VIC MWC - Flood Mapping - Building Footprints (Polygon) Feb 2019

This dataset presents the footprint of building roof areas throughout Melbourne Water's drainage and waterways area of responsibility. The layer was created using LIDAR data, and includes commercial, residential and industrial buildings but as a rule does not include garages, sheds and other minor buildings or structures. The data contains floor levels based on the Australian Height Datum (AHD) with the height of the building estimated using LIDAR information and the shape/location of the polygon derived from 4 band colour spectrum (orthophoto) data. This layer is intended to be used to identify which buildings may be impacted by flooding.

Please note:

  • Figures -99, -999, or -9999 represent unknown or undocumented values.
