Geospatial Information: Introduction

Info on UWA's printed maps, online interactive maps, SLIP etc

Welcome

The Library has a map collection of over 33,500 maps consisting of sheet maps, folded maps and atlases.  Most maps are located in the Map Library on the second floor of the Barry J Marshall Library.  This collection is accessible during the normal opening hours of the Barry J Marshall Library.

Some historical maps are housed in Special Collections in the Reid Library.  Users requiring access to these maps should contact the Librarian in Special Collections. Historical maps of some Perth suburbs are available through RetroMaps.

The collection's main geographical focus is on Australia and Western Australia in particular; as well as Southeast Asia and the world as a whole.

This guide contains information to assist you to find and use the physical maps in the Library's collection and, to access the GIS data sets available through the Library and on the Internet.
