Spatial Data Infrastructure Geodetic Infrastructure Objective • To understand the role of Geodesy in SDI and Land Administration Overview • Geodesy and Geodetic Datums in Australia • Geodetic requirements of SDI • Case Study: PCGIAP • Case Study: Vicmap Digital Property • Victoria‟s Geodetic Strategy Geodetic Datum • A mathematical approximation of the geoid for specific area • Comprised of: – Reference frame (defines axes, eg CIO) – Ellipsoid (mathematical representation of the Earth, eg ANS, GRS80, WGS84) – Origin (location and orientation defined by ground marks, eg AFN, Johnston Geodetic Station) Coordinate Systems • Different methods of representing the same coordinates • E.g. geographic/geodetic, Grid (UTM), Cartesian (XYZ) • Geodetic latitude, longitude and height recently adopted by Victoria as the preferred system for storing geographic data Old Geodetic Datum • AGD 66 – based on Australian National Spheroid (ANS) – origin displaced from the centre of the earth by about 200m – No geoid model used – inhomogeneous scale and orientation – replaced in some states (WA, Qld) by AGD84 – UTM coordinates known as AMG New Geodetic Datum • GDA 94 – based on GRS80 ellipsoid (civilian version of WGS84) – global best fit to geoid – geocentric – homogeneous – national datum – will be used for several decades Geodetic Requirements of SDI • Purpose of SDI to enable effective collection, management, access, delivery and utilisation of spatial data in a local, national, regional or global community • Geodesy forms the foundation of the individual data sets and is needed to relate one data set to another Geodetic Requirements of SDI ... • Transformation of Coordinates – data from many sources using a variety of geodetic datums – often transformation between datum does not model errors correctly – preferable to re-adjust – good practice to relate national datum to ITRF – E.g PCGIAP Pilot Project Geodetic Requirements of SDI ... • Connection / use of control – data collected without direct use of the geodetic infrastructure – problems with heterogeneity – E.g. Victorian Cadastral Map (Vicmap Digital Property) Case Study - PCGIAP • Committee to support the use of GIS for social, economic and environmental objectives of the 55 member countries • Regional Geodetic Network Working Group • Establishment of a regional datum and transformation parameters is a fundamental component PCGIAP ... • Lack of geodetic infrastructure in many countries – no zero order control, horizontal datum, vertical datum, geoid models, unknown tectonic movements etc. • Due to cultural differences and/or military control over mapping activities many nations do not wish to share data PCGIAP ...
