The literature emphasizes that the administration of property taxes needs well-developed inventories or registers that provide complete and accurate records of the taxed properties and their legal-economic attributes. This requiremen...

Cadastral information is a reference data component, of any spatial data infrastructure (SDI). During recent years, several organisational and individual research projects have investigated the cadastral domain. Two paradigms characterize much of this research and their methodologies: a behavioural paradigm or, alternatively, a ‘design research’ pa...
Article
The multitude of rights in land and the recording of these rights are addressed by a number of studies, yet a recognized paradigm for such studies seems missing. Rights in land are recorded and managed through either cadastral systems or land administration systems depending on the legal system of the countries concerned. The cadastre, however, is...

A code list in Unified Modeling Language (UML), a simple list of values without any structure, can be employed as a simple data type to further capture the semantics of a domain. The code list values as used in international standards (e.g. ISO and OGC) are generally presented without definition, reference to the source of a definition, multi-lingu...

Spatial data in a Land Administration (LA) establish a fundamental geospatial data theme (see UN GGIM, 2018) and the integrated geospatial information framework for any Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI). Domain-specific standards, an integral component of the SDI, play an essential role to represent the semantics of domains, specify links between d...

The fact that both the ISO 19152:2012 Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) and the OGC 15–111r1 Land and Infrastructure Conceptual Model Standard (LandInfra) exist within the domain of Land Administration, calls for a mediating platform, which could support an alignment of the standards. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate, how semanti...

Standards like the ISO 19152:2012 Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) basically specifies classes and the relations among them. However, this methodology cannot catch the richness of variations of the domain, and therefore code lists are introduced as a supplement. In fact, the LADM mentions a number of code lists for each of the packages of th...

The challenge to develop interactive information services for new domains is supported by Knowledge Organization Systems and Services (KOS), which model the underlying semantic structure of a domain through classification systems, thesauri, gazetteers, or ontologies. The ISO 19152:2012 Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) is an international sta...
