Urbanisation presents myriad challenges for countries, primarily by increasing pressure on limited land resources through demands for housing, services and infrastructure. This is exacerbated in city centres, where land values are often highest, resulting in acute needs to effectively manage land resources while capitalising on land and property assets. A worldwide trend towards adopting and using 3D technologies and information to improve the management of land and property is apparent. Within land administration, the trend is evident in the development and implementation of 3D cadastres. However, the ability to introduce and sustainably use new technologies to improve land and property management depends on understanding the current institutional environment that underpins relevant processes. Institutions feature prominently in land administration literature but analysis is often undertaken without a theoretical framework specific to institutions. This precludes the ability to make comparisons across jurisdictions to deepen understanding of why some institutions work while others fail. This paper applies and incorporates insights from new institutional economics and the Institutional Analysis and Development Framework as an appropriate framework for analysis of the institutions supporting land and property information. Some preliminary considerations are provided. These identify institutional issues in using land and property information from an Australian perspective, specifically the state of Victoria, within the context of moving towards a 3D environment. They also assist diagnosis of future issues and potential directions for research.
