Prepared by Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) – Land Use Victoria and Spatial Vision in consultation with a stakeholder working group, the DCM Readiness Toolkit supports users of the Vicmap product portfolio plan to adopt and integrate the DCM adjusted data into their enterprise and operational practices.
These tools aim to assist a wide range of government and non-government sectors in preparing for DCM including Local Government Authorities, Utility Companies, Catchment Management Authorities and Essential Service Organisations.
Adoption of these resources by Vicmap users will also help inform the Department’s understanding of industry readiness for adopting and using the new map database.
The project delivers a toolkit of resources for organisations to plan for and undertake the adoption of the DCM adjusted Vicmap data, including:
- A self-assessment survey tool (Readiness Index) that helps organisations understand their level of readiness to integrate the DCM adjusted Vicmap product suite into their enterprise, plus;
- A comprehensive set of Readiness Guidelines and resources including Data Audit and Business Case templates.
The Department is committed to helping the Vicmap user community making a smooth transition towards the future digital cadastre with minimised disruption to business processes and maximum benefits realised to industry. DELWP selected Spatial Vision to deliver this project due to their deep understanding of different industry sectors and were extremely pleased with the outcomes, according to Mark Grant, DCM Project Manager.
The preparation of these tools was greatly informed by a working group of geospatial professionals representing local government, utilities and emergency services. “Their insight was crucial to the success of the project”, said Graeme Martin, Principal Consultant for Spatial Vision.
Spatial Vision along with its IT business Lapis have played a key role in the development of these resources. The company along with DELWP look forward to feedback from users. All tools are now available on Land Use Victoria’s website. More information on the Readiness Survey and Guidelines can be found here.
