Electronic Mining Cadastre Framework for Burkina Faso

GAF has been awarded a contract to support the Ministry of Mines and Energy in Ouagadougou in establishing a new computerised mining cadastre and registry system in Burkina Faso. The overall project objective is to improve governance in the mining sector by establishing a modern, web-based system for granting and managing mineral rights. The efficient, transparent and reliable administration of such titles is considered to be a key factor in increasing growth and investment in the mining sector in Burkina Faso.   The rollout of the eMC+ cadastre solution will increase the institutional capacity and efficiency of the ministry by...

3D Cadastre Modelling in Russia

Assessment of Added Value
Russia has the intention to develop and implement a 3D cadastre. A Russian-Dutch project on 3D cadastre modelling assessed the added value of a 3D cadastre. At present, the system of state cadastre and real estate registration in the Russian Federation is based on the 2D representation of objects including land parcels, buildings and structures. However, the current approach does not cover all situations of the real 3D world. Examples of such situations impeding cadastre and rights registration are: multilevel complexes, intersections of various objects in space, underground and elevated engineering networks, etc. The project included prototype development and a...

Cadastre 2014: Nineties, Nexus and Next

Relevant Today and Tomorrow?
Cadastre 2014 is a unique phenomenon in the land administration domain. Its striking simplicity enables it to speak to policymakers, managers and technicians alike. It enjoys an almost unprecedented role in guiding global land administration discourse, and has done so for almost two decades. In countless countries its impact upon land administration design is profound. But what about the decade ahead? Will Cadastre 2014 remain relevant? Is a new Cadastre 2014 required? What might drive such a vision? What would it include? Recent issues of GIM International have tackled these questions, as did a dedicated session and accompanying publication at... (read more)

Airborne Dual-band Radar for Cadastre

Fit-for-purpose Approaches Are Possible Based on InSAR Technologies
The issues of land ownership and land use rights are high on the Global Agenda 2030. 50% of the Sustainable Development Goals are land-related. A very rough estimation for reaching these goals with traditional cadastral data acquisition approaches amounts to over 500 years of cadastral survey work. This clearly illustrates that breakthrough techniques will be necessary to meet the targets. Read on to learn more about the possible approaches based on InSAR technologies. (By Dieter Lübeck, Bradar, Brazil) A well-known approach for surveying large areas in a short space of time is airborne or space-borne remote seing. In fit-for-purpose approaches... (read more)

3D Cadastre in Victoria Australia

Converting Building Plans of Subdivision
Three-dimensional (3D) land development is common, especially in urban areas. Management of 3D land rights, restrictions and responsibilities (3D RRRs) is one of the most important challenges in current land-administration systems, most of which are equipped with cadastres able only to maintain information in a 2D spatial information environment.   Assistance in the management of 3D RRRs would come with 3D cadastre. A 3D cadastre should be capable of storing, manipulating, querying, analysing, updating and visualising 3D cadastral objects and their associated land rights, restrictions and responsibilities. 3D cadastral aspects should be considered for any modern system, and several provide...

Croatian Congress on Cadastre and Intergeo-East

Zagreb, Croatia, 7th to 9th March 2005 The third Croatian Congress on Cadastre with international participation was held at the Congress Centre of the Zagreb Fair in Zagreb, Croatia from 7th to 9th March 2005. The conference was held in conjunction with the second Intergeo-East. FIG deputy president Dr Andreas Drees addressed participants on behalf of the president, Prof. Dr Holger Magel. The congress was held at a time when the Republic of Croatia is facing fulfilment of conditions for joining the European Union. One of the tasks involved concerns reform of cadastre and land registry. Croatia is approaching this... (read more)

Multi-dimensional Cadastre: 3D and 4D

3D Data for Environmentally and Energetically Relevant Topics
In recent years, Germany's national mapping and cadastre information systems have become increasingly focused on demands for multidimensional applications, e.g. environmental protection, planning, energy supply and disaster management. The basic request of coverage and actuality was previously defined for the third dimension. In 2009, the Surveying Authorities of the States of the Federal Republic of Germany (AdV) arrived at the following decision: “The collection, data modelling and quality management of buildings for geotopographical surveying and for the cadastre are main tasks of the official German cadastre. This also includes the third dimension.” The fourth dimension (time) is now an integral component of the... (read more)
