Best Practices 3D Cadastres - Extended version

    Research output: Book/ReportBook editingScientificpeer-review


    This publication is the result from the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) joint commission 3 ‘Spatial Information Management’ and commission 7 ‘Cadastre and Land Management’ Working Group on 3D Cadastres. The increasing complexity of infrastructures and densely built-up areas requires a proper registration of the legal status (private and public), which only can be provided to a limited extent by the existing 2D cadastral registrations. Within the FIG Working Group the concept of 3D Cadastres with 3D parcels is intended in the broadest possible sense: 3D parcels include land and water spaces, both above and below surface. The level of sophistication of a 3D Cadastre in a specific country will in the end be based on the user needs, land market requirements, legal framework, and technical possibilities. This FIG publication
    collects the best known practices related to 3D Cadastres in a single book organized in five coherent chapters:
    Chapter 1. Legal foundations
    Chapter 2. Initial Registration of 3D Parcels
    Chapter 3. 3D Cadastral Information Modelling
    Chapter 4. 3D Spatial DBMS for 3D Cadastres
    Chapter 5. Visualization and New Opportunities
    The FIG publication ‘3D Cadastres Best Practices’ provides a clear and comprehensive overview to both the newcomers and experts in the 3D Cadastres community.
