Australian Urban Expansion Satellite Image Gallery

Australian cities and towns are constantly evolving to suit the living requirements of an ever growing population. Australia’s current population of more than 22 million in 2011 has grown significantly from approximately 15 million in 1981 with the majority of population growth occuring in Australia’s urban environment. The Geoscience Australia Australian Urban Expansion Satellite Image Gallery shows the expansion of Australia’s major towns and cities in every State and Territory since the 1980’s. Residential expansion, new infrastructure (such as freeways), and changes in environmental features including reservoirs and dams can all be seen through comparison ‘swipe’ imagery.
