Hi there,

Interested in anyone pointing me in the right direction (no pun intended) as to where I can find the boundary coordinates for the regional areas of WA. Examples - Kimberley, Pilbara, Mid-West, Gascoyne or Murchison.

I did find it on the web a few years back but I cannot remember where I saw it.

Any help appreciated.

Cheers
Alan

Hello Alan

Are you referring to "bio-regions" or some other boundaries (local gov)?

Bioregion data is here. I haven't followed the path through the website to get to data download but assume is there somewhere. I have V 6.1 but apparently now V 7.0

If you need local Govt boundaries let me know - can send kml file

Cheers
Greg

Hi Greg,

The boundaries are definitely political, not biological.
That would be great if you could send a kml, though not exactly what I had in mind.
The info I have seen is very descriptive, such as - east to lat/long...follow river for 30kms until hill....north to lat/long etc...

Cheers
Alan

mmm - I have seen such descriptions for rural/freehold lots on very old titles but not for huge area such as the Pilbara etc..any way here is kmz for local govt boundaries. Same boundaries as shown on maps Ron N provided links to but no obligation to print out pages of co-ords :) Just open in Google Earth.

Hopefully someone will come up with exact info you are chasing.

By the way - have a good year.

Cheers
Greg

Equinox - Sorry, I'm having a little trouble grasping your request.

I understand that you probably want the W.A. region boundaries, as defined by the W.A. Dept of Regional Development.
There are many other regional boundaries - BOM, Water, Mining, etc, etc - but I guess the DRD regions are precisely the ones you want.

Secondly, there's no neat "coordinates" of the boundaries. They are all defined by maps, and they nearly all have jagged, zig-zag boundaries that would fill a book with individual coordinates.

I think this map and website will help you out somewhat.

DRD publications

Cheers, Ron.

Hi Ron,

Looking at those maps it is the LGA (Local Government Authority) Boundaries.

If I can find the coords, especially intersections of LGA's, then that would be the info I am after (The ones up north in particular).

Thanks
Alan

Hi Al, have you tried phoning Landgate or even the Dept of Mines. They may have the info you want?

Try this to Landgates Spatial Mapping

Hi Dunc,

I haven't yet as someone on here may know of the website where the info is (or was).

Landgate's maps look like they may include the info, and there are a couple of email addresses that may be able to assist; thanks

cheers

I have a set of pastoral maps of all the areas in the west. Pilbara, Gasgoyne Kimberly Goldfields ect. They have been georeferenced and show pastoral leases, miniing leases, pubic, private and aboriginal lands. I got mine from the department over there you may try there but you will have to get them georeferenced.

Hi Lindsay, sounds similar to what Dunc has mentioned - I could probably geo-reference them in Ozi...

Cheers
