In cooperation with the 3D GeoInfo Conference, 11-13 November 2014: 3D GeoInfo venue
The registration fee for the 3D Cadastre Workshop is approx. 450 Euro (= 2293.20 AED: United Arab Emirates Dirham), the fee for the combined 3D Cadastre Workshop / 3D GeoInfo Conference is approx. 580 Euro (= 2948.40 AED). The fee includes one event dinner.
Visit visas are required for entry into the UAE. Citizens of certain countries are exempted from the visit visa requirement. Please consult with the nearest UAE embassy or consulate. If required, a visit visa can be obtained through your hotel, or by applying directly through the nearest UAE consulate.

3D Cadastre Workshop

The increasing complexity of infrastructures and densely built-up areas requires a proper registration of the legal
status (private and public), which can only be provided to a limited extent by the existing 2D cadastral registrations.
The registration of the legal status in complex 3D situations will be investigated under the header of 3D Cadastres.

The 4th International Workshop on 3D Cadastres addresses the following topics:
  • 3D Cadastre operational experiences (analysis, LADM based, learn from each other, discover gaps)
  • 3D Cadastre cost effective work flow for new/updated 3D parcels = 4D (part of whole chain:
    from planning/design/permit in 3D, to registration/use in 3D)
  • 3D Cadastre web-based dissemination (usability, man-machine interfaces, including mobile/AR)
  • Legal aspects for 3D Cadastre, best legal practises in various legislation systems
  • Focus on large cities, including developing countries

Paper submission
Full papers will be included in both the on-line and printed proceedings (available at the workshop), published by the FIG with ISBN/ISSN reference.

Working sessions
Similar to earlier versions of the 3D Cadastre workshop, the programme will not only consist of plenary presentations (and discussions), but there will also be parallel working sessions on 4 different topics: legal framework, initial registration, data management and visualization. During the first two days of the workshop there will be parallel sessions for these topics. On the last day of the workshop the chairs of the working sessions will present the outcome in the closing plenary session: state of the art, user requirements, developments, proposed research agenda.
