OpenStreetMap - Road Network (Australia) 2020

This road network dataset was created from data extracted from OpenStreetMap (OSM) across the geographic area of Australia on 05 August 2020. Its purpose is to represent motor-vehicle traversable public roads within Australia. Note, however, as the original dataset is built by a community of mappers, there is no guarantee of its spatial or attribute accuracy. Use at your own risk.

This road network has been topologically corrected for the purposes of network analysis for motor vehicles.

For more information about the map features represented in this dataset (including their attributes), refer to the OpenStreetMap Wiki: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features.

Please note:

  • The original data for this dataset has been downloaded from Geofabrik: http://download.geofabrik.de/australia-oceania/australia.html on 05 August 2020.
  • AURIN has filtered the original data and omitted features to present the topologically correct, motor-vehicle traversable road network.
  • Due to changes in tagging, previous versions of OSM may not be comparable with this release.
  • Roads presented in this dataset may not be traversable by pedestrians or cyclists.
