    A better way to manage land information
    Tambuwala, Nilofer ; BENNETT, ROHAN ; RAJABIFARD, ABBAS (The Intermedia Group, 2010)
    Australia’s Federal Government has no constitutional authority over land administration. Each state and territory has its own system and, to date, this system has served the nation well. Each system is reflected in the historic, independent pattern where each jurisdiction computerises its own processes and operates according to its own timetable, needs, reporting functions, customer service design and other imperatives. However, the country’s capacity to meet increasingly national issues – such as management of the macro economy, a national property market, climate change response, disaster management, national business coordination and national security– is problematic. Seamless information about landownership, and its use, value and development is essential to the strategic planning of capital cities. Processes such as levying capital gains tax, allocating drought relief, and managing crime and terrorism all require broad strategic planning, as do the development of early warning systems for emergencies and climate change initiatives. As a consequence, national priorities that rely on information about land are faced with the technical, policy and institutional barriers that come with integrating data from multiple state-based sources. The solution is a national land information infrastructure.

    A toolbox for mapping and managing new interests over land
    BENNETT, ROHAN ; WALLACE, JUDE ; Williamson, Ian Philip ( 2008)
    The drive for sustainable development has led governments to create new interests over land. The role of cadastral and registration systems in the mapping and management of these new interests is unclear. Whilst these systems have always played an important role in the administration of land parcels and ownership, the new land interests are increasingly being mapped and managed elsewhere. As a result administrative inefficiencies and transaction complexities are growing. Existing cadastral and registration systems have the capacity to improve the situation; however, a guiding framework for their inclusion is needed. This paper introduces a framework of principles that articulate the roles of cadastres and registration systems in the management of new land interests. Importantly the framework is holistic and reflects other components essential to good land administration. These include the roles of land policy, legislation, flexible tenures, institutions, spatial data infrastructures and capacity building. The principles will systematize the management of land interests across different jurisdictions.
