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.

Updating Australia’s datum for GPS

GDA2020 is the new datum for Australia to replace the GDA94 datum used by devices with GPS navigation. It will ensure higher accuracy for GPS devices and offer some future proofing for Australia’s datum.
