Geoconference on Cadastre 4.0
25-26 October 2016

Developments in technology have over years been a driver of permanent changes of workflows, of organisational structures and of requirements to professional qualification.

At this stage a wide range of devices for data capturing, either in situ or remotely, are available at reasonable prices and may be successfully used by less skilled users who will collect data actively or even passively and at a system steered rather than at a user steered quality level. The mechanism for processing big amounts of data are sophisticated and accessible to any professional in private and public service as well as to any other user. The extension of the number of stakeholders beyond the community of professionals towards a more application driven community of all kind of users and producers has by the time changed workflows and interaction among stakeholders dramatically and has created options to participate in the regular processes in establishing and maintaining cadastre.

Infrastructures have developed continuously and thus provide uncountable facilities to various data providers as well as to users for publishing and sharing data and for integrating big data into their business models in an easy, cheap and efficient way. Modern systems build upon collaboration of stakeholders, even if those are not aware of this but practising collaboration as being part of the systems.

Nowadays many cadastral processes are operating nearly automatically and at the same time providing a high level of security and increasing the level of information due to big amounts of data collected from various stakeholders and made available to be integrated in order to improve the quality. However the opening of systems does not make the processes more transparent to the citizen.

Cadastre 4.0 as a paradigm will close the circle between new technologies and automatisation of processes, products and services and stakeholders, including citizen and land owners as essential partners at equal level. It is a partnership model building coalitions /symbiosis between professionals in private and public service, between citizen and users and public authorities and between technology and society.

Cadastre 4.0 establishes links between the virtual and real world securing interests of land owners, society, governments and economy. It sets the scene for permanent communication between people, procedures and products. The Internet of Things is amended by a social aspect. Cadastre 4.0 is a cadastre for people made by people.

Cadastre 4.0 if implemented, will help to save resources and at the same time will provide solutions in a more flexible, a more efficient and a more social way.

The FIG Commission 7 Conference aims at bringing together professionals from private and public service, from academic institutions as well as from industry to discuss about how transparency can be made happen, participation can be realised and collaboration can be made more visible and how we as professionals can set the scene for stepping into the future.
