Map your own data tool

Software by InstantAtlas Community

This mapping facility enables users to map their own data through the InstantAtlas Community, and is provided with the support of GeoWise, developers of the InstantAtlas software used by PHIDU.

You can map data for three geographical structures in Australia:
  1. Postcode
  2. Population Health Area (PHA) for more information and a full list of PHAs click here
  3. Local Government Area (LGA)

Requirements for your data


The boundary files for mapping postcode data are those supplied by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). They are called postal area boundaries and approximate postcode boundaries; a postal area is created by allocating whole Collection Districts to Australia Post postcodes.

Population Health Areas and Local Government Areas

To map data by PHA and LGA, your data must be on the 2016 ASGS boundaries. PHAs (based on SA2s) and LGAs are defined by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to produce areas for the presentation and analysis of data.

Refer to the Step-by-step guide to the Map your own data tool for instructions on using the software.
