TL;DR: Burdon et al. as discussed by the authors defined the extent and boundaries of land parcels as a matter of legal definition, which made a very large difference with most other types of geo-information, which depicts real life geographical phenomenon.
Abstract: concepts Land as the object of property rights is different from most other types of property. In many cases there is not a ‘logical’ object. The object has to be defined, has to be legally constructed, and can change relatively easily (compare § 2.2.5 and § 3.2.4). The objects are separated by boundaries which define where one landowner’s territory ends and the next begins. Even though there often is a reasonably high congruity between topographic boundary features and legal extent, there is no necessary identity between the topography of a parcel and the legal extent of that parcel. The extent and boundaries of land parcels are a matter of legal definition. (Burdon 1998: 152) Parcels and boundaries are abstract concepts. This makes a very large difference with most other types of geo-information, which depicts ‘real life’ geographical phenomenon. (compare van der Molen 2001: 15). Title plans and parcel maps are legal documents in a graphical form and not just another dataset for a geographical information system (GIS) (Burdon 1998: 154). Similarly the rights in land are abstract concepts. Property rights are an important example of institutions; humanly devised constraints that shape human interactions (see § 1.2.3). Rights in land are usually described in a complex system of land tenure. Through the abstract concept, land rights can grow into much more than a distribution mechanism for land use. The rights can be activated as capital, allowing inter alia for (cheaper) loans against collateral (see § 1.2.1). 78 SYSTEMS OF LAND REGISTRATION

TL;DR: The article is based on the dissertation ‘Systems of Land Registration – Aspects and their Effects’ (Zevenbergen 2002), which applies the systems approach to the field of land registration and cadastre.
Abstract: The article is based on the dissertation ‘Systems of Land Registration – Aspects and their Effects’ (Zevenbergen 2002), which applies the systems approach to the field of land registration and cadastre. It focuses on the technical, legal and organisational aspects, and their interrelation, of such systems of land registration. It includes a case study of four countries (the Netherlands, Indonesia, Austria and Ghana). The system of land registration is modelled, both by a static and by a dynamic model. The three main functions from the latter model (adjudication, transfer and subdivision) are elaborated as well. The importance of emergent properties within the systems approach is introduced; the example with regard to land registration being ‘trustworthiness’.

TL;DR: The development of an Application Domain Extension (ADE) for the immovable property taxation domain is outlined that expands the CityGML data model with the legal and administrative concepts defined in Turkish Law and could be a 3D national data model for municipal information systems and facilitate a more efficient taxation process.

TL;DR: An improved and extended version of the existing cadastral domain model, and the introduction of a modular approach (packages) to provide a extensible basis for efficient and effective cadastrals system development based on a model driven architecture.
Abstract: 1. avoid reinventing and re-implementing the same functionality over and over again, but provide a extensible basis for efficient and effective cadastral system development based on a model driven architecture, and 2. enable involved parties, both within one country and between different countries, to communicate based on the shared ontology implied by the model. The contributions of this paper consist of an improved and extended version of the existing cadastral domain model, and the introduction of a modular approach (packages). One of the main preconditions of the model development is to keep the model as transparent and simple as possible in order to be useful in practise.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors present a comprehensive treatment of the scientific approach to research within the context of the social sciences, emphasizing the relationship between theory, research, and practice, leading students through seven major, interrelated stages of research methods: definition of the research problem, statement of hypothesis, research design, measurement, data collection, data analysis, and generalization.
Abstract: This acclaimed text offers a comprehensive, systematic treatment of the scientific approach to research within the context of the social sciences. Emphasizing the relationship between theory, research, and practice, the book leads students through seven major, interrelated stages of research methods: definition of the research problem, statement of hypothesis, research design, measurement, data collection, data analysis, and generalization. Research activities are integrated throughout to get students actively involved in the real work of social science research. With its self-contained yet integrated chapters, the text adapts well to either a basic methods course, or a course that covers methods and statistics sequentially. The new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised, and is designed to help students take full advantage of the Internet and other electronic data sources plus the most current statistical software.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors explore the epistemology, ontology and rationality of each modelling approach, and describe the underlying assumptions embedded in them, and present a comparative philosophical study of the various approaches.
Abstract: Data modelling was hypothesised to be the salvation of an organisation's data problems. This book aims to analyse the problems encountered and to present a comparative philosophical study of the various approaches. The authors explore the epistemology, ontology and rationality of each modelling approach, and describe the underlying assumptions embedded in them.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present a handbook for use by land administrators and managers and as a textbook for trainees, aimed particularly at the developing world, where the resources available to acquire and manage land information may be limited.
Abstract: Prepared under the auspices of the Commonwealth Association of Surveying and Land Economy (CASLE), this is designed both as a practical handbook for use by land administrators and managers and as a textbook for trainees. The authors begin with a discussion on the different types of cadastral surveys - of the extent, value, and ownership of land - used in practice, continuing with sections on surveying, the handling of data, and questions of the economics and management of land information systems. The book is aimed particularly at the developing world, where the resources available to acquire and manage land information may be limited.
