“Elvis Elevation and Depth is a cloud-based system allowing users to easily discover and obtain Australian elevation and bathymetry data available within their area of interest. It is developed as a partnership between participating agencies under the Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping (ICSM) and brings together open data from Commonwealth, state and territory governments, making it accessible from a convenient central source. Data can be quickly accessed through Elvis to support efficient planning, research and decision-making by government, industry, research communities and any others requiring the data.”
