PSMA - Land Tenure (Polygon) February 2019

This dataset presents Land Tenure for cadastral parcels within Australia. The data is from the February 2019 release of Land Tenure.

The Land Tenure dataset is based on the Australian Cadastral Boundaries in the CadLite dataset. The Land Tenure Dataset provides a hierarchical classification of tenure with four levels. The fourth level is the most specific tenure type and is the preferred level of supply. However, the data supplied by the jurisdictions may not be at this level and therefore cannot be supplied. The most appropriate tenure data will be included in the release. The National Land Tenure Classification is a dataset showing the tenure type, both freehold and non-freehold, for land parcels in Australia. This dataset has been produced by creating a spatial association between PSMA Australia's CadLite cadastral parcel and jurisdiction land tenure datasets. The translation between the jurisdiction classifications and the national classification has been made by the jurisdictions.

For more information, please refer to the Product Description.

Note: On 1 October 2020, PSMA Australia Limited began trading as Geoscape Australia.

This dataset allows users to ascertain the land tenure for the cadastral parcels in the CadLite dataset. These parcels cover the entire Australian extent.

AURIN has merged the State/Territory based shapefiles into a national dataset, and has joined attributes from complementary textual attribute tables.
