Behnam Atazadeh


Dr Behnam Atazadeh is a research fellow in the Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration, Department of Infrastructure Engineering. He also works as an ePlan officer in the ePlan project funded by Land Use Victoria, Victorian State Government.

He has worked on the ARC linkage project '3D Property Ownership Map Base for Smart Urban Land Administration' in close collaboration with several government agencies and industry partners including Land Use Victoria, Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping (ICSM), and City of Melbourne. Dr Atazadeh's research is about advancing the science and practice of land administration. He has extensive experience in leveraging new digital technologies such as Building Information Modelling for modernising land administration systems.

Dr Atazadeh co-authored a new book titled 'BIM and Urban Land Administration' published by CRC Press, which describes the fundamental theory and practicality of intersecting BIM and land administration domains. He is a committee member of Standards Australia where he is involved in the development of building information modelling ISO standards. He also received the Victorian Spatial Excellence Award (VSEA) for Postgraduate Student in 2017. This award is conferred to Dr Atazadeh due to his PhD research project which significantly contributed to the ongoing progression of the surveying and spatial industry.

Dr Atazadeh's research expertise contributes to a wide variety of disciplines such as surveying and geomatics, land administration, infrastructure engineering, geographic information systems, architecture and construction, urban planning, and building and facility management. He is an active peer-reviewer for different international journals such as Applied Geomatics, Automation in Construction, Cities, ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information, International Journal of Geographical Information Science, Journal of Spatial Science, International Journal of Digital Earth, Transactions in GIS, Land Use Policy, ASCE Journal of Urban Planning and Development, MDPI Open Access Journals (Buildings, Information, Sustainability, Energies, Urban Science, Electronics).
