Population growth and trends towards urban consolidation have lead to a change in cadastral definition within the Greater Sydney area as high-density mixed-use buildings becoming more prominent. This has lead to increased potential of conflicts between end-users regarding boundary locations and the associated rights, restrictions and responsibilities and the vertical subdivisions are used to alleviate potential sources of conflict within developments in the form of stratum subdivisions, Torrens title lots with vertical restrictions, and strata subdivisions, strata lots existing within a scheme. However due to the complexity of these plans, specifically stratum subdivisions, the usability for the end-user is limited without access to surveying knowledge and practices.

This dissertation sought to investigate the use of 3D visualisation within digital cadastral mapping to improve the end-users experience with understanding height limited boundaries and the relationship between lots within stratum subdivisions. Through the investigation of three case studies, each representing a different density of development with stratum subdivisions, and the modelling of the lots in Google Earth the research demonstrated how the use of 3D models improves the comprehension and ability to access spatial data through digital cadastral maps. The outcomes of this research suggest that the use of 3D models for height limited parcels can improve digital mapping and not to replace traditional surveying plans but provide a parallel format that is more user-friendly than the survey plan on its own.
