Urban Environments are becoming increasingly more populated which is causing a change in society’s lifestyles, modes of transport and ways of living into more vertical forms. This is resulting in the transcending of the cadastre from traditional and historic 2D land parcels into 3D spaces to which are attached complex rights, restrictions and responsibilities. Often the visualisation of these 3D spaces is unclear using archaic two mediums such as survey plans. Given the capability of terrestrial laser scanners to deliver information rich point clouds and 3D datasets, the aim of this dissertation is to investigate the feasibility of using a terrestrial laser scanner to visualise a 3D cadastre.

Firstly, the chosen topic of the dissertation is introduced and discussed, including the definition of the subject problem of the project, justification of the project and the research aims of the project. The second chapter entails the literature review concerning the chosen topic of the dissertation. 3D cadastres are introduced and the legal and administrative aspects of the topic are reviewed. The visualisation side of 3D cadastres is discussed and a review of terrestrial laser scanning and 3D building modelling is entailed. The third chapter outlines the methodology of the project concerning the site selection, resources required and the laser scanning and control surveys.

Chapter four discusses in depth the process of data processing and 3D modelling of the collected point cloud, along with the steps to produce a visualisation of a 3D cadastre using a 3D PDF. Chapter Five discusses and analyses the results of the visualisation of the 3D cadastre using a 3D PDF as well as the accuracy and application implications for this project. Finally the dissertation is wrapped up in Chapter 6 with a review of objectives and some concluding remarks.
