The Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) developed this eBookshop as part of an ongoing commitment to providing comprehensive and convenient service to customers - within Australia and across the world. This eBookshop hosts geoscience products released by the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA). Generic DMP publications, including strategic policy documents, are listed on the DMP website.


You can view, download and print free PDFs of all books, articles and maps from GSWA's online catalogue. The VIEW PDF icon in eBookshop links to the PDF in the online catalogue. For data packages, the link is to a PDF that describes the content and coverage of the package. GIS files (ESRI and MAPINFO formats) for maps published since 1991 are available as a free download from the Data and Software Centre, and links to these files are provided on the details page for maps. For some publications, eBookshop has links to downloadable geochemical and geophysical data, and to zipped files in the online catalogue.
