SCIMS contains coordinates and related information for survey marks established under the direction of the Surveyor General and is maintained for the purposes of cadastral boundary definition, engineering surveys, mapping and a variety of other spatial applications.
The datum used for the horizontal position of survey marks is the Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94) at ICSM website. Coordinates are provided as easting and northing values on the Map Grid of Australia (MGA) projection or as latitude and longitude (geographic).
Where available, heights of survey marks relate to the Australian Height Datum 1971 (AHD71).
Accuracy statements(class and order) are assigned to each position and height. Other related information includes details of mark types, eccentric / witness marks and trigs tations.
Results of all searches may be viewed on screen, printed or downloaded in a number of common file formats.
