Cadastre in Turkey is executed as two-dimensional (2D) and parcel-based. The third dimension (3D) on land and real estate is shown in 2D on the map with permanent rights. The use of

underground spaces cannot be registered. There are various problems in the registration and mapping of real estates that are under or above these excluded places. The research was

motivated by some problems that have taken place in the Turkey 3D cadastre due to the inadequate spatial information systems. For this purpose, it is aimed to design a 3D cadastre

country profile that takes into account the Turkish National Spatial Data Infrastructure (TUCBS in Turkish) land registry and cadastral data model and is compatible with the Land Administration

Domain Model (LADM), which is defined within ISO 19152. In this study presents a detailed overview of the Turkish legal cadastre system and a proposal for realisation based on

international standards.
