It is important therefore therefore that Standards Standards users users ensure ensure that they are in possess possession ion of the latest edition, and any amendments amendments thereto. thereto. Full details of all Australian Australian Standards Standards and related publications will be found in the Standards Standards A ustralia ustralia Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazine magazine ‘The Australian Standard’, Standard’, which subscribing subscribing members members receive, receive, and which gives details of new publications, publications, new editions and amendments, amendments, and of withdrawn Standards. Standards. Suggestions Suggestions for improvements improvements t o Australian Australian S tandards, tandards, addresse addressed d to the head office of Standards Australia, are welcomed. Notification of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in an Australian Standard should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate appropriate action taken.

PREFACE This St andard andard was prepared prepared by the St andard andardss Australia Australia Committee on Geographica Geographicall Information Information Systems to supersede AS 2482—1984, Interchan Interchange ge of f eature eature coded coded digital digital mapping mapping data. The purpose purpose of this Standard Standard i s to specify specify a file structure structure and formats for the interchang interchangee of digital mapping mapping data and associa associated ted information. information. T his includes includes a code structure structure to be used for identifying identifying individual t ypes of cultural, hydrographic, hydrographic, relief and vegetation vegetation features associated associated with t he mapped mapped entities. The need for such a Standard arises for the following reasons: (a) Different Different organizat organizations ions are respons responsible ible for the generation generation or initial acquisition acquisition of the various various types types of mappi mapping ng data. data. This informa information tion is then then gener generally ally used used by other other organ organiza ization tionss for specific purposes. (b) The nature nature of the data data at its initial acqui acquisiti sition on and the form in which it is stored stored with the different organizations varies significantly depending depending on its intended use by those organizations. More frequently now, this information exists in a digitized form.  .   m   o   c  .    l   a    b   o    l   g    i   a   s  .   e   r   o    t   s   o    f   n    i    /    /   :   p    t    t    h    t   a   n   o    i   s   r   e   v    l    l   u    f   e    h    t   s   s   e   c   c    A  .   e    l   p   m   a   s   e   g   a   p    7   e   e   r    f   a   s    i   s    i    h    T

(c) It would be of significant significant econo economic mic benefit benefit i f a simple simple common common structure structure were defined defined for the interchange of the basic digitized information thus avoiding costly duplication of effort in its reacquisition. This edition is technically identical with the 1984 edition except as follows: (a) To describe more more clearly clearly the intended intended use of the Standard, Standard, Clause Clause 1 (Scope) (Scope) and the title have have been amended. (b) To reflect recent recent develop developmen ments ts relating to the Australian Australian Geodetic Geodetic System— (i)

the definition definitionss of the AGD, AHD AHD and AMG in Clauses Clauses 4.1, 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 have have been revise revised; d;


a definition definition for the World Geode Geodetic tic System System (WGS) has been included included in a new Clause Clause 4.4. 4.4. The previous Clause 4.4 (Integrated survey grid) becomes Clause 4.5, Clause 4.5 (Feature) becomes 4.6 and Clause 4.6 (Record segment) becomes 4.7;

(iii) minor minor amendmen amendments ts have been made to Clause 7.4(b); 7.4(b); (iv) extra extra option optionss have have been include included d in Table Table 8, Charac Character ter Position Position 6 to accord accord with the the revised Clause 7.4(b). (c) (c) To more more clear clearly ly iden identi tify fy the the versio ersion n of AS 2482 2482 which hich has has been been used used for for a parti particul cular ar interchange interchange volume: (i)

(ii) (ii)

(d) Append Appendice icess A, B, E and F have been deleted, deleted, becaus becausee their conten contentt is adequa adequately tely covered covered in other other publication publicationss and Appendix Appendix F has been been supersed superseded ed by the present present Tables Tables 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9. (e) The original original Appendix Appendix D has been been redesignat redesignated ed Append Appendix ix A and a new Appen Appendix dix B has been been included. Appendix B now specifies a subset of this Standard for use by organizations wishing to adopt a single procedure where the Standard offers several options.

FOREWORD This Standard is prima rily intended for use by organizations that wish to i nterchange nterchange digital mapping mapping or charting data and information. The interchange is based on individual records for each feature involved without any attempt to define structures or relationships within the data. The features are identified by an 8-digit feature header code and are generally specified by a string of coordinate coordinate values values defining defining their boundar boundary y or location and other other optional optional attri bute bute data. data. The feature header is composed of a feature code, being one of those codes listed in Appendix C of this Standard and a feature modifier. This Standard does not specify values for the feature modifier other than zeros. Other values may be used at the supplier’s discretion to permit a further breakdown of the feature code. If other values are used, a list of them and their meanings is to be supplied with the data. This Standard describes a preferred interchange medium with a simple format designed for ease of  conversion and to minimize loss in the event of a record being corrupted.  .   m   o   c  .    l   a    b   o    l   g    i   a   s  .   e   r   o    t   s   o    f   n    i    /    /   :   p    t    t    h    t   a   n   o    i   s   r   e   v    l    l   u    f   e    h    t   s   s   e   c   c    A  .   e    l   p   m   a   s   e   g   a   p    7   e   e   r    f   a   s    i   s    i    h    T
