The content of this Special Issue has its origin at the “5th International FIG Workshop on 3DCadastres”, organized in Athens, Greece, 18–20 October 2016. The Workshop provided a further stepping stone to identifying key issues and challenges within 3D Cadastres developments, as well as exchanging ideas and solutions between scientists from academia, industry, and government. After the workshop, authors of selected papers (or in some cases, two teams of authors of related papers) were invited to publish in this Special Issue, which is devoted to the legal, organizational, and technical aspects of 3D Cadastres. Therefore, this Special Issue is where practice and research meet, influence, stimulate, and support each other, showing the progress in the key areas of 3D Cadastres, including the legal framework of 3D Cadastres, initial registration of 3D parcels, 3D data management, visualization, distribution, and delivery of 3D parcels. The 13 papers published in this Special Issue are the end result of the authors’ hard work and a rigorous journal’s peer review process. We would like to thank the authors for their valuable contributions and of course express thanks to the IJGI Editorial Office and the reviewers for their thoughtful suggestions and constructive criticism. Even though all papers in this Special Issue stand on their own, depending on cultural, geographical, and technical differences, we have tried to produce a rather holistic approach, covering this field of research. Moreover, we have highlighted similarities and dissimilarities in addressing important 3D Cadastral topics, as follows.
