3D Mineral mapping of Queensland - Version 2 ASTER and related geoscience products

The digital 3-dimenional (3D) mineral mapping suite of Queensland comprises ~20 “standardized” products at the spectral resolution of the ASTER (Advanced Space-borne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) sensor and generated from publicly-available satellite, airborne, field and drill core spectral data spanning the visible near i... more

The raw ASTER data used in this project are freely available from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Centre (LPDAAC) ( as well as NASA’s REVERB ( and Japan’s Advanced Institute for Science Technology (AIST) The Australian ASTER Geoscience (V1) Maps can be downloaded from CSIRO’s Data Access Portal (DAP) ( and Geoscience Australia’s Australian Geoscience Information Network, Geoscience Australia (AUSGIN) ( The NVCL data can be downloaded from or The National Geochemical Survey of Australia (NGSA) spectral data is accessible via CSIRO’s Data Access Portal

All the derived geoscience products were developed as part of a collaborative project between the CSIRO and the Geological Survey of Queensland. This project was funded by the Geological Survey of Queensland as part of the Industry Priorities Initiative, under the Future Resources Program of the Queensland Government, as well as CSIRO Minerals. Access to NGSA samples was provided through the help of Patrice de Caritat and Matilda Thomas from Geoscience Australia.

About this Project

3D Mineral Map of Queensland - Stage 1

One of the main objectives of the CSIRO-GSQ Queensland 3D Mineral Mapping project was public delivery of state-wide ASTER geoscience maps corrected for a number of issues, especially green and dry vegetation cover, that hindered optimum geological use of the Australian ASTER Version 1 (V1) geoscience maps. These corrected Version 2 (V2) ASTER min... more
