3D Cadastre in an International Context
by Jantien E. Stoter

3D Cadastre in an International Context demonstrates how to record 3D scenarios in order to improve insight into overlapping constructions.


  • Identifies problems of current cadastral registration in order to structure an international discussion on 3D cadastre
  • Details how to model 3D geo-objects in a database management system (DBMS)
  • Explores how to access and analyze 3D geo-objects organized in a geo-DBMS
  • Reviews the state-of-the-art in 3D GIS
  • Designs conceptual models for a 3D cadastre based upon current registration and available techniques in order to improve the 3D cadastral registration process
  • Examines the translation of 3D cadastre conceptual models into logical models
  • Evaluates conceptual models by translating conceptual alternatives into prototype implementations using techniques developed within the research presented in the book
