Natural resources and mines data

We are committed to the Queensland Government's open data initiative.

Our updated open data strategy for the first time lists all of our datasets, including those we plan to publish and those we do not plan to publish, and explains why some datasets will remain restricted. Data is available in a variety of standard formats.

Data is also available from our other specialist data sources.

Open data portal

Data includes more than 500 data resources covering the range of our activities and responsibilities. You can search for resources in the data portal by theme, topic or department name. Data is updated at varying frequencies, including fortnightly (e.g. titles activity), monthly (e.g. coal statistics) and annually (e.g. corporate reporting).

Queensland Globe

The Queensland Globe allows users to view and explore Queensland maps, imagery and other specialist data inside the Google Earth™ application.

Queensland Spatial Catalogue

The Queensland Spatial Catalogue includes geographic datasets, databases, models, map images and map services.


MinesOnlineMaps provides access to geological, exploration and mining data.
