The map is an attempt to represent the language, tribal or nation groups of the Aboriginal peoples of Australia. Aboriginal groups were included on the map based on the published resources available between 1988 and 1994 which determine the cultural, language and trade boundaries and relationships between groups.

The map was developed along with the Encyclopedia of Aboriginal Australia as part of a research project. The Encyclopedia of Aboriginal Australia is available in libraries and contains more detailed information about the groups represented on the map.

The map was produced for a general reading audience. The map is not definitive and is not the only information available which maps language and social groups.

The information on which the map is based is contested and may not be agreed to by some traditional custodians. The borders between groups are purposefully represented as slightly blurred. They do not claim to be exact.

The map was produced before native title legislation and is not suitable for use in native title or other land claims.
