Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric)

The Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric) is a specialised Geographic Information System (GIS). It registers the spatial relationships between important hydrological features such as rivers, water bodies, aquifers and monitoring points.


By detailing the spatial dimensions of these hydrofeatures and how they are connected, we are able to see how water is stored, transported and used through the landscape.

To learn more about the Geofabric watch our short information video. For a detailed explanation and demonstration of the Geofabric watch our webinar.

An ESRI sample toolset has been developed for the Geofabric to perform common hydrological tasks such as creating catchment areas for a set of user defined points. Read the tutorial for more information.
