    At the end the two most recent 4-year terms (2010-2014 and 2014-2018) of the joint commission 3 and commission 7 FIG Working Group on 3D Cadastres, it was decided to collect the best known practices in a single FIG publication. Key authors were invited to lead a chapter on one of the following topics:
    - Chapter 1 Legal foundations (Dimitrios Kitsakis),
    - Chapter 2 Initial Registration of 3D Parcels (Efi Dimopoulou),
    - Chapter 3 3D Cadastral Information Modelling (Peter van Oosterom),
    - Chapter 4 3D Spatial DBMS for 3D Cadastres (Karel Janečka), and
    - Chapter 5 Visualization and New Opportunities (Jacynthe Pouliot).
    The mentioned lead authors have each teamed-up with a group of authors to produce their chapters. A lot of inspiration was found in the earlier 3D Cadastres activities of FIG, such as the various 3D Cadastres workshops, the two 3D Cadastres questionnaires, and the presentations and publications at the 3D Cadastres sessions at every FIG Working Week and Congress. The results is a quite extensive FIG publication of about 250 pages, which has been language checked by native English speakers. The publication is further completed with a foreword by the current FIG president Chryssy Potsiou, and introduction by the editor Peter van Oosterom and other front and back materials.
    Based on this long version also a shorter version is produced (about 80 pages). The short version will become available as FIG publication both in hard-copy (paper) and soft-copy (pdf online). The long version will only be published in soft-copy form and in the style of the FIG proceedings.
    Both versions are (expected to be) available at the FIG congress 2018 in Istanbul, Turkey. Every chapter will be shortly introduced by one of the authors at the FIG congress 2018.
