Queensland Globe is a free plug-in developed by the Queensland Government to release as much data online as possible to encourage the private sector and the broader community to reuse data and develop innovative new services and solutions.
As an interactive online tool, it allows businesses and potential investors to view a wide range of spatial data through Google Earth, including:
- addresses, localities and boundaries
- road and rail networks
- land parcels and tenure
- areas affected by flood
- topographical maps
Queensland Globe is an initiative of the Department of Natural Resources and Mines. It was released in April 2013 as part of the Queensland Government’s Open Data Strategy.
