What is the difference between Cadastre and Property?
The cadastre is a register of property titles, which is usually managed by government agencies. In Australia, this is usually the Land Titles Office for each state. Cadastre represents parcels which are essentially the smallest area of land capable of sale without further approval to subdivide.A property is an area of land recognised by Local Government (or equivalent agency in the ACT) as a singularly valued/rateable entity. It may comprise one or more cadastral parcels.

How often is the Boundary data updated?
Nearmap use a national data aggregator, who sources boundary data from each state’s official land registry agency. An updated data set is provided to Nearmap every quarter by the aggregator, and this data is uploaded to MapBrowser.Some customers, such as local government tend to rely on their own data sets as they are often the most up to date for newer subdivisions and developments.
