Historically, the strength of a land surveyor lies in the ability to use and understand bothmeasurement science and land management, and to apply these skills in a wide range of landrelated activities ranging from sustainable development to environmental management. Inresponse to the theme of this conference which focuses on the role of Geomatics in GlobalSustainable Development it is appropriate to consider how these skills have evolved and areevolving within the broad surveying discipline.It is proposed that a major dimension of the measurement science skill is reflected in the growingimportance of spatial data infrastructures (SDI) and the land related skills are reflected in the rediscoverythat the role of land administration plays in serving economic, environmental andsocial priorities in society. While SDI play a much broader role than supporting landadministration, land administration could be considered a key driver in SDI evolution.The objective of this paper is to identify SDI and land administration trends and developmentsby drawing on the research of past, current and future projects undertaken by researchers in theCentre for SDI and Land Administration at The University of Melbourne.
