Geoscience Australia - Major Ports 2015

This dataset presents locations of major ports in Australia. The major ports were digitized in 2012 from the library of imagery held within Geoscience Australia. Imagery used ranged from 0.15m to 2.5m resolution. The database was revised in August 2014; the accuracy and completeness of the dataset reviewed and revised where required. The first version of this database was subsequently released on the GA website in March 2015.
