Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Replaces superseded equivalent CPPSIS4034A Maintain spatial data.

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

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to implement a full cycle of spatial data maintenance, including updating, backup, recovery and archiving. The unit covers editing, updating and integrating existing and new spatial data, and problem solving to test and validate data currency and retrieval and backup systems. The unit requires the ability to use computers and software to display and manipulate data and create metadata. It also covers recording information and completing documentation.

The unit supports those who work in support positions in a spatial information services team in areas such as field work coordination, data collection and administration.

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

Pre-requisite Unit
