The Queensland Globe is an online interactive tool that turns physical, geographical and spatial data about a particular location into map format.
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.
- Access to real-time spatial data – anywhere, anytime – through your computer, tablet or smartphone web browser.
- New measuring tools and the ability to save, share and download maps and searches.
- Pinpoint your location and access data when in the field.
- Browse information about single parcels of land, including a property’s official annual valuation, closest public transport routes and more.
- Explore pre-set topics of interest for faster search results.
- Create multiple places of interest to explore a range of locations or different data layers.
- Add your own data, or share what you have discovered with others.
- Login to save your work for ongoing use.
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
Google Earth Enterprise, the server software that hosts the original Queensland Globe, is being decommissioned. Both versions of the Queensland Globe will run in parallel for a short period to give you time to transition to the new version.
