NSW Gravity Model Reaches 90% Completion Point

The Live NSW NSW Gravity Model has reached the 90% data capture point, and preliminary data has been made publicly available via the Geological Survey of NSW’s MinView online portal.

The NSW Gravity Model aims to provide a consistent high-quality, high-density dataset of measurements, comprising two-kilometre spacings across the whole state — around 800,000 square kilometres — and out to 50 kilometres off the coast.

Capture of the data is being funded by the NSW Government through the Digital Restart Fund as part of the Live NSW Spatial Digital Twin program.

The purpose of the new gravity dataset is to assist and improve:

  • Exploration and management of groundwater stores
  • Earthquake hazard detection​
  • Inform land use decision making​
  • Bushfire and natural disaster recovery efforts
  • Large infrastructure projects
  • Property, construction, agriculture, mining & surveying, and
  • Flood mapping
