Spotlight on a product

Mapping Western Australia: State geological maps 1894–2015


The ‘Geological map of Western Australia’ released in December 2015 is the 14th in a series that began with the Harry P Woodward map of 1894, published six years after the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) was established. To celebrate the launch of the latest map in the series, GSWA released a book that visually documents the milestones in the geological understanding of Western Australia through the lens of each State map.

The book is available from DMP’s eBookshop. The hard copy can be purchased at a cost of $11 including GST, and the PDF is available as a free download.
