Spatial improvement

Land Services are progressively improving spatial delineation of land parcels on the PLB.

Shift vectors are now available to help align administrative layers to the state's spatially improved Digital Cadastre Data Base (DCDB).

The shift vector information provides access to:

  • shift vector data
  • information on the use of shift vectors
  • a proposed schedule for the spatial improvement process and subsequent delivery of shift vectors.

For more information on shift vectors contact Land Services.
