What is the DCM Update?

The Digital Cadastre Modernisation (DCM) update project is a comprehensive, $45 million initiative undertaken by the Victorian Government to modernize the land administration system in Victoria, Australia.

The project aims to digitize land titles, property boundaries, and cadastral data using advanced mapping and surveying technologies, resulting in a more efficient and streamlined system.

What are the implications for asset management?

The DCM Update will bring significant changes to spatial asset management. Existing assets will need to be shifted to align with the new cadastral database, and new assets will need to be registered with the updated DCM. Failure to comply with the DCM Update could result in inaccurate data, which can have serious implications for asset management, planning, and decision-making.

When is the DCM Update happening?

The DCM update will roll out in stages from June 2023 to March 2024, covering different cadastral areas across Victoria. Check the VGMap website for specific dates in your area.

Improved Efficiency with Automated Processes and Routines

Our team at Open Spatial has developed automated processes and routines to help clients navigate the realignment of the Cadastre. This improves efficiency and data accuracy by performing the processing and developed routines directly on the spatial tables. Our approach avoids the need for data import and export, resulting in a more efficient and accurate experience for our clients.

We understand that the Digital Cadastre Modernisation Update can be a complex and time-consuming process. That’s why our team is dedicated to providing solutions that streamline this process, so our clients can focus on what they do best – managing their assets and serving their customers.
