IACS and GERK in Slovenia - 04/05/2005
The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food of the Republic of Slovenia has presented the internet applications of land use in Slovenia. Besides the data from the digital land cadastres, orthopohotos, data layers with land use polygons, and topographic data are also traceable.
With the support of the GIS viewer-tools, common in every GIS application, the program enables the user to search the whole Slovenia. The internet application is part of the implementation of the Integrated Administration Control System (IACS). The reestablishment of IACS is a requirement for financial support from EU to member states.
Slovenia has been using the numerical data from the digital land cadastre for reporting and controlling direct payments in agriculture and rural development since the year 2000. The Ministry of Agriculture needs to establish the Register of Graphical Units of Land Use for each farm (GERK) by the end of this year. This will provide the basis for the direct payments for farmers. The register will be based on the digital land cadastre data, the cadastre of land use and orthophotos with the aim to registering actual land use.
