  • I-Note

Contains digital boundaries in ESRI Shape and MapInfo table formats for Draft Mesh Blocks 2005 covering all of Australia including Other Territories (Christmas Is, Cocos Is and Jervis Bay) and some of Rural NSW.

All Mesh Blocks are closed polygons. Attributes for each polygon are:

  • MB_Code
  • MB_type
  • MB_Category

The data are unprojected GDA 94 latitudes and longitudes.

Mesh Block boundaries are intended to be free or available at the marginal cost of transfer. They can be copied and passed on to third parties without incurring royalties to the ABS. Where they are passed to a third party the ABS should be acknowledged as the custodian and the boundaries should be clearly described as Draft Mesh Blocks, Australia, 2005.
