Digital cadastral database (DCDB) data updates and managing parcels in X-Info Connect Stakeholder and Landholder Management connections

It’s important to review and update parcel data within Stakeholder or Landholder Management systems to ensure that you’ve got the most recent parcel updates or new parcels from subdivisions.

Q1: How regularly do you recommend completing a DCDB parcel update?

A1: Ultimately the frequency is up to you and if you’re able to get the data, how frequently it’s received. If we’re completing the DCDB update for you, we’d recommend every 6 – 12 months. If you’re providing the data to be updated, we can set up an update process and run it as frequently as every two weeks.

Q2: We don’t have the resources to complete a review and update of the current parcels in X-Info Connect, can Mipela help?

A2: Whether it be updating parcels you have identified to upload, or completing a full DCDB update where we review the current DCDB data against your assets and update, the Support Team at Mipela can assist.

Q3: I don’t have a specific buffer for parcels I’d like uploaded into X-Info Connect, can we review spatially against an asset to see what needs to be imported?

A3: Mipela’s Support team can prepare a list of properties to review spatially against your asset/s to see what’s currently in X-Info Connect and what needs to be added.

If you would like further information or assistance in completing a parcel update, please contact the Mipela Support Team at support@mipela.com.au.


X-Info Assurance suite Insights: Enhancing your Enquiry Experience

Q1: What level of detail can I expect in the responses generated by X-Info Assurance suite?

A1: X-Info Assurance suite’s automated enquiry response system goes above and beyond, delivering comprehensive responses tailored to your inquiries. The generated responses not only include all the information provided in the enquiry but also feature disclaimer details, intricate area maps submitted by the enquirer, and closeup strip maps highlighting assets and key features in the vicinity. Additionally, the system can provide specific instructions based on the asset, asset type, and activity type. As part of our commitment to excellence, we can attach supplementary documentation, such as guidelines for activities near significant trees, to the response email.

Q2: Can Mipela assist in modernising my spatial asset data?

A2: X-Info Assurance Suite clients have access to Mipela’s dedicated team of GIS experts. Whether you need custom symbology, background imagery, or assistance with merging and splitting layers, our team is here to ensure that your spatial asset data is not just up to date, but optimised for maximum utility.

Q3: What if a BYDA enquiry encounters processing issues?

A3: Occasionally, processing issues may arise, often due to temporary unavailability of remote GIS data or network connectivity issues. X-Info Assurance suite is equipped with proactive monitoring tools that continuously assess all enquiries, ensuring maximum uptime and data security. In the event of a processing hiccup, X-Info Assurance suite will persistently process pending requests until the necessary data becomes available, safeguarding your assets throughout the entire process.

Map Activities

Map Activities provides a simplified approach to viewing and updating data in X-Info Connect and X-Info WebConnect. A Map Activity displays data relevant to users visually in a map and enables you to communicate tasks and outcomes in a clear and engaging way.

Q1:  What can be done from a Map Activity?

A1:  A user can use a Map Activity to search for data within the application and display results in a map. Once a map is displaying, other functions can be used to assist users with daily work activities such as displaying spatial data and displaying different layers in a map, viewing more information about the features in a map, or accessing related data in the same or new tabs – allowing a user to complete tasks using contextual activities.

Q2: Can our own data be imported into a Map Activity?

A2: Yes! A Map Activity is made up of layers which are shown in the map display and can be turned on and off by the user. This can include Internal Data (such as geometry fields in X-Info Connect), External Data (spatial data from external sources such as WFS, WMS, Tile Services, Shape/Tab files, ESRI Rest Services, Post GIS and others) and a Geocoder (datasets like Open Street Maps that enable street address searching).

Q3: Can one or multiple layers in the Maps Activity be searched on?

A3:  Layer searches can be set up by an Administrator and can be configured to include one or many layers in the search. Users can enter text to search across single or multiple layers included in the map search. The results will display grouped by layer name with the number of matches in brackets.

If you would like further information or assistance setting up a Map Activity in your application, please contact the Mipela Support Team at support@mipela.com.au.
