    • The Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric) V2.0Elizabeth R. McDonald02 6232 352216 November 2011
    • Outline1. Geofabric collaborators2. The Geofabric Project3. The Geofabric System4. Overview of Geofabric V2.0 product suite5. The value of the Geofabric
    • 1. Geofabric collaborators* Agency contactsTony Boston Shane Crossman* Paul Box* Michael Hutchinson*Elizabeth McDonald* Nerida Wilson David Lemon Janet SteinDarren Smith Hamish Anderson Rob Atkinson John GallantMalcolm Parnell Trevor DowlingMatthew Brooks Arthur ReadInna Nogeste Will FrancisHelen Bloustein Rick Meng Plus State agencies involved in Modernisation and Extension Fund projects
    • 2. The Geofabric project• Geofabric Phase 1 - V1.0 – launched on 10 October 2010 – 1:250,000 scale, based on TOPO 250K and 9 second DEM• Geofabric Phase 2 - V2.0 – launched here at the spatial@gov conference 2011 – 1:250,000 scale, based on TOPO 250k and 9 second DEM
    • The Geofabric Project• Geofabric Phase 3 – V? – to be launched in 2013 (test catchments will be released earlier) – ~ 1:100,000 scale, based on regional scale hydro and 1 second DEM
    • 3. The Geofabric SystemSource: CSIRO WIRADA
    • Geofabric system lifecycleSource: CSIRO WIRADA
    • Conceptual Model 1. Identification of important water features River confluences River outflow to sea Inland sink Monitored featuresImage Source:Bing Maps
    • Conceptual Model2. Support for multiple representations
    • Conceptual Model 3. Supporting evolution through identifiersComplex vs Simple Geography Complex vs Simple Topology Contracted Node
    • 4. Geofabric V2.0 product suite• Updated from V1.0 – Geofabric Surface Cartography – Geofabric Surface Network – Geofabric Surface Catchments• New to V2.0 – Geofabric Hydrology Reporting Catchments – Geofabric Hydrology Reporting Regions – Geofabric Groundwater Cartography
    • Geofabric V2.0 product relationshipsKeySH = Surface hydrologyHR = Hydrology reportingGW = Groundwater
    • Geofabric V2.0 products data formats• ESRI File Geodatabase – 15 November 2011• ESRI Shapefile – by end of 2011• OGC compliant web services WMS and WFS – in 2012
    • Geofabric Documentation
    • 5. The value of the Geofabric? The Geofabric underpins our water information activitiesVisualisation and mapping Catchment contributing areas Hydrological modelling Water reporting
