Administrative areas

Administrative areas have boundaries that are linked to the State Government's cadastre within the spatial cadastral database (SCDB) and therefore carry the same point/line accuracy.

They include local governments, local government wards, localities/suburbs, townsites, land districts, port authorities, marine parks and reserves, infrastructure corridors, water control areas, state forests, Native Title claims, and State electoral districts and regions.

Further administrative areas are to be added, such as rail freight line corridors, marine harbours and ports, and heritage areas. Apart from applying directly to land administration, they also provide a useful tool in identifying potential 'areas of interest' for cadastral data extraction and demographic studies. The data is updated on a daily basis ensuring very reliable datasets.

Administrative areas data gives you:

  • unique ID number
  • usage code, which signifies the purpose of the polygon (eg locality)
  • postcode
  • Australian Bureau of Statistics number (assigned to local areas)
  • legal area in square metres.
