Fundamental and applied research to integrate 3D spatial information about vertically located ownership properties into the current 2D property maps.
About the project
This project aims to develop solutions for accommodating 3D data derived from regulatory urban subdivision processes into the current 2D property ownership map base.
This project expects to generate new knowledge in the area of 3D digital cadastre. Fundamental and applied research in both technical and institutional aspects will be conducted holistically to deliver technical specifications for incorporating spatial information about 3D property rights, restrictions and responsibilities (RRRs) into the map base, and policy recommendations around transforming current 2D-based work processes to support a digital information environment. Current shortcomings in the map base have significant societal and economic implications and are universally experienced, motivating investment and collaboration by the project’s industry partners. This project will address these shortcomings by developing new methodologies in enabling digital integrity and analysis of 3D RRRs and provide the requisite data architecture that the inclusion of 3D RRRs in the property map base is predicated on. This directly addresses fundamental deficits in a core land administration tool and represents a significant step towards decreasing the risks associated with using the map base for decision-making and improving social and economic outcomes for Australia.
The expected outcomes of this project will be guidelines for the delivery of a 3D property ownership map base for smart urban land administration, responding to core business objectives for many governments around the world.
