Reform of Icelandic Cadastre

Well-laid Foundation Ensures Strong Future
Spatial delimitation of ownership rights remains absent from the land-registration procedure in Iceland, resulting in confusion. Increasing value of land has, among other issues, induced the need to move from a partially descriptive cadastre to a fully spatial one. The authors present considerations surrounding how to proceed with reform. Land registration in Iceland is administered by the government through the Land Registry of Iceland (LRI), under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance. At regional level, municipalities and Land Registry offices supplement these bodies. The LRI has a complex role and services many ministries. Land RegistryThe primary function of LRI... (read more)

Digital Cadastre in Ukraine

The State Service of Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre in Ukraine has recently achieved a milestone: the unified National Cadastral System was launched in January 2013. For the first time since Ukraine became independent, paper archives were opened and all data on land brought into a single database in electronic form. At the same time the public cadastral map has been opened to the citizens and users. Eurogeographics, the membership association of the European cadastre, land registry and national mapping authorities commented that it already can be said with confidence that the national cadastral system works well. As proof, over 27,000... (read more)

Updating the Cadastre in Ecuador

Using Photogrammetry and Lidar Data
The integration of photogrammetry and Lidar can generate synergies and economic savings. The two techniques were used together to detect irrigation and drainage canals for a project aiming to improve irrigation methods and create the related land registry in the province of El Oro in Ecuador. For over 60 years, the decentralised provincial government in El Oro, Ecuador, has been committed to the agro-productive development of the province. As part of this, it has promoted the construction, management and maintenance of a network of irrigation and drainage canals, thus supporting investments in the agro-productive sectors. To improve the efficiency of... (read more)

Towards Cadastre 2034: Part II

International Experts Speak Out
Bennett and co-authors from the University of Melbourne, Australia, have described six design elements relating to the role and nature of future cadastres, presented at the FIG 2010 congress in Sydney and published in GIM International (July 2010); an inspiring starting point for further dialogue. To encourage discussion we invited leading experts and practitioners to send us their own views and future vision. We received no fewer than ten replies, half of which were printed in the September issue. Here are the remaining five.     Cadastre 2014 is an influential publication produced by a FIG Commission 7 working group... (read more)

Unconventional Development of a Cadastre

Systematic Surveying of Informal Settlements in Mozambique
In the city of Manica, a planning exercise based on the principles of participatory community planning is currently taking place in the Josina Machel neighbourhood. The city is one of the municipalities of the country with its own administrative autonomy, with limited financial resources. One of the objectives is a systematic survey of informal settlements surrounding the centre of the city. Compared to normal cadastral surveys, the approach presented here can be qualified as unconventional. A legal title of effective land tenure for inhabitants will encourage them to improve their dwellings. Minimum access requirements have to be assured, by constructing... (read more)

Digitally Transforming Cadastre in Jamaica

Eight Years of Sustained GIS-based Land Management Success
Prior to the year 2000, less than half of the parcels in Jamaica were formally registered, and even the simplest of land transactions took weeks to complete. In 2001, those delays and a public outcry about widespread land fraud led to bipartisan support to merge all of Jamaica’s cadastral departments. A modern system of record immunised to fraudulent transactions was established. That became Jamaica’s official National Land Agency (NLA) and was the first step in the country’s land management digital transformation. Since then, the NLA has experienced extraordinary improvements in processing times and performance – all because of the digitisation... (read more)

Towards a Digitized Citizen-oriented Armenian Cadastre

Armenia is moving towards a more transparent, secure, unified and citizen-oriented cadastral system. To achieve this, digitizing cadastral archives is essential. Digital availability of cadastral information will enable better management of lands, documented rights and tenure security for all Armenians. The Cadastre Committee has asked Kadaster, The Netherlands' Land Registry and Mapping Agency, for support. In Armenia there is currently no unified approach to archive cadastral and land registry records. The integrated cadastre on real estate has little ability to support management and assessment of lands and real estate, and the registration of the natural, economic and legal status of...
