Geoscape Roads, Rail and Airports offer a detailed spatial picture of Australia’s transport network.
Geoscape Transport offers a single source of detailed, authoritative datasets with national consistency. It provides a reliable base map for transport analysis, infrastructure planning, urban planning and more. Combining Roads, Rail and Airports can enhance the analysis of intermodal transportation for freight route optimisation.
With Geoscape you can have the confidence that the transport data you’re using is grounded in authoritative sources and is continuously updated.

How can you use Roads, Rail and Airports data?
Enhance your transport analytics and cross-border route planning. As a digital representation of a connected road network, Geoscape Roads is a base for analysis and decision-making.
Use the national, authoritative roads data in Geoscape Roads to model traffic flow and congestion. Analyse and predict the impact of new infrastructure developments or major events.
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 Change refund.
Represent Australia’s roads on a map or other method of visual display. Use the road geometry, name labels, route numbers and consistent classifications in Geoscape Roads for your visualisation.

- One-way or two-way traffic direction.
- Public or private road access.
- Road surface – sealed or unsealed.
- Minimum vehicle type required, for example, 2WD.
- Coordinates of latitude and longitude.
Rail lines and stations represent the freight, passenger and light rail networks.
- Railway Lines a national spatial linear representation of rail.
- Rail Names provide the names of the railway lines.
- Rail stations represent the location and name for Rail Stations across the rail network.
- Hierarchy identifying whether a rail line is publicly or privately owned.
Airports, landing strips, taxiways.
- Airports provide the location of each airport across Australia.
- Airport Name identifying the name of the airport.
- Airport landing strips and taxiways are represented by spatial pictures.
