Census Map Production System (CMPS)


The CMPS has, as its basis, a digital base map of topographical data supplied by PSMA Australia Ltd. This base map is overlaid by digital collection management area boundaries which can be manipulated to reflect any required changes. Various data are attributed to those boundaries through an Oracle database called the Collection District Record Database (CDRD).


The system was built and used for the production of Census collection management area maps which integrated the collection boundaries and the base map data.
