About the Catalogue
The Catalogue contains reports and data relating to petroleum, minerals and coal exploration and is organised into datasets under three data types:
All data is discoverable without needing to log in. The Catalogue’s search engine allows you to rapidly narrow down search results by filtering on the properties of the different data types. This means you can quickly find the information you are after.
The Catalogue is supported by a Geodata Map. This is an interactive map which allows you to visually explore datasets, which you can then download from the Catalogue.
All data stored in the Catalogue is free to download.
Reports and data associated with a dataset (report, survey or borehole) are available for download as file resources.
If you want to download data, you will need to register to use the Catalogue using a RealMe® account. After registering, you will be able to login to the Catalogue using your RealMe details.
