Cadastre 2034 Powering Land & Real Property

    Purpose of this
    Document
    Cadastre 2034: Powering Land and Real Property
    has been prepared by the Permanent Committee on
    Cadastre; a subcommittee of the Intergovernmental
    Committee on Surveying and Mapping.
    This document’s purpose is consultative. It represents the first phase in
    seeking broader community input and support for Cadastre 2034.
    The strategy captures the trends and articulates the vision of what we
    believe the community will require of our cadastral system by 2034. It
    identifies where current information falls short of consumer expectations
    today, and considers the user scenarios that will trigger changing needs in
    the future.
    This strategy will assist ANZLIC in the definition of the future state of the
    Land Parcel and Property theme in the ANZ Foundation Spatial Data
    Framework.
    Cadastre 2034 has been developed with input from a New Zealand
    perspective and Trans-Tasman collaboration remains an important feature
    of this strategy.
    ICSM can not deliver Cadastre 2034 alone. It will require the collective
    thinking of government, industry, academia and the broader community
    if we are to create a compelling picture of a desirable future state of our
    cadastral system. Your input is essential to working towards and realising
    our shared aspirations.
    ●   Do you agree with our view?
    ●   Do you support the enduring principles we espouse?
    ●   Are we moving in the right direction?
    ●   Do our goals and objectives reflect your own aspirations?
    ●   What can you contribute?
    ●   Do we have your support?
    Information on how you can participate is available on the inside cover of
    this document. Your feedback will inform the final strategy. I look forward
    to your involvement.

Cadastre 2034
Powering Land and Real Property
What is the cadastral system?
The cadastral system defines and records the location and extent of property
rights, restrictions and responsibilities. It includes a geometric description
of land and real property boundaries linked to other records describing the
nature of the interests, the ownership or control of those interests, and often
the value of the parcel and its improvements [1, 2].

Why is the cadastral system important?
The cadastral systems of Australia underpin stable and reliable registration
of land based property rights. The cadastral system traditionally serves as
the foundation for effective land tenure transactions and in securing the
legal status of property boundaries. Cadastral systems play a significant and
ongoing role contributing towards the economic and social prosperity we           The modern cadastre

The cadastral system of the future will be a highly influential part of
tomorrow’s lifestyle decision support systems, powering land and real
property management, development and investment; where property and
all other interests on land are managed in an integrated manner.
The challenge facing cadastral stewardship is to manage the convergence
of consumer expectations for integrated social, economic and land related
systems, and opportunities for growth; with the disruption that comes
with the phasing out of one technology and the start of another, as well as
industry reaction arising from doing things differently.
The final version of Cadastre 2034 will guide the evolution of jurisdictional
systems and ensure a coordinated and consistent approach to future
policies, legislation, standards, models and research; and provide clear
direction for the sector as a whole.
The value of Cadastre 2034 is that it establishes a single point philosophy on
what the community can expect and what the government has to deliver in
the future.
Each jurisdiction will then be able to take this high level strategy and work
towards achieving the identified goals from their own unique starting points.
This includes New Zealand, which shares the same vision and expectations
but has a different physical and administrative environment [3].

                         economic structures - playing a significant role in traditional land tenure,

                         stipulate how we develop, use and occupy land. The following will impact
                         on the way we respond as an industry.

                         These vertical living lifestyles will create complex property scenarios that
                         the future cadastral system will need to contend with. New legislation
                         will be required to enable the increasing complexity of land and property

                         accuracy, like the automated vehicle guidance systems used in agriculture
                         and mining today. They will also need to be integrated with real property
                         data for individualised navigation.

                                                recognise that land (and/or real property) is the basis for human activity;

Figure 1: The cadastral system

Our Goals
This strategy takes an all encompassing view of how we design, organise,
access, operate and leverage the cadastral system of the future; doing so in a
way that considers not only the impact on the environment today, but also how
we develop, use and preserve cadastral information resources for the future.
Cadastre 2034 has five goals. Their purpose is to achieve a cadastre that:
●	is   fundamental to land and property ownership and is sustainably managed;
●	is   multipurpose, truly accessible, easily visualised, and readily understood
      and used;
●	is   fully integrated with broader legal and social interests on land;
●	provides   a digital representation of the real world that is survey accurate,
      3- dimensional and dynamic1; and
●     is a federated cadastre based on common standards.
The overarching objectives, and strategic actions and innovations required
to achieve these gaols are detailed in the Strategic Framework and following
sections.

Cadastre 2034 Powering Land & Real Property

                            Case for Change
                            Australian States and Territories and New Zealand are
                            recognised as having world class cadastral systems –
                            so why change anything?
                            ●	Firstly, we recognise that the environment in which we operate will
                                 change, and therefore it is important that our cadastral system evolves
                                 in a way that ensures the principles underpinning a transparent,
                                 accessible, efficient and secure system, are economically sustainable.
                            ●	Secondly,    there are political, economic and social imperatives
                                 that require a united response. It is time for jurisdictions to accelerate
                                 their collective efforts in the national interest, in order to meet global
                                 challenges, in addition to national and local issues.
                            ●   	Thirdly, community expectations will evolve and therefore, the
                                  cadastral system must also transform if it is to maintain relevance with
                                  prevailing societal needs.

                            Economic Sustainability
                            The cadastre, in combination with the land registration system, is a
                            powerful economic lever. It assembles, manages and shares information

                            The cadastral survey and land registration systems allow people, businesses
                            and governments to leverage and manage this huge national asset base of
                            $4.7 trillion.
                            The better the information landowners, investors and land managers have,
                            the better use they can make of this fundamental asset to develop new
                            products and services from land. If our annual return on investment (ROI)
                            could be improved by a relatively modest 0.1 percent, the improved ROI
                            on $4.7 trillion amounts to $4.7 billion per annum. This is a 0.1 percent
                            increase in land value (above normal growth): in the short term through

                            can also reduce financing risk on mortgage lending with a possible 0.1
                            percent reduction in mortgage interest rates. By these mechanisms, there
                            could be an annual benefit to the economy of $4.7 billion.

Cadastral Reform and Innovation for Australia - A National Strategy

Currently, our cadastral systems do not adequately capture the
relationships between what can be done on land (rights), what cannot
be done (restrictions) and what must be done (responsibilities). Nor can
we deliver to industry an accurate digital boundary framework and the
assurance that infrastructure delivery and precision farming is being
performed within titled boundaries.
Looking to the future, investment certainty and thus economic
sustainability can be delivered at three levels:
●   o
     n a global level, investor confidence can be increased through

    mortgage-backed securities if the cadastre and land registry are more
    closely coupled with financial and share markets,
●   a t a National Level, by shifting to a more detailed and consistent model
    to improve decision making and usability of the cadastre for trans-
    border land management and development; and                                  Urban infill, high rise
●   a t a jurisdictional level, by increasing productivity and reducing         dwellings, new transit

The densification of our cities is creating a complex data management
environment that is stretching the current capabilities of our cadastral
system. Housing is set to increase in existing urban areas [8, 9] and become
more diversified. Mixed use precincts will be characterised by greenfield
developments, service clusters, walkable neighbourhoods and transport
corridors enabling equitable distribution of housing and jobs. Planning
restrictions will be dynamic with some precincts commercial by day and
residential by night.
Urban infill, high rise dwellings, new transit developments and the
increase in number of interests on land will put pressure on our cadastre to
become a central decision support tool for government and the broader
community.
To support decision making our cadastre will need to communicate all
rights, restrictions and responsibilities relating to land and do so in a way
that is accurate, readily visualised and includes the dynamic nature of
interests on land.

                                                                                                        9

                              The main impetus for change is society’s expectation that quality

ICSM has applied a strategic lens to this proposed strategy and will
continue this approach to view activities that are defined as contributing to
the transformation and growth of the cadastral business and the profession
as a whole.
The strategic lens will be applied to assess whether new innovations fall
under the umbrella of the final strategy and should be selected for support
by ICSM. Its purpose is to ensure our enduring principles are part of the
design of environments in which cadastral systems are managed.
The ICSM proposed enduring principles are:
●   Certainty in the spatial extent of ownership
●	Uniquely defined land (and/or property) that is common to all registers
    – ownership, valuation, land use
●   Integrity and security of the parcel boundary system
●   Strong relationship between regulators and the industry
●   Appropriate regulatory standards

Cadastre 2034 Powering Land & Real Property

     Powering the Future
     The Framework
     This strategy presents a forward looking framework that is user centric,
     accommodates individual jurisdictional differences and promotes efficient
     and cost effective sustainable cadastral management practices (Figure 2).
     At the same time, it maintains those elements of transparency, integrity
     and security that are vital to a first class land administration system.
     The Cadastre 2034 Framework:
     ●   Establishes a common vision for all jurisdictions.
     ●	Developsan agreed set of enduring principles to preserve the essential
         components of the cadastre.
     ●   Recognises that the cadastre has different aspects and features.
     ●	Expresses  the goals required to achieve a consistent and coordinated
         approach to the transformation of the Australian cadastral infrastructure
         over the next 20 years.
     ●   Incorporates actions and innovations.
     ●	Identifiesthe required outcomes that will guide the governance, policy
         development, standards, research programs and the design of future
         systems.

Cadastre 2034 Powering Land & Real Property

                           Goal 1:
                           A cadastre that is fundamental to land
                           ownership and managed sustainably
                           Objective
                           To retain the integrity and societal benefits of the cadastre, whilst
                           increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of its management and
                           preserving the information resource for future generations.
                           This objective takes an all encompassing view of how efficiently we design,
                           organise and operate the cadastral system of the future. Strategically we
                           need to consider not only the impact on our environment, but also how we
                           develop, use and preserve cadastral information resources.
                           It’s vital that we consider all components of the cadastral system along the
                           entire value chain including the people, programs, processing and storage
                           of information when we commit to improving, automating, sharing and
                           preserving our land and property information.

                           ●	Reform    business and automate processes to reduce the amount of
                               effort required per land transaction, eliminating red tape and reducing
                               consumer compliance costs.

                           ●   Build skills and knowledge resources aligned to new methods.
                           ●	Invest in public/private partnerships to collaboratively maintain the
                               cadastre.
                           ●	Develop    a participatory model to include community volunteered data

Cadastre 2034 Powering Land & Real Property

                             Goal 3:
                             A broader cadastre integrated with
                             legal and social interests on land
                             Objective
                             To integrate the cadastre with knowledge about registered and
                             unregistered land-related rights, restrictions and responsibilities so
                             that people can interact and make wise decisions about land.
                             The cadastre is a fundamental source of land boundary data that can be
                             incorporated within a spatial infrastructure and compared and contrasted
                             with other registered and unregistered interests on land.
                             However, many rights, restrictions and responsibilities (RRR) are not spatially
                             depicted, and some cannot be accessed easily. If we are to improve decision
                             making and make informed use of land, we need to integrate a wider range
                             of interests on land within a broader cadastral framework.

    Creating a Virtual World of Property
    In the last 20 years we have seen a significant increase in the number of tunnels, underground
    parking places, shopping malls, aboveground road and railway networks, multistorey
    apartments combining commercial and residential, and roof top gardens. These types
    of infrastructure have one thing in common; their ownership is difficult to register in a

Cadastre 2034 Powering Land & Real Property

                           Goal 5:

                             the future will be characterised by:
                             ●   clear custodianship and stewardship;
                             ●	a   mix of authoritative and crowd sourced data with clearly defined origin;
                             ●   seamless nationwide access to multi-agency data;
                             ●   the integration of government information in understandable forms;

                             ●   a choice of 2, 3 and 4-dimensional virtual models; and

                             The goals indentified in this strategy are aligned with a culture of reform
                             and innovation along the cadastral information value chain. This is
                             depicted in Figure 3.
                             Delivery of Cadastre 2034 will require holistic thinking, innovative planning
                             and a collaborative approach to the stewardship of information.
