Geoscape is making changes to the G-NAF and Administrative Boundaries products and as a result, these changes will impact PSMA Cloud services.

Locality identifiers (Affects PSMA:AdminBoundariesDatasets function)
  • The current Locality identifier (`locality.locality_pid`) will change from its current format (eg. NSW234, VIC567) to new identifiers. The new identifiers will be prefixed with "loc" and be 15 chars in length. (eg. loc2e585050d240, loc3adebdfd139a)
  • We can provide you with a mapping table that links the old and new identifiers. Please email Geoscape Support if you need this.

    LGA identifiers (Affects PSMA:AdminBoundariesDatasets function)
  • The current LGA identifier (`lga.lga_pid`) will change from its current format (eg. NSW345, VIC456) to new identifiers. The new identifiers will be prefixed with "lga" and be 15 chars in length. (eg. lga8d5aff85539a, lga5404a569c6ec).
  • We can provide you with a mapping table that links the old and new identifiers. Please email Geoscape Support if you need this.

    New ABS ASGS 2021 (Affects address functions (eg. PSMA:GNAF_verifyUnparsedAddress and PSMA:GNAF_Live_verifyUnparsedAddress) and PSMA:AdminBoundariesDatasets function)
  • The new Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) boundaries will be updated to Census year 2021.
  • Address mesh block (`mesh_block`) values will return the 2021 values.
  • `mb_2016` features will be added to the PSMA:AdminBoundariesDatasets function. The 2011 and 2016 boundary values will stay and won't be removed.


    These changes will take place from Wednesday 8 September 2021.
    There will be no outage associated with this activity.
