This project covers 18 Victorian regional townships and includes Ararat, Ballarat, Bendigo, Castlemaine, Echuca, Horsham, Kilmore, Latrobe Valley Corridor (Drouin, Warragul, Trafalgar, Moe), Mildura, Sale, Seymour, Shepparton, Swan Hill, Traralgon, Wangaratta, Warracknabeal and Wonthaggi.

This project investigated the feasibility of extending the state's Vicmap datasets into 3D and 4D. The LiDAR captured in this project supported the generation of 3D photo mesh and building object models for a subset of the 18 townships. Complete LiDAR, Digital Elevation Models (DEM), imagery and 3D models are open data and available through the links below.

3D Models, imagery (ECW/JPG) and DEM (Esri Ascii) can be accessed via this form.

3D Models and photo mesh can be accessed via this form.
