Details

Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania (which are states of Australia) and the Northern Territory (which is a ‘territory’ of Australia) are represented as polygonal regions.

Offshore territories, and smaller mainland territories, are not shown.

The dataset austates is a tessellation object (class "tess") whose tiles are the states and territories.

The coordinates are latitude and longitude in degrees, so the space is effectively a Mercator projection of the earth.
