Getting Started - Order Vicmap Data
Why do I want to order data? Why not do things online, like I do now?
Ordering data, and having it on your own computer means you can:
What do I need?
What's a Map Viewer?
To see the data that you purchase you will need to install on your system either:
GIS/CAD software available
Go to: http://www.qgis.org
Or search the web using key words like map viewers, GIS and CAD
The format is the vendor-specific file format required by the a particular GIS/CAD application. We supply map data in shape, AutoCad and MapInfo formats. The map viewers above support these formats. Should you choose another map viewer check that they support one of the above mentioned formats.
About Coordinate System
The coordinate system is the particular spatial reference system used to define positions of points on the Earth's surface.
Coordinate systems are based on a datum that describes the size and shape of the earth. In Victoria, the datum will typically be GDA94 (which is identical to WGS84 used by Global Navigation Satellite Systems).
Planar coordinate systems (Cartesian systems) also incorporate a projection. This is the mathematical transformation used to map points on the curved surface of the Earth to corresponding points a plane surface (eg. on paper, computer screen).
For more information on coordinate systems, see http://www.ga.gov.au/geodesy/datums
Okay, I have my software, now how do I get data?
