VIC DELWP - Vicmap Elevation - Metro Contours (1-5 metre) (Lines)

This dataset presents the footprint of relief features represented by lines at 1-metre intervals and some areas at 5-metre intervals. Data has been derived from Melbourne Water base maps and converted to Microstation .DGN format.

Vicmap is the foundation that underlies most spatial information in Victoria. This portfolio of spatial related authoritative data products, made up from individual datasets, is developed and managed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (DELWP). Vicmap Elevation is a statewide dataset series containing topographical relief features represented by lines and points throughout Victoria.

Please note:

  • This dataset is limited to 15,000 features due to the feature extraction limits of the Data.Vic WFS.
  • Data is incomplete i.e. there are "holes" in the data where for example there are quarries, or large building sites.
  • Positional and attribute accuracy varies with scale of capture and the contour interval. eg, 1m contours from aerial photos +/- 0.5m 0.2 m contours from survey +/- 0.1m.
