GEOSPATIAL WEB SERVICES PROVIDED BY THE ABS


The ABS provides geospatial web services for the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) regions. This includes the ABS Structures, areas defined by the ABS, and Non-ABS Structures, areas not designed by the ABS but approximated using areas from the ASGS Main Structure. The tables below are a list of the uniform resource identifiers (URI) that provide access to all of the ASGS Structures that are accessible through ABS Geospatial Web Services.
