||Land and Real Estate Management, Surveying and Mapping
GDi GISDATA solutions help national survey and mapping agencies, cadastral offices, government property stewards, local governments and others in:
- establishing and maintaining cadastral GIS databases
- cadastral mapping
- land registration
- real estate valuation
- building local, regional, national and global spatial data infrastructures (SDI)
- building inventories of territorial units, permanent geodetic control points, national borders, etc.
Cadastral GIS databases are key sources of information in many areas. Using GDi GISDATA solutions, data on land parcels, buildings and apartments concerning location, shape, ownership, value, legal regimes, land use and history of changes become valuable information for numerous categories of users. That information is vital for a society that strives for:
- good governance,
- high quality planning,
- fair taxation,
- rapid economic development.
GDi GISDATA solutions for cadastral information management and exchange link technical description of parcels, physical objects and encumbrances with registered legal relationship of properties and owners.
Land registration guarantees security of ownership and other rights on land and objects on that land. It is also key mechanism of the society in turning property’s inherent market and usability capital value into money. GDi GISDATA solutions for land registration support are proven in many countries for their reliability, innovation and integration with GIS technology.
Real estate valuation
Valuation of land has traditionally been understood under cadastral records creation and management in many countries through history. It is used for taxing purposes, but also for mortgages in bank and for asset management in governments and large companies.
Use of GDi GISDATA solutions in land valuation enables the value assessment function of government to be concurrent with spatial data that is relevant to the valuation model. GIS adds value to land valuation models by placing added value on property that has, for example, frontage on a park or lake. If the parcel data and land use data are maintained in a geodatabase, the frontage calculation is simple and easy using the spatial intelligence of the GIS.
Cadastre is traditionally associated with maps. GDi GISDATA solutions typically open new horizons to cadastral map editors by not forcing them to create mapping model in the time of data capture and/or edit like they were used to as CAD-like systems have traditionally been used. By using GIS tools virtually unlimited number of different purpose maps can be produced, but that production can also be streamlined and productivity maintained at high level.
National Mapping Agencies support
GDi GISDATA solutions are deployed and effectively support national mapping agencies in establishing, maintaining and distributing data from inventories they are responsible for, such as territorial units registers, permanent geodetic control points database, national border database, protected areas like coastal zones, inventory of aerial shootings, map inventories etc. National mapping agencies are usually also one of the cornerstones of national spatial data infrastructures (NSDI). Even more – they often coordinate NSDI projects. GDi GISDATA is helping them carry out that task by providing best-of-breed technologies and top consultants, as well as GDi GISDATA solutions.
Distribution of information
In the value chain of the cadastral information the highest added value comes with distributing the data efficiently and timely to the end users in the form that suits their needs. Obviously it is Internet in these days that GDi GISDATA solutions use primarily for distribution of the cadastral information. The collaborative information exchange resulting from improved distribution and communication of information liberates professionals from manual search, copying, overlaying, analyzing and interpreting maps and data. Even more, it helps create community of users that then know how to propose standards, use tools and suggest better regulatory solutions in their respective areas. GDi GISDATA solutions for cadastral data distribution help realize many benefits for the consumers and added-value users such as:
- Time- and cost-efficient issuing of data and maps to citizens, governments and businesses
- Higher accessibility of spatial and other cadastral data
- New, broader possibilities of integration with other systems
- Connecting with other institutions
- Optimizing the format and amount of data sent – each user gets exactly what she/he needs
- Better service to users – citizens and organizations
- Acceleration of investment procedures
- Foundation for new value chains like spatial analysis, urban planning, real estate market, land consolidation, utilities planning, construction and maintenance, concessions and permits, environmental control, etc.
