Current SPEAR watermarks on the plan
Signatures on the plan
SPEAR will be changing its method of watermarking
documents by:
• applying signing text onto the plan directly
(instead of in the margins)
• watermarking the ‘Council Certification and Endorsement’
section of the plan of subdivision with council’s decision
(instead of producing a separate form)

Signatures on the plan
The new templates aim to standardise what is required
across dealing types, reducing the number of templates that
Land Victoria maintains from 23 to 6
New templates will be designed to suit:
• Plans for Certification
• Plans of Survey, Crown Allotment and Boundary Plans
• RE’s and TP’s
• Abstract of Field Records
Signatures on the plan – Implementation
Land Victoria:
• Create new template files in DWG, LCD, DGN and DXF
formats (to be available from the SPEAR website)
• Prepare a set of detailed document examples to illustrate
how these templates should be applied across the various
dealing types
• Planned for SPEAR Release 4.1 in April 2015
Owners Corporation Schedules
in digital form
• Surveyors are now able to load the Owners Corporation
schedules into SPEAR in an Excel spreadsheet as an
optional action
• This will enable the information to be ‘cut-and-pasted’
into VOTS
• Currently, the information still has to be provided on
the Subdivision Plan, as per normal practice
• We are planning in the future to require the
spreadsheet and have SPEAR ‘attach’ it to the Plan,
as necessary
LASSI - SPEAR

ePlan
Electronic Plans of Subdivision
Victorian Implementation of ePlan
Implementation progress
Stage 2
– In production since May 2013
– ePlan as the Plan of Subdivision or Plan of
Consolidation
– Plan PDF derived from the ePlan
(via Visualisation)
– Further development of the validation, visualisation
and data delivery services
What can be lodged using ePlan?
• Most Subdivision Act application types currently supported
by SPEAR can be lodged as ePlans
– Section 22, 23, 24A, 32, 32a, 35, 35(8) (See SPEAR User Guide 1)
– Must be connected to MGA94 bearing datum - this also applies to
non-survey and partial survey plans
– Boundaries can be defined by buildings (footprint only)
• Except for Boundary Plans and Section 37 Staged Plans
– The visualiser does not support the staged plans yet
– Expect to support these in later 2015 and, perhaps,
also TLA and Crown applications
• 3D building plans are not yet supported
Implementation progress
• 5 surveying firms have submitted ePlans to SPEAR
– Geometri, Absolute Surveying, Walpole Surveying,
Berry & Whyte Surveyors and Digital Land Surveys
• 21 ePlan submissions since May 2013
– 3 have been registered
• 11 test ePlans from pilot organisations in 2012
• 6 formal hands-on training sessions conducted for
LISCAD users
• 1 formal hands-on training session conducted for
GeoCivil/ePSALON users

ePlan data import in software packages
• Use case 1: Import XML file downloaded from
LASSI-SPEAR as base file
– To pre-populate the existing data and to save the surveyor’s time
in entering known information available in Vicmap
• Use case 2: Import XML file downloaded from
LASSI-SPEAR as metadata
– To pre-populate the metadata for datum, administrative areas,
location addresses and PMs/PCMs after the diagram is drawn
• Use case 3: Import existing ePlans
– To review/modify existing surveys for undertaking a new survey

Benefits and Costs
ePlan benefits for Land Victoria and others
• Improved digital data examination
– Labour-intensive nature of paper-based or PDF plan examination
– Reduces lodgement errors due to missing or incorrect information
• Efficient update process for cadastral databases
– Automatic and simultaneous update of the internal databases, e.g.
cadastre, property, title and survey mark databases, etc
– Spatially-accurate cadastral database benefits many other users
• Standard data exchange format
– Sharing and collaboration
– Nationally and internationally recognised
• Data re-use
– Decreases errors and saves time because data does not need
to be re-entered
ePlan benefits for surveyors
• Enhances the quality of subdivision plan data
• Provides access to / reuse of digital data for previous
surveys through ePlan import functionality in surveying
software packages
• Saves time for constructing the surveys through prepopulating administrative data from Vicmap and SMES
(e.g. admin boundaries, survey marks, location addresses,
road abuttals, etc.)
• Reduces lodgement errors due to missing or incorrect
information
• Reduces number of requisitions
ePlan benefits for surveyors
• Assists with improved plan processing resulting in
reduction in examination and registration times
• Allows for transfer and reuse of standardised digital
data between surveying software packages and
between organisations and units
• Assists with compilation of spatially-accurate map base
for Victoria
Now that we have actual users, Land Victoria is reviewing
the original detailed business case for ePlan to update the
costs and benefits
ePlan benefits – a practitioner’s view
• A case study on Geometri Pty Ltd is underway to
validate the ePlan benefits
• Some benefits reported by the surveyor:
– Less scope for numerical errors in the final Plan of Subdivision given
that drafting/editing in a CAD package is avoided
– No need to maintain plan templates for the various sections of the
Subdivision Act, such as section 22, section 35, etc
– Appended pages to the subdivision plans, such as for OC’s schedules
or building envelopes, are quickly generated by SPEAR
– Field Notes are drafted more quickly with greater confidence that
they are complete
– Time savings on requisitions given that the ePlan XML file is
validated for structure and content prior to lodgement
Costs for ePlan
• Implementation costs to surveying firms
– Setup of new and/or amendment to existing work practices to
cater for ePlan
– Need for updated software
– Running the current drafting process and the ePlan process
in parallel for some time
– Training of surveyors and draughtsmen
• Cost to Land Victoria
– Updates to SPEAR, VOTS and other existing software to cater
for ePlan
– ePlan validation and visualisation
– LASSI – SPEAR functionality
– Creation of new work processes and supporting software,
e.g. computer-assisted examination
Surveyors engagement program for 2014
• Contacting and visiting the surveyors already involved in
the two Pilot Programs
• Finding and training new surveyors interested in ePlan
creation and submission
– LISCAD surveyors
– GeoCivil surveyors
• Running an incentive program – “Let us help you …”
ePlan focus areas in 2014
• Visualisation (quality improvement)
• Extension of ePlans
– Stage plans, boundary plans, TLA Plans, Crown plans,
re-establishment plans, supplementary abstracts (eSAFRs)
• Complete Abstract of Field Records in ePlan
– Inclusion of occupation, features, offsets
• Auto-generation of Surveyor’s Report
– Can it be generated from ePlan if all data are captured in it?
• 3D building format plans
– What are Land Victoria’s requirements for a 3D ePlan?
– Validation and visualisation issues
ePlan roll-out strategy
Land Victoria is exploring mechanisms to encourage the take-up of
ePlan. Possible options include:
• Changing SPEAR so that ePlans auto-populate the SPEAR
application wizard
• Lodging ePlan applications with Land Victoria to be cheaper than
lodging PDF applications (via 2015 RIS)
• The examination process for ePlan applications to be quicker
• The automated process for updating the map base to be quicker
• At a national level, the ePlan Working group is looking at the
options to make submission of digital lodgements compulsory
country-wide in the medium term (starting with Queensland,
NSW and Victoria)
