About the toolkit

We’ve created a toolkit to help you get ready for the spatially improved Vicmap that will result from Digital Cadastre Modernisation. On this page you can find information to step you through the toolkit.

Launch the toolkit below or read on to further understand how we are helping you get ready.

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 in 2023 and continue throughout.

The following Vicmap products will be changing as the spatially upgraded data becomes available in Vicmap.

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 early 2023. 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 adjusted data release page or sign up to receive the Vicmap change notices.

We will always publish a Vicmap change notice before any changes appear in Vicmap.

For more information about DCM and how you can get ready for the new spatially upgraded Vicmap, see our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

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 transition to using the spatially improved Vicmap.
