Postcode boundaries, polygon - 1:250,000 to 1 :5 million. Vicmap Lite

This layer is part of Vicmap Lite and contains polygon features delineating postcode areas. Vicmap Lite datasets are suited for use between scales of 1: 250,000 and 1 : 5 million. The polygons were sourced from Vicmap Admin. The level of attribute information and the number of vertices has been simplified to suit the 1: 250,000 - 1 : 5 million scale range. The concept of a Scale Use Code has been introduced to help control the level of detail displayed.

Geospatial Accuracy Not Known The source line work was generalised using an enhanced Douglas and Peucker simplification algorithm. The algorithm keeps so-called critical points that depict the essential shape of a line and removes all other points. The algorithm connects the end nodes of an arc with a "trend line". The distance of each vertex to the trend line is measured perpendicularly. Vertices closer to the line than the tolerance are eliminated. A 80m tolerance was used on this dataset
