New Micro Level Geography

The Information Paper: Draft Mesh Blocks Australia, 2005 (cat. no. 1209.0.55.001) was released on 9 September, in conjunction with the Mesh Blocks (Draft) Digital Boundaries, Australia (cat. no. 1209.0.30.001).

Mesh Blocks are a new micro level of geography which will form a comprehensive infrastructure for assigning a house, farm, factory or business to its correct Mesh Block based upon its street address. It is intended to become the basic building block of all statistical, political and administrative geography in Australia.
The paper seeks comments on the draft Mesh Blocks from statistical and spatial data users who may have knowledge of local conditions that was not available to the ABS during the design process. Feedback on the draft boundaries for Mesh Blocks will be an important input to their usability and long-term stability.
