Version 2.0 of the Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric) is now available featuring several new components that increase its usability and function. The Geofabric is a specialised geographic information system that maps the spatial relationships between important hydrologic features such as rivers, lakes, aquifers, catchments and monitoring points.
Version 2.0 of the Geofabric was launched at the spatial@gov Conference in November 2011 and includes improved stream connectivity and new elements, such as water storage inflow and outflow nodes.
Geofabric products are accompanied by a product guide, metadata, product schemas, data dictionaries, data product specifications and tutorials to assist users.
Development of the Geofabric is led by the Bureau of Meteorology in partnership with Geoscience Australia, the Australian National University Fenner School of Environment and Society, and CSIRO Water for a Healthy Country Flagship.
