ItemCadastral and land information systems: where are we heading?Williamson, Ian P. ( 1986)The land information system concept is reviewed with particular emphasis on the historical development of the central cadastral (parcel) data base. The role of cadastral surveying, cadastral mapping and the development of digital cadastral data bases is discussed. Future directions for parcel based land information systems are suggested, with a conceptual model for an integrated digital cadastral data base being highlighted. The changing roles of the surveying and mapping community, and the needs for education in the area, are highlighted.

( 1986)Current land information system (LIS) activities and trends, at the Commonwealth, state and local government levels in Australia, are briefly reviewed. The reasons for the pre-occupation with parcel (cadastral) data are discussed while recognising that the challenge for the next decade is the integration of resource, environmental and socio-economic data into parcel-based systems. LIS models are reviewed with particular emphasis on LIS administration in the Australian context.
