Keynote – Modern Land Administration

Brent Jones, PE, PLS, Esri

What’s the status of land administration systems around the world?  Who is doing what?  What are the trends?  Who in involved?  Technology is rapidly advancing how land administration agencies collect, manage and share data. New capabilities are enabling developing economies to leapfrog traditional survey practices and implement modern cadastral systems rapidly.  Managing data via web services is enabling distributed systems while eliminating duplicate data and efforts, improved data sharing, and modern engagement with citizens and taxpayers.

Newly released, the parcel fabric in ArcGIS Pro is designed for the next generation of demands for cadastral agencies.  Fully services-based, the parcel fabric is now enabled with 3D/4D capabilities, user-configured workflows along with new functionality to connect cadastral features to the legal source defining rights, restrictions and responsibilities.
