    3D Cadastre in Victoria Australia : Converting building plans of subdivision
    Aien, A ; Rajabifard, A ; Kalantari, M ; Williamson, I ; Shojaei, D (Geomares Publishing, 2011-08-01)
    Three-dimensional (3DD) land development is common, especially in urban areas. Management of 3D land rights, restrictions and responsibilities (3D RRRs) is one of the most important challenges in current land-administration systems, most of which are equipped with cadastres able only to maintain information in a 2D spatial information environment.

    Unfinished business: completing the mudmap on the riverbed - the legal lacuna in the tri-state area of the River Murray (Part 2)
    Park, M. M. ; Williamson, I. P. (Law Society of South Australia, 2008)
    With the approaching centenary of the Victorian-South Australian border litigation, the necessity of restoring and maintaining river flows in the Murray-Darling Basin river system including the equitable allocation of rights to those flows, and the failure of the four states and the Commonwealth to agree on the future co-operative administration of the Basin, the authors offer their resolution of the ‘missing’ border in the tri-state area of Victoria, New South Wales, and South Australia in the locale of Mildura-Wentworth-Renmark where the three states abut. The resolution of the missing border is essential to the proper exercise of spatial or territorial jurisdiction. Although of small consequence for the past 150 years the time is approaching when this issue must be resolved: it is ‘unfinished business’.

    Object-oriented concepts for software development and conceptual modelling in GIS and surveying
    Hesse, Walter ; Hazelton, William ; Williamson, Ian P. ( 1993)
    Recent years have seen a growing research interest amongst Information Technology professionals for Object Oriented Programming Systems (OOPS) and Object Oriented Geographic Information Systems (OOGIS). The nature of this research for the 'classical' surveyor demands a move away from the 'comfort zone' of Surveying Techniques, Mapping and LIS/GIS into the more fundamental areas of Computing Science. This move is essential for a better understanding of the necessary data modelling and general object-oriented concepts for Information Systems in general, and LIS/GIS more specifically. The aim of this paper is to give an overview of this relatively new and specialised field for the Surveying professional interested in GIS issues.

    Appropriate cadastral systems
    Williamson, Ian P. ( 1996)
    This paper discusses the role of cadastres in developing countries, reviews why cadastral systems have become much more important in the eyes of policy makers over the last ten years, particularly in developing worlds, and finally highlights some important lessons arising from establishing cadastral systems in developing countries over the past decade.
