The New South Wales government has tied its spatial data with Google Earth to help better visualise the information and historic imagery.

The NSW Globe tool was launched over the weekend by the Minister for Finance and Services Andrew Constance.

“By combining spatial data with detailed satellite and aerial imagery, the tool is able to display property, local government, and electoral boundaries, as well as road and rail networks,” Constance said in a statement.

The spatial data includes information from global positioning systems and geographic information systems.

“NSW has combined spatial data about land surveys, titles, valuations, and aerial photography to facilitate the creation of tools for managing land use,” Constance said.

The minister said that the tool could find relevance in the real estate industry, since home buyers and agents would have more accurate information to draw upon. The information could be valuable for potential or existing home owners also, giving them a chance to view historical information, such as aerial photographs from the 1940s, as well as flood maps.

“By using a platform that is familiar and easy to use, NSW Globe will allow the public to view information about their property anywhere, at any time.”

The database is can be accessed by scholars or anyone through a Google Labs project called the Google Books Ngram Viewer. You type in a word, and it charts the usage of that word over time.
