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 Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) of changes required to Vicmap core spatial data products.
The Vicmap Editing Service (VES) provides information for users, including a series of Quick Guides.
How does it work?
VES enables users to notify the DELWP 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.
VES is also used to submit naming proposals to Geographic Names Victoria (GNV) to name or rename a road, feature or locality, or to amend a locality boundary.
Naming authorities such as councils use VES to submit their naming proposals to GNV.
For example; Local Government use VES to submit naming proposals for roads, geographic features (i.e. parks, reserves, playgrounds etc.) and localities.
Who can use VES?
Currently VES is only available to authorised users.
Downloadable information videos and a VES User Manual are available to assist VES users.
