Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Replaces superseded equivalent CPPSIS4024A Collect and set out spatial data.

This version first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Version 3.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to source spatial data from a range of media and datasets, and assess its availability and suitability for use in meeting client requirements. The unit covers researching and assessing data suppliers and information, such as metadata and attributes, to determine the most suitable sources of available data to meet job specifications. The unit also covers collecting and setting out data using a computer and software suitable for manipulating and presenting spatial data. The unit requires the ability to measure and reduce data and write technical reports.

The unit supports those who work in support positions for surveying and mapping, town planning, cartography and geographic information systems (GIS).

No licensing, legislative, regulatory, or certification requirements apply to this unit of competency at the time of endorsement.

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.

1.

Source spatial data.

1.1.

Job specifications for required spatial data are identified in consultation with appropriate persons .

1.2.

Search is undertaken of a range of media to identify sources of potential spatial data.

1.3.

1.4.

Potential sources of spatial data are listed according to job specifications and organisational requirements.

2.

Assess potential spatial data.

2.1.

Potential spatial data and datasets are assessed for suitability against job specifications.

2.2.

Availability of suitable spatial data is verified with potential suppliers, and constraints are identified according to organisational requirements.

Spatial data indexing, backup and archiving requirements are determined to ensure currency.

3.

Prepare data suitability report.

3.1.

Spatial data is collected and set out according to job specifications and organisational requirements.

3.2.

Administrative and industry requirements for data collection are complied with and recorded.

3.3.

Documentation  is completed according to organisational requirements.

Foundation Skills

This section describes the language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills essential to performance in this unit but not explicit in the performance criteria.

Skill

Range of Conditions

This section specifies work environments and conditions that may affect performance. Essential operating conditions that may be present (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) are included. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below.

Appropriate persons  must include at least one of the following:

  • client
  • colleague
  • qualified surveyor
  • supervisor or line manager
  • spatial data provider.

Metadata  must include at least four of the following:

  • availability
  • conditions of use
  • coordinate system
  • currency
  • custodian
  • data accuracy
  • data description
  • date of acquisition
  • licence
  • quality
  • source
  • spatial data acquisition methodologies
  • version control.

Documentation  must include:

  • written assessment of data availability, including cost, licensing conditions, and constraints on use
  • written assessment of suitability of available data in meeting requirements for accuracy, completeness, coverage, density, logical consistency and specifications.

Performance Evidence

A person demonstrating competency in this unit must satisfy the requirements of the elements, performance criteria, foundation skills and range of conditions of this unit. The person must also source and assess the availability and suitability of spatial data for two different projects in consultation with colleagues.

While sourcing and assessing the above spatial data, the person must:

  • clarify job specifications, including extent, content, intended use, accuracy, precision and format of spatial data
  • complete required documentation, including written assessments as specified in the range of conditions
  • communicate clearly with others to clarify and discuss work tasks
  • comply with legal and organisational requirements relating to:
  • completing records and documentation
  • copyright and ownership of spatial data
  • using and storing equipment
  • working safely
  • perform spatial data measurements, reduction and manipulation with accuracy
  • set out spatial data and related attributes, including:
  • colour
  • layer
  • level
  • line type
  • line width
  • text
  • verify availability of suitable data with suppliers, taking into account copyright and ownership constraints.

Knowledge Evidence

A person demonstrating competency in this unit must demonstrate knowledge of:
