ItemThe cadastral survey requirements of developing countries in the Pacific region: with particular reference to FijiWilliamson, Ian P. (Commonwealth Association of Surveying and Land Economy (CASLE), 1982)The cadastral survey systems introduced into many developing Pacific countries during colonial eras often do not meet the social and economic demands placed on them at the present time. Such systems can seriously limit the availability and transfer of land hence restricting the development and economic advancement of a country .This paper considers the subject generally although particular reference is made to the system presently operating in Fiji.
ItemCadastral survey techniques in developing countries: with particular reference to ThailandWilliamson, Ian P. ( 1983-09)The benefits of an efficient cadastral, survey and land registration system to developing countries are described. The legal, and particularly the technical procedures in creating a cadastre are discussed. The use of ground and photogrammetric survey techniques are highlighted. The reasons for restricting, the introduction of efficient cadastral survey systems are considered. Thailand is used as an example of a country which has, shown much flexibility in improving its cadastral system to better meet the needs of its developing economy. In this regard, the institutional and legal arrangements in the Thai cadastral system are described, as is the development of the cadastral survey system. As an indication of continuing flexibility, the future direction of 1he Thai cadastral, system is discussed.
ItemCoordination of cadastral surveys in New South WalesWilliamson, Ian P. ( 1984-12)A review is made of all major attempts and recommendations to introduce coordination of cadastral surveys into New South Wales. The review covers the period from the first directives by the Government for a general survey in the 1820s, to the proposals to introduce coordination based on the Integrated Survey Grid in the 1970s. An attempt is made to draw some conclusions from the historical review which will assist in the introduction of some form of coordination of cadastral surveys in the future.
ItemThe development of the cadastral survey system in New South WalesWilliamson, Ian P. ( 1984-03)This article reviews the development of the cadastral survey system in N.S.W. Particular emphasis is given to an understanding of why the system developed based on isolated survey principles. In reviewing the development, three critical periods have been considered: early survey administration, ‘1788- 1831; the formative years, 183l-1864; and refinement, 1864-present’.
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.
ItemTrends in land information system administration in AustraliaWilliamson, Ian P. ( 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.
