Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) is seeking software partners to develop its 3D Cadastral Survey Model and Exchange program.

The trans-Tasman program aims to develop a digital system of cadastral survey lodgment, seeking a widely adopted standard for use for exchanging digital cadastral survey information between industry and government land administration agencies.

The program has been initiated by the Intergovernmental Committee for Surveying and Mapping (ICSM) with Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) leading the work in partnership with Australian land information agencies in New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, and Victoria.

LINZ has indicated that the project will have two primary objectives:

  1. To develop a harmonised data model that will cover all data components across all New Zealand and Australian jurisdictions.
  2. In liaison with survey software vendors, to identify options for encoding and exchanging the data in the model.

New Zealand’s Surveyor General Anselm Haanen said several influences have combined to prompt the need for the 3D CSDM.

“The 3D CSDM programme is a response to the challenges cadastral surveying is increasingly facing in responding to community demand for improved quality of cadastral information, including in the third dimension,” he said.

“These drivers are pushing the modernisation of cadastral systems in the surveyor’s space as well as within land administration agencies. We want to enable the fully digital exchange of cadastral information, and particularly enable surveyors to transition from lodging paper or PDF plans to fully digital data, including 3D elements.”

LINZ is currently seeking consultants with experience and expertise in data modelling, interpreting cadastral survey information and survey/spatial data transfer and standards.

“We are hoping that survey software vendors will help us eventually achieve the ultimate goal of surveyors being able to lodge fully digital 3D cadastral survey datasets, across Australia and New Zealand,” said Mr. Haanen.

A Request for Proposals will be posted on the New Zealand Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS) in August 2020.  A Notice of Intention (GETS ID# 22994906) was posted on 20 July.
