Spatial representation and information about the millions of legal land parcels across Australia.

CadLite provides spatial representation and information about legal land parcels across Australia. This dataset is a graphical index of digital cadastral boundaries.


PSMA’s CadLite dataset provides a spatial representation of millions of legal land parcels across Australia. CadLite draws on state and territory data to:

  • provide a seamless national database of cadastral boundaries, excluding easements and road drainage easements
  • identify the three relationships that exist between a property and a cadastral parcel:
    1. one cadastral parcel is equal to one property
    2. many cadastral parcels make up one property
    3. one cadastral parcel contains many properties.

CadLite’s graphical index of digital cadastral boundaries also includes an identifier for cross-referencing between jurisdictional land titles and other geographic and land administrative data.

What is this dataset used for?

CadLite is used for:

  • Efficient work planning – so infrastructure and utility service providers can understand the location and layout of a land parcel to help decide how best to deploy a work team.
  • Informed site selection – so organisations can select appropriate sites for services, such as retail or community service centres, Census analysis, Centrelink support, health information, transport and regional development.
  • Land use changes – for examining urbanisation changes, particularly when paired with the Land Tenure dataset to provide the spatial representation of land ownership types for cadastral parcels, and show changes in land use.
