Urban sprawl and increased land demand, especially in industrial and commercial city centres, endorse the development of complex urban structures. Urbanization trends are emerging, e.g., the 18-hour and 15-minutes cities, which affect land planning and construction. Stakeholders from different backgrounds reshape the current and future status of cities and take part, directly or indirectly, in related land decision-making. These call for the creation of one common multi-purpose, multi-dimensional land management system (MMLMS) that serves the various end-users who shape land property management and is capable of handling contemporary urban transformation. This research addresses this problem in a holistic approach, investigating the theoretical, conceptual, technical, and ethical aspects of augmenting existing 2D land-management systems into multi-dimensional ones, relating to height (3D), time (4D), and scale (level-of-detail, LODs, 5D).

A comprehensive technological solution for adding third dimension is presented, together with algorithms for resolving problems that have not previously been solved, while ensuring the integrity and legitimacy of geometry, topology, and semantics. Second, methodologies for integrating time and LODs were suggested based on a Delphi study. The outcomes of the Delphi study included defining basic terminologies ; recognizing consensuses, conflicts, and concerns among stakeholders regarding MMLMSs ; and solving technical aspects of time and LODs. Third, guiding steps for ethical data collection were suggested based on a values sensitive design (VSD) methodological investigation and the outcomes of a questionnaire addressing land surveyors’ community. This contributes by allowing ethical, sustainable, and affordable data collecting into MMLMS which will need massive data input.

The results of this research contribute for removing barriers impeding sustainable development processes necessary for the realization of comprehensive land processes that are essential for the automatic management of our complex and dynamic urbanization. An operating MMLMS is expected to support UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs), such as poverty reduction, food security, and disaster risk management.
