, waterways and green spaces.
From road and rail networks to national parks, lakes and rivers, the Transport and Topography dataset details Australia’s transport infrastructure and unique topography.
The dataset presents location information relating to people, activities and resources. It includes spatial data on Australia’s roads, rail networks, airports, national parks, lakes and rivers.
Transport and Topography is underpinned by a road centreline layer of over 2.7 million kilometres of roads, together with more than 30 feature types within its transport, hydrology and greenspace themes. The dataset includes:
National coverage of the roads network in Australia, from major highways to outback tracks.
All aspects of airport infrastructure in Australia, from international airports to local landing strips.
The national rail network, as well as tram lines, provided in one layer with a separate layer showing railway stations.
Major and minor bodies of water, such as oceans, lakes, dams and rivers, and major water supply infrastructure, such as pipes.
Recreational parks as well as national parks, golf courses, botanical gardens and other reserves.
How can you use Transport and Topography?
The dataset is for those who require a graphical representation of the locations of transport networks, waterways and green spaces.
Authoritative national information about highways, main roads, coastlines, major drainage, railway line and key locality points is critical to emergency response planning, management and delivery.
Undertake service delivery analysis, including remoteness indexing and service centre location placement, using transport network data and topography information.
Fuel Tax calculator
Companies operating vehicles in Australia can claim Fuel Tax Credit if they prove ‘off road’ operations. Use roads data to distinguish between private and public roads and calculate your Road Use Charge refund.
