Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Replaces superseded equivalent CPPSIS4038A Prepare and present GIS data.

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

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to prepare and present a range of geographic information system (GIS) data using various media. The unit covers consulting and assessing to identify display specifications, and selecting and applying appropriate data formats and presentation media. The unit also covers gathering feedback as the basis for implementing quality improvements. It requires the ability to translate client requirements into an appropriate design and layout, and to adhere to copyright requirements and drawing standards to ensure quality of output.

The unit supports those who work in technical support positions in a surveying and spatial information services team.

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

Pre-requisite Unit

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.

Prepare for display of GIS data.

1.1.

Display specifications are determined in consultation with appropriate persons .

1.2.

Extent, content and intended use of output are assessed, and display format and medium are selected according to organisational requirements.

1.3.

Hardware, software and other equipment are set up and checked to ensure correct operation and functionality, and that compliance requirements are met.

2.

Format GIS data.

2.1.

Spatial datasets are accessed and compiled to meet display specifications.

2.2.

Data formats are transformed to meet specifications.

2.3.

Formatted data is checked to ensure compatibility and quality according to display specifications.

3.

Display GIS data.

3.1.

Spatial data is presented according to display specifications and organisational requirements.

3.2.

Feedback on display is obtained from appropriate persons using simple question and answer process.

3.3.

Feedback is analysed to identify improvements, and display is rectified according to organisational requirements.
