This paper describes a Swedish approach construction a model of the cadastral domain.The National Land Survey of Sweden (Lantmäteriet) has developed an UML-based, objectorientatedinformation model describing real property information stored in the Swedish RealProperty Register. The register is part of the Swedish Land Data Bank System.The work has been initiated due to a general need for an object-orientated and applicationindependent description of real property information. The project is part of a greater taskdescribing all information handled by Lantmäteriet in an object-orientated way, not focussing onthe technical storage of the information, but the information itself. A non-technical modellingapproach is the foundation for more cost-efficient development of new software and routinesmanaging and processing cadastral information in the future.The model is the result of co-operation between governmental agencies, describing theSwedish cadastre. The cadastral domain model has been constructed in a project initiated byLantmäteriet with the purpose to establish a common description of real property informationnot limited to local, technical solutions. The work has been done in co-operation with nationaland local agencies handling cadastral information. The model acts as a basis for an increaseddata and information interchange between governmental and non-governmental agencies and isa part of the Swedish, digital infrastructure. The model is not a Swedish standard, but might be acontribution to a future Swedish standardisation process.
