The Standard for lodgement of cadastral survey datasets requires you to:

  • capture all survey marks and boundary points required by the RCS 2010 (section 4.1)
  • link all captured existing survey marks and boundary points to the corresponding node in Landonline (section 5).

For new marks

Label the plan number as DP, not LT.

You cannot use LT in the Plan Ref in the Mark Details screen as it does not get updated. However, you can use LT in the Survey Header for referenced plans and in the Traverse/Observation screen for adopted observations (these fields are updated automatically when the plan deposits).

For adopted marks

If an adopted mark has an existing unique identifier, you need to include this on the new survey. (Using a new unique identifier will create conflict in the Validation Report.)

Example: Peg 1 DP 12345 should be captured as Peg 1 DP 12345, or better still, adopted spatially in order to retain the unique identifier.

Use standard abbreviations in the Mark Type field.

Example: You can capture an unmarked point as Mark Type Abbrev ‘UNMK’; a Mark Type of ‘Unmarked’ in full is also acceptable (If you enter either of these into the Mark Type abbrev field it will default to 'Unmarked'.)

  1. Complete the Mark Type Abbreviation field as well as the Mark Type field.
  2. Label non-boundary marks with the correct mark name and number.

Adopted marks should have a ‘Condition’ of ‘Reliably Placed/Found’. The ideal is that you adopt and work from reliably placed/found marks.

Marks with the ‘Condition’ of 'Not Found' means that the surveyor went out into the field to look for that mark but could not find it.
