Positive aspects The Torrens system in NSW Technology as an enabler A register of rights, not just a titling system Spatial data infrastructure approach Focus on rights, obligations and restrictions in the central register of restrictions Surveying outlook, vision and integration
We are busy building and developing the Title Registries of today and struggling with the complexities of introducing a whole new way of doing business through electronic conveyancing. But what will the Registries of the future be like?
Will the role of the Registries within the conveyancing industry change? Will they be virtual organisations? Will they be relegated to back-room processing factories? What will be the scope of their activities? Will their influence expand across other sectors?
Before we can consider these questions we need to look at what is happening in related industries and with the associated enabling technology. Around the world jurisdictions are taking advantage of inter operability and enterprise architecture to link and combine spatial and aspatial data to provide electronic service delivery (ESD) and expose themselves to the concept of “location based services”. The following slide shows the four stages of ESD Activity and the underpinning activity of e-pay.
ESD Activity Service DescriptionRole of Service Provider Customer Action Customer Experience e-Publish Information, instructions, hyperlinks One way traffic, static Up-to-date webpage informationSeeks e- information Static web e-Inquiry Specific inquiry to a database Multiple or combined inquiry to database Static view Up-to-date databases & e-service system e-Service requeste-Response e-Lodge Client submits information to a database electronically Process information received through e-facility e-Transmit by client e-Receipt e-Trade Two way “trade” of data Interdependent e-actions Combination of e-lodge, e-pay and e- inquire Provides secure, accessible environment for e-market e-Trade Staged completion of e- Trade e-Pay Completes financial transfers for all e-activity sales, trades, lodge, billing Provide access to secure electronic banking services to support business Authorise payments e-Receipts e-Debits ELECTRONIC SERVICE DELIVERY ACTIVITIES This table outlines ESD activities and describes the role of service providers and customers.
Most of the examples around the world show a proliferation of websites but a relatively low take up rate of these electronic Services, especially those related to “location based services”, which are inextricably linked to the core business of RG’s and SG’s. This is understandable as most sites have not progressed past the e-publish and e-enquiry stage and it is not until the services can provide e-lodge and e-trade that a comprehensive business interaction can take place. The present direction in Australia towards e-conveyancing is an example of e-trade. However, some other jurisdictions across the globe who have implemented e-conveyancing have been disappointed by the take up rate – why?.
The following slide shows the complexity and hierarchical nature of the layers of geo-spatial information that is required for Emergency Management and Counter Terrorism. This information relies on cadastral and property information to provide the framework for all the other layers. Naturally each industry has a different hierarchy of information, but they are all dependent on the fundamental cadastral and property layers. What will be the role of the Land Registries in such future activitiy ?
To access this complex information we need an interoperability framework that allows for a distribution and flexible approach. This approach means that custodians maintain control of the data but each group or industry with appropriate authority can seamlessly build interactive integrated information sets.

Given this world of interoperability and whole-of- Government enterprise architecture combined with the ability to provide comprehensive e-trade functionality where do Registries of the future fit in? If we return to the questions posed at the beginning of these slides we can now address these in the context of the new enabling technologies.
Will the role of the Registries within the conveyancing industry change? The way we undertake our business through the registry offices is and will continue to change significantly, however, this should not diminish in any way the leadership role the Registrars General (RG’s) will continue to play in the conveyancing and land based industries. Will the registries of the future be virtual organisations? Part of the activities could be undertaken in a virtual sense, but the important advisory and leadership role of the Registrars General will not be virtual – what will their “value added be” setting of standards, guiedlines and oversight of statutory compliance.
Will the Registries be relegated to back-room processing factories? Only if we allow this to happen. For example, the term ‘automatic registration’ is sometimes used to describe what is really ‘electronic examination’. If these terms give rise to the belief that registration is a simple ‘vending machine’ transaction, then we will be perceived as a back end process only. The next slide depicts a range of the expanding activities that some registries are embracing and a selection of the industry sectors that are dependent on this information. What will be the scope of the activity?

The preceding slide shows that as a central part of the fundamental building blocks of geo-spatial information, some Registrars may have an expanding responsibility and accountability across other major sectors – they will need to if their relevance is to be increasingly maintained. Will their influence expand across other sectors?
eco-civic regionalisation project for regional NSW
Objective To identify administrative boundary’s issues based on regional socio-economic research, using spatial analysis
The area that a person regards as their community can be plotted on a map, together with their ‘home point’ ie their place of usual residence
In 3-D the area that a person regards as their community can be represented as a disc This disc can be approximated by an elliptical disc
The community areas for all the people in a district is a pile of elliptical discs If the number of people is large, it can be represented by a smoothly curved surface
A boundary that cuts through very few community areas (purple line) is preferable to a boundary that cuts through many such areas (red line).
Preliminary findings … 75% 50% 25%
Specific Outputs Specific outputs from the initiative are: 3D modelled social surface of communities of interest for NSW. Three levels of modelled civic regions of regional communities of interest for NSW. Biophysical classification of ecological landscapes.
Specific Outputs (cont’d) Level 1 eco-civic regions to provide broad scale integration across large catchment or resource management regions and their land- user communities. Level 2 eco-civic regions appropriate for Resource Planning and Management.
Specific Outputs (cont’d) Level 3 eco-civic regions appropriate for State Government service delivery and future local government areas and A comparison of a performance of eco-civic regions (level 1-3) with some current administrative areas (LGA’s Planning, Catchment Management Authority, Planning and Health Regions.
When complete … 3D model of social surface of communities Various levels of modeling of civic regions related to regional communities A biophysical classification of ecological landscapes A detailed comparison of eco-civic regions with current administrative areas for LGAs, CMAs, Planning and Health Regions. for whole of NSW
Negative aspects Impact of historical policy decisions Structural failure and silo mentality – resistance to change. Federated system with another tier of local Government
National co-operative initiatives ANZLIC PSMA National e-conveyancing project Counter Terrorism National Data Network (Statistical/Spatial Interface) National Competition Reform Sustainability (landscapes, water, rural, communities)
Who and what is ANZLIC? ANZLIC – the Spatial Information Council is the peak intergovernmental organisation providing leadership in the collection, management and use of spatial information in Australia and New Zealand
2006 Milestones 1.Parliament House national SI showcase 2.Jurisdictional SI showcases 3.Showcase “Team Aust/NZ” to FIG in 2006 4.Industry partnerships developed 5.Framework to identify key national datasets 6.Topographic Information Management Toolkit & standards developed
2006 Milestones – continued… 7.Develop and deliver metadata tool compliant with new ANZLIC metadata profile 8.One new community of practice engaged 9.Graduate & practitioner recruitment and skills needs/development promoted 10.Schools education package developed 11.Harmonised regulatory framework scoped
Key improvements Building on Single Land Cadastre-creating value -unbundling property rights Data Integration and increased interoperability Quadruple bottom line objectives and actions Collaborative arrangements-driven by user needs with light regulation
Critique of Integrated Model Has the core elements and inter- relationships needs to be adaptive and relevant to all Danger of being static and limited if viewed in one dimension – needs to be dynamic and connected to “live work and play concept” with focus on spatial representation – location based services.
