Alternative National Data Sources:

  • Non-Standardised Dataset:

    • If your agency and/or State capabilities require non-standardised cross border bushfire operational boundary data we recommend that you refer to the EM-LINK capability and/or negotiate access to each jurisdictional data capability individually.

  • Standardised Dataset:

    • GA are unaware of any other standardised National Bushfire Operational Boundary Products.

    • If you wish to create your own cross border dataset please get in contact with GA ( and they will provide you with the raw FME aggregation scripts.
