Overview

Vicmap Admin provides authoritative administrative boundary information for Victoria. It enables customers to locate and visualise administrative boundaries such as local government areas, suburbs (localities) and postcodes.

Applications of the Admin data include asset or product location and market research. Our customers include Victoria’s utilities, government agencies and emergency service organisations.

Vicmap Admin combines designated and gazetted boundaries of administrative interest across Victoria, into one easy to use package.

We use authoritative sources through custodianship agreements to produce the Vicmap Admin product. For example:

  • Local Government Area (LGA) boundaries are compiled under the direction of Local Government Victoria within the Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning.
  • Electoral data is supplied by the Victorian Electoral Commission.
  • Postcodes are compiled using the latest boundary alignment information supplied directly from Australia Post.

Vicmap Admin includes:

  • LGA boundaries and names
  • Locality boundaries and names
  • Postcode boundaries and numbers
  • State Electoral boundaries and names
  • Local Government Ward boundaries and names
  • Parish and Township boundaries and names
  • State Government Departmental boundaries and names
  • CFA Regions, Districts and Total Fire Ban Districts boundaries and names
  • MFB Regions and Districts boundaries and names

Vertical alignment is based on the cadastral boundaries of Vicmap Property.
