Quality Alignment and Design System (QuADS)


The QuADs system is for the alignment, design and quality checking of Census Collection Districts. It uses the 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 to facilitate:

    • the design of collection boundaries;
    • management of information associated with boundaries; and
    • storing of the digital geographic information used.
