A standard model for the Cadastre

This name has a paper presented in the Third ISDE Congress, held in the Czech Republic at 2003.

The authors, all of the ITC and the Department of Geodesy of the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands.
Although the link that I show (in English) has certain additional adaptations.

Model cadastre The document makes a proposal of how a cadastre model could be, seeking to avoid the duplication of individual initiatives; at the same time that the interaction of data between portals could be less painful ... well, it is good for me now that I am working on a conceptual document of cadastre. This model establishes a series of data known as "common space" without limiting the particularities with the premise that could be adapted to the different variants that exist in each country territory, which include the institutional conformation, levels of precision, finality vocation.

The document is very good, a large smoke, is the result of the review of different models in countries such as Holland, El Salvador, Bolivia, Denmark, Sweden, Portugal, Greece, Australia, Nepal, Egypt, Iceland, and several African and Arab countries . In its introductory section, it mentions the different initiatives that are binding, including the OGC, INSPIRE, EULIS, ISO Standards, 2014 Cadastre and FIG standards.

Cadastral Domain Model (CCDM)

Object subject right lemen The document works at the level of UML diagrams different classes of objects, starting from the three main Cadastral figures:

  • Object (Property)
  • Subject (Person)
  • Right (right or alteration)

This is the fundamental principle of any cadastre, which seeks to keep updated the relationship between people and real estate rights acquired, whether registered or in fact. Then special classes are made detailed for each of them, with specific colors that include:

  • Topographical Classes
  • Geometry and Topology
  • Legal and Administrative Classes
  • Control of historical changes

Object subject right lemen Then at the end they smoke marijuana assuming how objects could be handled in three dimensions and the legal space. Unfortunately the Spanish version does not include the respective colors of the original document and the pixelated quality of the images is terrible, so I recommend having the English version on hand. Also the content in Spanish is extracted, and does not include topics such as the examples built in gml.

The model goes for a long time, since despite being the intention of complying with the declaration of Cadastre 2014 regarding death to manual cartography and long life to modeling, it transcends taking the limited term "cadastre" where objects are plots, to " land administration »with territorial objects as the center.

The fact that the TC211 standards of the OGC (Geometry and Topology) have been imported gives weight to the OpenGIS context. But in the end, its impact is to propose how to take advantage of the demand for e-government and spatial data infrastructures, taking advantage of connectivity and information technology.

A great document, I recommend reading it and saving it in your collection of geofumadas because sooner or later you may need it.

Here you can download to Spanish version Of the Ministry of Economy and Finance of Spain.

Here you can download the English version of Eurocadastre, although some more extended details can be seen in the book "Cadastre 3D In the international context "


The document referred to here is an 6 version, known as Moscow '06. It includes the aggregates suggested in the 5 version that includes buildings within the RRR class and the PartOfParcel class is detailed separately. The first one presented in September of 2002, 5 months after Chrit Lemmen was engaged in a FIG event in Washington.

For 2012 the CCDM is known as LADM, and is a registered ISO standard. It is considered that the LADM is an evolution of the 2014 Cadastre.
