Data Download

The ACT Government is committed to open government and open data. The release of government data creates opportunities for innovative use and reuse of data, and allows the commercial, research and community sectors to add value. Releasing government data also assists government in making evidence-based policy and service delivery decisions, and supports increased citizen participation in government.

ACT Government utilises the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CCBY v4.0) licences for selected data. Data from ACTmapi and associated websites must be acknowledged whenever it is used (but not in any way that suggests that ACT Government endorses you or your use of the data). Attribution is important, as it acknowledges your use of ACT Government Data and allows others to find and use the Data from its original authoritative source if they wish. By using the Data, you agree to accept the Terms of Use and ACT Government Attribution Guidelines. If you do not accept these, you should stop using the Data immediately. To accommodate for the variety of uses of ACT geospatial data the ACTmapi team has put together a number of ways to access the data which is updated nightly:

1. Small Extracts: Through the ACTmapi data download map map you will be able to download geospatial data over specific areas. This tool will allow you to pick an area by zooming into the map or drawing a polygon on the map and then choosing the datasets and format (shapefile (.shp), file geodatabase (.gdb), AutoCAD (.dwg, .dxf) and microstation (.dgn) you would like. Repetition will be needed if the datasets you are after are in more than one category. A full list of datasets and the categories they are grouped within are available here.

2. Search and Web Service: Through the ACT Government Geospatial Data Catalogue you will be able to search by name or key words and then either download the dataset (Spreadsheet, KML or Shapefile) or utilise the webservice (GeoJSON or GeoService). Repetition will be needed per dataset.

3. (Coming Soon) Complete Land Administration Databases: Download the complete land administration database, or by division in a CAD format below. This service will be offered through a number of projections (MGA94 zone 55, ACT Grid or GDA94 lat/long).

Land Administration Download

The Office of Surveyor General and Land Information have been offering a paid service to industry to acquire up to date ACT land administration data. This service will continue under the new ACT Government terms and conditions, and accessible below. However there will be no notification of change so you will have to download the files you need at the time you need it, to ensure its currency.
