Geospatial Corporate Data Model

The Geospatial corporate data model contains a brief data and dictionary definition for each geospatial dataset:

Geospatial data contributes to the maintenance of Registers, by assisting with visualising and searching applications, determinations and agreements which are on the Registers.
Spatial records are held for ‘active’ application/agreement. Once an application/agreement becomes non-active (i.e. dismissed or withdrawn) the record is removed.
