A digitally transformed cadastre that provides certainty will lead to more efficient land registration processes, protection of landholder rights, and improved land use planning and land tax calculations for the state of Victoria.
Victoria’s DCM is part of Land Use Victoria’s longer-term initiatives to transform the legacy spatial database of Victoria’s cadastral parcel and property boundaries into a data-driven, spatially accurate, 2D digital representation of the cadastre.
The project is expected to speed up land development and social and economic processes, enable more efficient automated land transactions and enhance the accuracy and useability of Vicmap by the private sector, emergency services and all levels of government. Enhanced property boundary information is more easily used in the broader spatial domain.
These benefits are being realised through a visionary and radical transformation of the processes by which survey plans are lodged and leveraged in a new business-as-usual process that continually enhances the underpinning spatial representation of the Victoria’s cadastral fabric.
