Digital Cadastre Modernisation Project

The Victorian Government is upgrading the authoritative map of the state's property boundaries, known as the 'digital cadastre'. This investment ensures that one of Victoria's most important datasets is more accurate, modern and easily accessible.

The Digital Cadastre Modernisation Project complements existing Government initiatives such as Smart Planning and ePlan and will enhance the accuracy Vicmap, the state's authoritative map base.

View the YouTube clip to see how the modernised digital cadastre will transform the way information is gathered, stored and accessed, providing a foundation for improved digital property and land registration services for Victorians.


DELWP Core Spatial Data Services Strategy 2018-2023

The Victorian Government (led by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning - DELWP) has been a core spatial data service provider for over 40 years. The data services we provide are highly valued and make a significant contribution to the Victorian economy.

The DELWP Core Spatial Data Services Strategy sets the five-year strategic direction for how DELWP will source, aggregate, maintain and provide access to Victoria’s core spatial data. It reconfirms our focus on being the trusted source of core spatial data services for Victoria, strengthened by a new focus on helping government, industry and the community to generate value from spatial data.

We have listened to our customers, suppliers and stakeholders and are enhancing our service delivery so our customer interactions continue to be a positive experience. DELWP’s core spatial data services include Vicmap data, Coordinated Imagery Program and GPSnet and other services such as VicmapAPI

We have a plan to make sure we deliver tangible benefits to our customers and will strive to continually improve through engagement, good governance, reporting and annual review.
