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.

CadLite is Australia’s only national dataset of cadastral and property boundaries. CadLite integrates the state and territories’ unique definitions of parcels into a nationally consistent representation of all cadastral boundaries and land parcels.


CadLite contains two themes:

  • Cadastral: A seamless national database of cadastral boundaries, excluding easements and road drainage easements.
  • Property: A national dataset that identifies 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; and (3) one cadastral parcel contains many properties.

CadLite includes an identifier that allows cross referencing between jurisdictional land titles and other geographic and land administrative data.

Access & applications

The CadLite dataset is available through our value added resellers. Our resellers also develop products and solutions using the data. Applications of this dataset include:

Efficient work planning

Infrastructure and utility service providers rely on CadLite to understand the location and layout of a land parcel to help decide how best to deploy a work team.

Informed site selection

CadLite assists organisations to select sites for services, e.g. retail or community service centres. From Census analysis to Centrelink support, health information and services to transport and regional development, CadLite helps optimise service development, promotion and delivery.

Land use changes

CadLite is useful in examining urbanisation changes. Paired with the PSMA Land Tenure dataset, CadLite can provide spatial representation of land ownership types for cadastral parcels, and show changes in land use.
