  • Upgrades include new measurement models and GNSS constellation processing
  • Geodesy was rebuilt from the ground up
  • ePlan pilot launched for land subdivisions

Land Use Victoria has made a number of recent upgrades to services, mapping, and recently launched a pilot programme that aims to simplify the process for surveyors creating ePlans for land subdivisions.

ePlan for land subdivisions

Back in late April this year, Land Use Victoria in collaboration with the surveying industry, defined an agreed single CAD format file to supplement Victorian cadastral plans and surveys lodged in SPEAR (Surveying and Planning through Electronic Applications and Referrals).

The body said it was a critical building block for the creation of ePlan.

This week, Land Use Victoria announced the commencement of the pilot programme, stating that its benefits include:

  • industry standards and consistency in CAD files that supports all cadastral plans and surveys supplied in SPEAR;
  • faster updating of Vicmap property with new plan and survey information;
  • reduced errors, anomalies, and requisitions of plans through data validations;
  • eliminate the need to draft a plan/produce drawing files; and,
  • streamlined SPEAR workflows due to data population from creating ePlans.

Upgrades to Local Analysis Centre

Also this week, Surveyor-General Victoria (SGV) Geodesy announced it had received a major upgrade.

The Victorian Local Analysis Centre was completely rebuilt.

It is one of only three local analysis centres for the Asia-Pacific Reference Frame, making contributions towards precise regional position data.

Upgrades include the latest measurement models, multiple Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) constellation processing and better cloud computing technology.

Land Use Victoria has also patterned with Position++, a professional GNSS processing and monitoring service.
