Custodian: Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning
Abstract: The dataset consists of polygons delineating areas of public land(1) and local council land(2) that have been classified as public open space. Polygon attributes describe the public open space category and owner. The datset covers 31 municipalities in metropolitan Melbourne.

The definition used to attribute a polyon as public open space is 'those areas of public land and local council land that have an accepted and ongoing community use for outdoor recreation and informal activities, and that are freely accessible to the public'.

The VEAC Metropolitan Melbourne Open Space Inventory does not include Commonwealth land; schools; cemeteries; gated facilities; road plantations; closed roads; concourses around stadia; inaccessible Trust for Nature properties; 'services and utilities' public land that does not have an ongoing recreational use; future open space (e.g. areas covered by Public Aquisition Overlays); and uncategorised public land.

1. 'Public Land' is Crown land and freehold land owned by Victorian Government Agencies.

2. 'Local Council Land' is freehold land owned by local councils.

Positional Accuracy: Input datasets have varying positional accuracies. Where possible Melbourne Open Space Inventory polygons were referenced back to the cadastre. However, not all polygon boundaries are coincident with cadastral parcels. This occurs for some polygons where one or more edges were digitised from 35cm resolution aerial imagery (January 2009 and December 2010).
Atribute Accuracy: Not Known
Logical Consistency: Topology rules were implemented using ArcGIS to ensure no overlaps or gaps. All polygons are attributed with an open space type and an owner type.
Data Source: The following source datasets were used in the compilation of The Melbourne Open Space Inventory; The Department of Sustainability and Environment's VM Crown Land parcels dataset, Victorian Government agency land datasets, the ARCUE 2002 open space database, the Victorian online planning schemes database, Parks Victoria's Metropolitan Trail Network dataset and some local council open space datasets.
