VIC DELWP - Vicmap Hydro - Water Area 1:25,000 (Polygon)

This dataset presents the footprint of hydrological features across Victoria. The data includes Lakes, Flats (subject to inundation), Wetlands, Pondages (saltpan & sewerage), Watercourse Areas, Rapids & Waterfalls.

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 Hydro is a topologically structured digital data set depicting Victoria’s natural and man-made water resources including selected water-related structures and coastal navigational features.

Please note:

  • This dataset is limited to 15,000 features due to the feature extraction limits of the Data.Vic WFS.
  • These features are presented in a scale of 1:25,000.
  • The linework and points were derived from the Vicmap Digital Topographic (VDT) map base coordinated by LIG. VDT evolved from Victoria's printed 1:25,000 Topographic Map Series program together with the need to supply a control framework for the creation of the rural Digital Cadastral Mapbase.
