Mapping with Google Earth®



A feature of SEIFA 2011 is the release of KMZ files that can be opened in Google Earth®, allowing the indexes to be viewed. The KMZ files are available under the downloads tab.

The KMZ files released are for viewing thematic maps of deciles. There is a file for each index by each geographic level.

The available geographic levels are: 54,805 Statistical Area Level 1 (SA1) areas; 8,529 State Suburbs (SSCs); 2,516 Postal Areas (POA); 2,214 Statistical Area 2 (SA2) areas; 1,390 Statistical Local Areas (SLAs) and 577 Local Government Areas (LGAs).
