Geospatial data is gathered from ground surveys, aerial and satellite imagery and is used to produce a wide range of digital and hard copy products and services.
Spatial Services offers a range of maps, spatial datasets, aerial photography and other imagery of NSW, which you can view and / or purchase online or over-the-counter at our Bathurst office.
Spatial Services is now providing spatial data as web services. The web services have been released under open access licenses as part of the NSW Government Open Data Policy to support new and innovative uses of NSW Government information. The web services allow users to access the most up to date information without having to store and maintain it in their own systems or applications. The web services can be used in multiple ways e.g. direct use, mashups, mobile apps and spatial systems.
