Geological spatial data submission standards

This practice direction forms part of the Queensland Resources Reporting Lodgement, GSQ Open Data Portal, Reporting Guideline 2020 to assist industry with spatial data lodgement.

The purpose is to outline in greater detail, formatting and content requirements to ensure the standardisation of spatial information and provide consistency of submissions received, enabling the department to more effectively standardise, process and integrate the data.

Submitted data must meet the standards for content and file formats as set out in this document. Lodgement will be via use of submission templates, designed to guide the user in assembling data, and to ensure consistency with the defined data formats and standards.

This practice direction has been divided into two sections covering the submission of spatial information as digital spatial data and digital maps.
