In February 2019 the OGC White Paper on Land Administration is published. This White Paper provides an overview of the land administration domain and relevant developments. It also proposes necessary actions for the design and development of an implementation standards. The document includes an overview of needs and requirements as earlier discussed during the various LADM Workshops.

During the closing session of the 2021 LADM/3D workshop (embedded in the FIG e-Working Week 2021) FIG expressed its commitment to collaborate with ISO and OGC regarding the implementation of LADM as an integral component of the standardisation efforts in land administration.

Currently, the LADM revision is ongoing and includes land registration, marine space georegulation, valuation information, spatial plan information. Further, enhanced support in cadastral surveying is proposed to be provided, through a comprehensive survey model. The new edition is multipart, part 6 is on a standard for LADM implementation. The development of this can be strategically aligned with the developments of the other parts of LADM edition II.

This paper serves as an initial step towards fostering a dialogue to promote the
implementation of LADM. It emphasis the creation of a Land Administration Domain Model Standards Working Group Charter within the OGC. A draft charter is currently available for reference, along with insights from the 2019 White Paper. It is imperative to engage stakeholders from industry/business, government and academia in this development to ensure its success and relevance.
