What is VES?

The Vicmap Editing Service (VES) is a notification and change management service that enables registered public users to advise the Department of Transport and Planning (DTP) of changes required to Vicmap core spatial data products.

VES provides information for users, including a series of Quick Guides.

How does it work?

VES enables users to notify DTP of errors in Vicmap datasets or to request changes to improve the accuracy of data.

This is done by raising a change request.

VES has custom workflows to ensure change requests are managed, tracked and monitored at every stage.

Launch VES

Local Government users

VES now includes an inbuilt change validator to verify critical property and address data provided by local government. Read more on the M1 Validator release.

Access the standard M1 form and find further information under M1 process.

Naming proposals

VES is also used by naming authorities such as municipal councils, emergency services and Traditional Owner organisations to submit naming proposals to Geographic Names Victoria (GNV).

Naming proposals can be submitted to name or rename a road, feature (such as a park, reserve or playground) or locality, or to amend a locality boundary.

Who can use VES?

VES is currently only available to authorised users.

Downloadable video tutorials and a VES User Manual are available to assist VES users:
