About the Geoscience Product Catalogue

Product catalogue

Main features

The Geological Survey of NSW maintains a product inventory of 240 hardcopy maps, 70 geoscientific/geophysical data packages on CD or DVD ROM and various publications.

The new online Geoscience Product Catalogue provides both spatial (map-based) and textual (title/keyword) tools to search for and purchase these products. It allows the user to:

  • Employ filters to limit the search to specific product types or remove products from search results.
  • Perform advanced searches by locality or latitude and longitude coordinates, including the ability to apply a search radius.
  • View detailed product information, including ordering or downloading information where downloads are available.
  • View published maps in Google Maps or Google Earth.
  • View the related products.
  • Combine keyword, map-based, advanced search functions and filters for a combined search.

Price change notice

Due to increased printing and labour costs, some of our map products have increased in price, effective July 1, 2011. "New generation" maps on folding map design templates (generally printed 2003 onwards) will increase to $19.80 including GST. More recent geological series maps have also been printed on synthetic papers, which are more expensive to produce, but very tough and weather resistant. Older in-print geological maps (generally pre 2003) will remain at the older price of $11 including GST. Print on demand map charges (for out of print or provisional maps) are $66.00 including GST. Customers are reminded that free downloads of images and data for each map are now provided on the pages above.
