About Queensland Globe

Queensland Globe is our latest mapping and data application and is implemented inside the Google Earth™ application. As an interactive online tool, Queensland Globe allows you to view and explore Queensland maps, imagery (including up-to-date satellite images) and other spatial data.

The Queensland Globe is part of the Queensland Government's open data strategy.

Some of the layers you can choose to view include:

  • places (e.g. population centre, suburb)
  • boundaries (e.g. coastline, local government, electorate, postcode)
  • roads (e.g. arterial road, minor road)
  • rail (e.g. railway line, railway station)
  • transport (e.g. ferry, mall, busway, path, track)
  • addresses
  • land parcel (e.g. property boundary, property label)
  • land parcel tenures (e.g. freehold, national park, state forest, state land).
