Localities in Victoria (VMADMIN.LOCALITY_POLYGON) - Comprehensive Elements
This dataset is the definitive set of locality boundaries for the state of Victoria as defined by Local Government and registered by the Registrar of Geographic Names. The boundaries are aligned to Vicmap Property. This dataset is part of the Vicmap Admin dataset series.
Local Government defines suburb, town and rural district boundaries after seeking appropriate consultation with all interested parties. Proposed boundaries/names are submitted to the Registrar of Geographic Names for approval and formal gazettal. As boundary and name information changes are processed through the formal definition and gazettal process at the Registrar of Geographic Names, the amendments will be flagged and the dataset will be updated by the maintainer with all new boundaries aligned to Vicmap Property.
Purpose: The Vicmap Admin product, which includes this dataset, provides an accurate representation of various administrative boundaries across Victoria, at a capture scale of 1:25,000. It is used in a variety of applications, particularly in emergency services, natural resource management, planning and development, and digital map publications.
