The catalogue allows download of data in GIS and other formats. To access this, once you have searched and found a layer(s), please click on the title of each to bring up the download options. Due to problems currently beyond our control, downloading vector data from our catalogue in shapefile format will not display correctly in its present form (the coordinate fields are written in the wrong order). However, there are a couple of workarounds:

  1. Copy the URL for the shapefile download option (e.g. right-click and select copy link) and paste the URL into a new browser window. Add the following text to the end of the URL before hitting the Enter button: &srsNAME=EPSG:4283
  2. Use other formats available from the menu choice and convert, e.g. download kml and convert to shapefile.
  3. If you are still experiencing problems please contact MRT.

MRT wishes to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and will endeavour to fix this problem as soon as possible.
