Queensland Globe

The Queensland Globe is an online interactive tool that turns physical, geographical and spatial data about a particular location into map format.

Go to the Queensland Globe

Use the Globe to access over 600 spatial data layers on Queensland roads, rail, property, topography, mining and exploration, land valuations, land parcel information, water levels and more.

The Queensland Globe has been upgraded. We have kept the best features of the original Globe and added new capabilities to make it even more accessible.

Using the Globe

To explore map layers within the Globe, you can:

  • search by area of interest
  • view groups of layers by topic
  • show or hide individual layers.

Toggle the map legend to see what features are visible on your map. You can also view metadata about layers for more information and change the layer settings to customise your map view. In some layers you can query data attributes to create an advanced search view of the layer.

Changes to Google Earth Globe
