The LPI (NSW) is implementing a new system of lodgement of digital land title plans in NSW known as E-Plan. The E-Plan program will utilise LandXML files for the electronic submission, processing and registration of land title or survey plans. This will be the first system of plan lodgement Australia wide to use electronic examination from submission through to registration. LandXML was created in 2000 by surveyors and engineers for surveyors and engineers and has been tailored to suit the E-Plan process. LandXML is seen as the new emerging format for the transfer of digital data files between different software environments.
The objectives of this dissertation are to identify LandXML files and their origin, to investigate the E-Plan process and to identify the main stakeholders involved in E-Plan. A SWOT analysis will be used to compare the current systems of survey plan lodgement against the new E-Plan process. By doing a pre and post E-Plan analysis it can be shown how the current weaknesses may become strengths and how the current threats to the LPI may be turned into opportunities. The comparison of the two SWOT analyses will also highlight future weaknesses and threats to the LPI upon implementing E-Plan.
The main problem with the current systems of land title plan lodgement from submission through to registration is the manual and multiple handling of the survey plans. Currently plans are submitted in hard or paper copy and are a non-intelligent format so that the survey plan examiners cannot easily enquire information on the plan without having to recreate the plan in the digital environment. E-Plan uses LandXML digital data file format that allows the electronic examination through the use of automated rules engines possible thus reducing the need for multiple and manual handling of plans and reducing the cost and timeframe for the registration of survey plans.
E-Plan will provide a faster and less costly registration process for surveyors through the use of LandXML files. Through using the pre-validation tool available online surveyors can validate their LandXML prior to submission of the land title plan which will reduce requisition rates thus utilising the resources of the LPI more efficiently
