Regolith landform maps

Regolith mapping across NSW has been completed to understand the surficial mantle of weathered rock, sediments, soils, biotic complexes and water that are formed by the natural processes of weathering, erosion, transportation and deposition. Most regolith maps in NSW were completed as part of the Cooperative Research Centre - Landscape Environments and Mineral Exploration (CRC LEME).

Sixty one new regolith-landform maps ranging from 1:5 000 to 1:500 000 scale are available. All maps are print on demand. Where available, digital scans (JPEG format), rectified images (ECW format) and GIS vector data (ESRI Shapefile and MapInfo Table format) are provided as free downloads on the individual pages. Each map is viewable in Google Earth and Google Maps.
