3D developments of land are common and affect land interests in urban populated areas. Managing 3D land rights, restrictions and responsibilities (3D RRRs) is one of the most important challenges in the current land administration systems which are equipped with cadastres that are only able to maintain 2D spatial information. 3D cadastres would overcome these problems. 3D cadastre should be capable of storing, manipulating, querying, analysis, updating, and visualising 3D land rights, restrictions and responsibilities. To develop such a system, 3D cadastral aspects should be considered in any jurisdictions. They are legal, institutional and technical aspects of 3D cadastre which provide frameworks to develop and implement 3D cadastre. This paper will investigate aspects of 3D cadastre and analyse them using an underground car park in Victoria as a case study.
