You will find data directly from Victorian government departments and agencies. Get access to over 3000 datasets, tools and resources. data.vic.gov.au supports re-usable, accessible, understandable and shareable, Victorian government data.
The data includes predominately, but not exclusively, locational property address identifiers assigned by Local Government, considered to be the primary creator and custodian of property address. If accessible, other 'real life' property addresses created and used by the community, but not recognized by Local Government including retirement villages, assisted care facilities, industrial and public housing estates etc. are included.
It consists of polygons representing Victoria's land parcels. This layer should be used in conjuction with the other layers and aspatial tables that make up Vicmap Property Simplified see metadata for Vicmap Property and Vicmap Property Simplified.
This dataset series is a product of Vicmap Elevation. It contains topographical relief features represented by lines and points. It is a combination of a number of data sets that were a part of VicMap Digital Topographic. Datasets in the series are listed below. See their metadata entries for more detailed metadata.
It contains topographical relief features represented by lines. Data has been derived from Land Victoria's State Digital Map Base topographic data and converted from Microstation .DGN format to Arc/Info format.
These packages contain a digital version of almost 47 years of exploration data held by DPI. It enables clients to research the details of previous exploration work conducted in their area of interest from the comfort of their own office.
Inclusions are rivers, water bodies, transport (excluding roads), geographic features and most of the Vicmap Features of Interest content. These features all reside within the Vicmap Framework Products. Features are combined to create one piece of geometry based on name and type. The database replicates the Vicmap Feature of Interest model/schema Geomark contains a series of datasets. Datasets in the series are listed below.
Planning schemes cover the 79 local government areas and three other areas in Victoria. Planning schemes are regularly amended, and Vicmap Planning is continually updated to reflect the official planning scheme at any time.
This layer is part of Vicmap Transport and is and extensive digital road network - line features delineating state wide road network. Includes; Bridges, Connectors, Footbridge, Ferry Route, Foot Tracks, Roads, Highways, Roundabouts & Tunnels.
This portfolio of spatial related authoritative data products, made up from individual datasets, is developed and managed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning. The information provides the foundation to Victoria’s primary mapping and spatial information systems, and is used for building business information and systems.
Vicmap is a registered trademark of the Victorian Government and is synonymous with authoritative statewide mapping since 1975.
Vicmap Lite datasets are suited for use between scales of 1: 250,000 and 1 : 5 million. The level of attribute information, the number of features and the number of vertices has been simplified to suit the 1: 250,000 - 1 : 5 million scale range. The concept of a Scale Use Code has been introduced to help control the level of detail displayed.
ESRI SHP files store both geometry and attributes (data) for features. A single shape can have as many as five physical files with the same filename, but different file extensions.
Click Insert tabImport panelMap Import .
In the Import Location dialog box, under Files Of Type, select shp.
Select the file or folder to import. Click OK.
For formats with additional options, in the Import dialog box, click Driver Options.
In the Import Dialog Box, under Spatial Filter, specify whether to limit the area where data will be imported:
None — Place no area limits on the incoming file.
Current Display — Limit the import to the current drawing area.
Define Window — Limit the import to an area you define. To use this option, click Select. Respond to the prompts to define the area.
Specify the import settings for each input layer (see the Import dialog box for details).
Drawing Layer— Select a target layer for each layer in the incoming file.
Object Class— Assign incoming objects to an existing object class and map incoming attribute data to the data fields in the object class. The Object Classfields are available only if you have object classes defined in your map.
Input Coordinate System— Specify the coordinate system of the incoming file. If the drawing has a coordinate system assigned to it, incoming objects are converted to the coordinate system of the drawing.
Data— For each layer, specify how to import data.
Points— For each layer, specify how to treat incoming point objects.
By default, polygons are imported as polygon objects. To import them as closed polylines, select Import Polygons As Closed Polylines.
