The Victorian Government is investing $45 million to bring the authoritative map of Victoria’s property boundaries into the digital age, ensuring that one of the state’s most important datasets is accurate, modern and easily accessible.
The project will deliver cost and time savings in property development and real estate and provide better information for our utilities, helping to improve location and maintenance of assets and may reduce incidents as a result of excavation, as well as enabling property boundary information to be more easily used in the broader spatial domain.
Vicmap is the state’s authoritative suite of spatial data products which provides the foundation of all mapping in Victoria. It is available as open data and accessed by more than 6,000 customers over 100 million times per year.
This project will enhance the locational accuracy of Vicmap and is key to ensuring it continues to provide the digital infrastructure Victoria needs, both now and into the future.
The digital cadastre upgrade is part of Land Use Victoria’s five-year initiative to transform the legacy map of Victoria’s property boundaries into a data-driven, spatially accurate, 2D digital representation of the cadastre.
