Our history

PSMA began as a government consortium, formed in 1993 to create an integrated national digital base-map for the 1996 National Census.

Following the success of this base-map, it was made available for commercial use.

PSMA Australia was then established as a company in 2001, operating as the hub of relationship management between data custodians, data managers and clients.
