SARIG, the South Australian Resource Information Gateway, is a mapping portal that delivers a diverse range of open geoscience data, information and products for the mining, petroleum and exploration community. The portal is also available to landowners, native title holders and community. The portal also provides potential investors a key information source, accessing industry indicator statistics and renewable energy, mining, exploration project information, native title and other information in South Australia.

SARIG is best viewed on a device the size of an iPad or larger.

  • Google Chrome is the recommended internet browser and will provide the best performance, other browsers may cause issues with display and download options.
  • No additional software or plug-ins are required to use the SARIG application.

If the spatial data is under the custodianship of the Mineral Resources Division or Energy Resources Division of the Government of South Australia you can download the map layers from SARIG.

SARIG delivers map layers in multiple formats:

Vector data

  • ESRI Shapefiles, Geodatabases
  • MapInfo Tab files
  • Google Earth KMZ

Raster Data

  • GeoTIF (Georeferenced TIFF)
  • ERS (Earth Resource Mapping Satellite)
  • ECW (Enhanced Compression Wavelet)
  • Petrosys (Petrosys Software)

Web Services

  • Web Map Services (WMS)
  • Web Feature Services (WFS)

The Department for Energy and Mining will begin delivering GDA 2020-based location data on 12 August 2019. 

To facilitate the transition, both GDA94 and GDA2020 coordinates will be delivered by SARIG – with the plan to phase out the delivery of GDA94-based data by late 2020.

Vector spatial layers will be delivered in geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) based on the Geocentric Datum of Australia 2020 (GDA2020) and Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94).

Raster spatial layers and web services will only be delivered in geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) based on the Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94) due to the practical constraints of reprocessing of data and current software limitations. These datasets and services will be updated to GDA2020 during any future reprocessing or software updates.

GDA2020 is the current Australian standard based on the International Terrestrial Reference Frame 2014 (ITRF2014). Specifications for GDA2020 can be found on the Geoscience Australia website.
