What is happening?
The Digital Cadastre Modernisation Project (DCM) is a five-year initiative to transform the legacy map of Victoria’s property boundaries into a data-driven, spatially improved, 3D enabled digital representation of the cadastre.
The improved property and parcel boundary positions generated by DCM will be used to spatially improve all Vicmap products.
These improvements will result in changes to Vicmap, reflecting more accurate positions for parcel boundaries in the digital cadastre.
We will start publishing changes to Vicmap from October 2022 and continue through until end 2023.
The following Vicmap products will be changing as the spatially upgraded data becomes available in Vicmap.
|Vicmap Product||Vicmap Tables|
|Vicmap Address||Address Points|
|Vicmap Admin||Local Government Area, Locality, Parish, Postcode and Township|
|Vicmap Crown Land Tenure||Tenure and Government Road|
|Vicmap Features of Interest (FoI)||FoI Line and FoI Area|
|Vicmap Hydro||Water Channels|
|Vicmap Index||Framework Boundary|
|Vicmap Property||Parcel, Property, Road Casement, Easement, Annotation, CAD Area Bdy, CAD Point and CAD Line|
|Vicmap Transport||Airport Area, Railway and Road|
There is a data schema to support the Digital Cadastre Modernisation changes to Vicmap.
Refer to Vicmap change notice 272 for changes to the Vicmap Property data model:
When is the change happening?
Changes to Vicmap will commence in October 2022. The spatial upgrade to Vicmap will be rolled-out by Local Government Area.
To find out when your area will be updated you can visit the Vicmap Spatial Upgrade page where we will post up-to-date information about the timing of each upgraded area
What do I need to do to get ready?
If your organisation manages business datasets that rely on Vicmap for positioning, then we recommend you use the Readiness Toolkit.
The toolkit will help you to better understand how the changes to Vicmap may affect your organisation and may assist you to create a change management plan for when your organisation is ready to start using the spatially improved Vicmap for your area of interest.
