Australia: The Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping (ICSM) has released its draft national strategy on cadastre. Cadastre 2034: Powering Land and Real Property provides a national response to how our cadastral systems must evolve to meet changing societal demands, rapidly evolving technologies and environmental challenges.
The draft strategy advocates a federated national cadastre that represents the real world, being three-dimensional, dynamic and survey accurate. Recognising the fundamental nature of cadastre, the strategy places strong emphasis on ease of community access, in particular providing an integrated view of legal and social interests in land in the cadastral context.
ICSM is seeking views of the public on this nationally significant consultation document to help them make informed decisions on the final direction and form of the strategy. Submissions can be made via the ICSM website or email.
