Abstract / Description:
A foundation spatial dataset of current property location addresses and their corresponding land parcel descriptor. This dataset does not contain any personal information.
This dataset provides an authoritative source of location address information in Queensland.
Additional Information:
To import these delimited text files into your GIS software, read the software help file to find out how to import the data. Data is supplied as a pipe delimited ASCII file with the following FIELDS: address_pid, plan_no, lot_no, lot_stat_id, addr_stat_id, standard_id, unit_type_id, unit_no, unit_suf, prop_name, street_no_1, str_no_1_suf, street_no_2, str_no_2_suf, road_name, road_type_id, road_part_id, locality_name, la_name, la_code, lat, long, Geocode feature type, Datum. Full field descriptions and codes are outlined in the metadata integrated within the dataset.

From the 30 November 2015, there will no longer be reference to Parishes and Counties in the Departments land information systems, including the Digital Cadastral Database (DCDB) – a computerised map of property boundaries and related description of all land parcels in Queensland.

The Department of Resourceswill retain a record of parishes and counties for historical purposes. The Museum of Lands, Mapping and Surveying provides historical information about parishes and counties and the historical parish directory is available online.
If you obtain information or products from QSpatial, either the information will no longer contain parish and county details, or the parish and county fields will contain the words ‘no longer used’.

Completeness (omission):

Features are complete for the scale of representation.


Lineage statement:
This dataset contains current location addresses from the Lands Address Location Framework (LALF) database. Each address is represented spatially by, as a minimum, a centroid point of latitude and longitude for the associated land parcel(s). The address data is sourced from Queensland’s Local Government Authorities and private developers. Lot on Plan information then links the addresses to the relevant land parcels in the Digital Cadastral Database (DCDB). The database was first released in June 2002 and is in continual update.
