ACTLIC (W3)"ACTLIC" steht für "Australian Capital Territory Land Information Centre"
Land information - or spatial information - comes in many forms, but is essentially information about our physical environment. It can include information about land parcels, roads, buildings, soils, vegetation, topography (slope, form, or the "lie" of the land), or even street addresses. Any information about things in the physical world with a spatial component (that is, can be geographically "placed" in, on, or around the Earth's surface) is essentially land information. It can include elements from both the natural world and the built environment.
Land Information can be digital data on a computer system, or it can be an image from an aerial photograph. It can be a satellite image, a map of Australia, or maybe a plan showing your house on your block of land.
The ACT Land Information Centre (ACTLIC), produces, updates and maintains many types of land information, from the smallest detail of a kerb and gutter in an engineering survey drawing, to the extent of the ACT border.
ACTLIC is responsible for many kinds of land information in the ACT, as well as the Territory's primary land information system, the Spatial Data Management System (SDMS). SDMS is a set of digital databases covering the ACT, comprising many layers of spatial data. The fundamental base layer of SDMS is the land parcel or cadastral layer, which is recognised to be the most comprehensive and accurate cadastral database in Australasia.
Other types of land information for which ACTLIC is responsible include Survey Geodetic Control, Survey Marks, Addresses and Place Names.
