Land Tenure and Spatial Digital Twin

Land Tenure @ SAGE

Land is the ultimate resource without which life cannot be sustained. Land administration systems ensure that everyone's right to access land is secured. We investigate how land information can empower and modernise land administration systems. Our research includes technical and institutional aspects of 2D and 3D cadastral systems in developing and developed nations' contexts. Our current projects include:

  • Underground urban land administration (2020-2023)
  • Digital ledgers to modernise cadastral survey marks (2021-2024)
  • 3D cadastral database systems (2022-2024)
  • Land information challenges in informal settlements of Fiji (2023)


Spatial Digital Twin @ SAGE

Digital twins-enabled spatial data have become an increasingly valuable tool for understanding and interacting with our physical environment. Spatially enabled digital twins integrate geospatial information with sensor systems and IoT, enabling users to gain location-based insights and make informed decisions about place-based policy, planning, and development. Our research includes designing and developing standards-based spatial digital twins to facilitate design, simulation, operation and communication in urban planning, infrastructure, public safety, utility, energy, and oil and gas sectors. Our current projects include:

  • Conflict Management in Open Street Map
