The Department of Natural Resources and Mines and the Department of Energy and Water Supply have been combined to create the new Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.

We will continue to update this website while we work on our new website.

Cadastre QLD Transformation

We are undertaking a multi-year program to transform Queensland’s land, property and addressing information systems.

Cadastre QLD Transformation aims to deliver a secure collaborative digital environment — where  users can easily access, improve and share accurate land, property and addressing information .

Current focus

Following an extensive review of our current systems, our project team will work with KPMG to engage stakeholders in government, the spatial and surveying industries, and other key users to capture requirements on the future cadastral environment for Queensland.

The outcomes will then be shaped into a business case, which will support a request for multi-year funding.

Our future environment

The future digital environment will enable users to:

  • access highly accurate land, property and addressing information that’s connected to the correct coordinate framework
  • take existing data, update it and reload it for other users
  • view land and property features in 3D to obtain a more compelling representation of rights, restrictions and responsibilities
  • increase productivity by automating workflows and removing unnecessary processes.

Ultimately, users will be able to access, improve and share enriched data with other users to gradually grow the dataset over time, providing significant economic benefits for Queensland.

Cadastral transformation

A key part that requires transformation is the 'cadastre', which includes land boundaries, details of ownership, valuations, and supporting legislation.

One component is the digital cadastral dataset, which defines and records the location and extent of land parcels and is most often used to depict the rights, restrictions and responsibilities over land and water. The current dataset for Queensland can only display information in 2D format. We need to transform this to a 3D view in the new digital environment to better meet the needs of users that work in 3D (see below).

Online lodgement of survey information

We are working with a representative group of surveyors to understand the requirements of a future eSurvey system that will enable the electronic exchange of survey information and take into consideration all plan types, 3D requirements, dynamic datum and location information.
