Quickmap displays the area of a parcel in several locations, sometimes these area’s differ in size for the same parcel. This is because Quickmap gets parcel area sizes from five different sources of data. For example, the area may relate to the legal title, survey plan or sale. The list below explains the difference between each of the areas.
The parcel area is displayed in the info window when a parcel is selected using the info tool. It is also displayed on the map if the Appellation layer is visible.
This area is provided by a surveyor on a new survey lodged to support a title or amend a title.
The title areas is displayed in title preview by clicking on the title icon in the detailed property report.
This area is the legal title area, and is normally the same as the area on the plan. The area may differ from the Parcel Area, if for example, part of the title has been cancelled.
The graphical area is displayed in the info window when a parcel is selected using the info tool, and the more button is clicked.
This area is calculated by Quickmap based on the graphic, and is useful for double checking what the correct area should be. This area tends to be accurate in survey capture areas, and inaccurate outside these areas.
The sales area is displayed by selecting the sales button -> Reports->Report->OK (available in Salesview only)
This area is the total area for all titles that made up part of the sale. Normally a sale will only have one title, but rural properties often have many titles making up the sale.
The total area is displayed in the info window when a parcel is selected using the info tool.
This is the total area of the combined sub parcels. For example, some older parcels can sometimes be given a single legal description, but a road runs through the parcel which divides it into two parts / sub parcels.
