ICSM ePlan Working Group

The Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping (ICSM) is made up of senior representatives from New Zealand and Australian (Commonwealth, state and territory) government surveying and mapping agencies. ICSM's role is to provide leadership, coordination and standards for surveying, mapping and national framework datasets. ICSM manages most of its work through various working groups.

In 2003, the ePlan Working Group was formed by ICSM to develop a national digital cadastral data transfer standard. The members of this Working Group are from the New Zealand, Singapore and Australian governments. Currently, Victoria, New South Wales, New Zealand and Singapore are fully supporting the ePlan Initiative and have been working towards implementing the ePlan Protocol.
