WARD Boundaries 2012 (Polygon) - Vicmap Admin

Part of the Vicmap Admin dataset series. This dataset contains WARD Boundaries (WARDS) for all LGA's within Victoria. WARDS are defined by Local Government Victoria, within the Department of Transport Planning & Local Infrastructure (DTPLI) and maintained by the Victorian Electoral Comission.

NOTE: This dataset was superceded by WARD_2016 in October 2016, and was withdrawn in February 2017 from the Vicmap Admin product.

Data Temporal Coverage: 2012-07-01 to 2016-10-01
Geospatial Coverage 141,-39,150,-34
Geospatial Scale varies Metro Melbourne at 1:480 and 1:500, Rural Vic. at mainly 1:2,500 see VicMap Digital Property
Geospatial Accuracy Approx. 99%. The methodology used in the establishment of the WARDS was primarily a self-checking process. Further QA was done via a cycle of maps produced for shires. Maintenance of the WARD data set has been done at the Victorian Electoral Commission. Varies as per scale of capture of VicMap Property. Vicmap Property is classified as 'BB' accuracy, ie. 90% of well-defined features are within 1mm, at plot scale, of their true position, eg. 1:500 equates to +/- 0.5metre and 1:25,000 equates to +/- 25 metres. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the spatial accuracy of the major part of the data set, at all scales is frequently better than BB. Within the metropolitan area, 'Melbourne Water' requires subdivisions exceeding nine lots to be submitted in digital form. When input into the base, every effort is made to use this 'survey accurate' data to extend the accuracy of the immediately surrounding detail. No 'shift' of data as a means of 'cartographic enhancement' to facilitate presentation has been employed for any real world feature.
