Geoscape Buildings - 3D data for Australia's Built Environment
17.6 million buildings now available
Geoscape Buildings captures extensive 3D data about Australia's built environment.
This initiative is based on aerial and satellite imagery
Geoscape Buildings includes:
Maximum roof height (above ground)
Average eave height (above ground)
Elevation (above sea level)
Primary roof material classification
Solar panel PV polygons and indicators
Swimming pool indicator
Zone and residential indicator
Image capture date
Review dates for Buildings, Swimming Pools and Solar Panels
Linkages to Geoscape G-NAF, Cadastre and Property
Building roof polygon (including number of vertices and roof area)
Raster data includes Surface cover and Tree cover (the latter with height)

Geoscape Buildings - customised Callpoint edition
Geoscape Buildings is a rather complex dataset. To help our customers, our customised edition includes additional useful attribution. We perform the required processes on a quarterly update basis.
The following are suggested applications across telco, professional services and health care.
For further details including licensing please contact us.
Telecoms - fibre optic
A combination of G-NAF and Cadastre may not meet all Fibre optic use cases.
The polygon data within Geoscape Buildings can assist more accurate costings for new runs. It can also better meet operational needs, particularly where multiple buildings are associated with the one primary address.

The green dots represent the coordinates of addresses, and are sourced from Geoscape's G-NAF dataset
The black outlines represent land parcel boundaries, sourced from Geoscape’s Cadastre dataset
The light blue street polyline layer is sourced from Geoscape’s Roads dataset
Telecoms - wireless
Geoscape Building's outline, elevation and other attributes can provide important input to your RF propogation/ wireless network coverage modelling.

The blue street polyline layer is sourced from Geoscape's separate Roads dataset
When coupled with ABS data, Geoscape Building’s zoning and other attribution can support a range of geo-demographic modelling applications.

Access to Surface Cover data can be useful to GIS analysis in the health care research sector.

Tree heights are depicted by depth of green shading
Solar PV polygons
The Solar dataset provides polygons and attribution to support applications including market identification, modelling and analysis.
Attributes include area, estimated power output and PV technology type (monocrystalline, polycrystalline, thin film) per panel,

Tree canopies and heights
Geoscape’s 2m Tree Cover data provides height attribution. This can prove useful in applications from conservation to wireless telecoms.
