Dataset Lineage

LGA boundaries are aligned with cadastral boundaries as shown on the relevant local government maps described in legislation. The map boundaries are reflected in the Digital Cadastral Database (DCDB) and each parcel has a local government attribute. To create this product, DCDB data is extracted then dissolved based on the local government attribute. The resulting polygons are checked for errors against the previous month’s product.
