Brief description

The Geology of Australia dataset documents the distribution and age of major stratigraphic, intrusive and medium to high-grade metamorphic rock units of onshore Australia. The data set was compiled to use at the 1:5,000,000 scale. The units distinguished/mapped mainly represent stratigraphic supergroups, regional intrusive associations and regional metamorphic complexes.

This dataset is a generalised version of the 1:2,500,000 scale Geology (AGSOCAT No. 314111)

Lineage

The 1:5 000 000 Geology of Australia dataset was generalised from the 1:2 500 000 scale dataset. The 1:2 500 000 dataset was compiled from digital data, mainly at 1:2 500 000 scale, supplied by AGSO, GSWA, NTGS, PIRSA, GSQ, GSTAS, GSNSW and GSVIC as part of the National Geoscience Mapping Accord (NGMA) and from data obtained from many other groups. Standardisation of the data from these multiple sources was carried out by the authors of the data set. In order to synthesise data from a variety of sources into a coherent product, the degree and nature of modification of the source data varied from case to case.
