Acronym: Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric)
Publisher Geofabric Unit, Bureau of Meteorology
Created: 02 Dec 2019
The Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric) is a specialised Geographic Information System (GIS). It registers the spatial relationships between important hydrological features such as rivers, water bodies, catchments, aquifers and monitoring points.
By detailing the spatial dimensions of these hydrofeatures and how they are connected, we are able to visualise and model how water is stored, transported and used through the landscape.
