Land Ownership 1% open (avg.)

Data should include maps of lands with parcel layer that displays boundaries in addition to a land registry with information on registered parcels of land. The Index focuses on assessing open land tenure data (describing the rules and processes of land property). Responsible use may enable tenure security and increase the transparency of land transactions. The assessment criteria were developed in collaboration with Cadasta Foundation. For more information on land ownership datasets and where they're located, check out Cadasta Foundation's Data Overview.

The Antigua & Barbuda landfolio® Public Access Website has been provided by the Government of Antigua and Barbuda to allow general public users, and other to search the government’s land records and retrieve information. Searches may be performed by parcel number, by instrument number, by party or owner name, by address, or by an interactive map. The information available includes physical parcel characteristics, ownership information, parcel transaction history, document images, aerial photographs, and comprehensive parcel reports. However at the current time, public access has been limited to performing simple searches by parcel number and/or by instrument number. To access the map sign in is required

In general, Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre Authority provides data through several portals, each time with more or less different subset of data and functionality and each time quite explicitly not in machine-readable form and only "for personal (small scale) use".

In particular, data on property value is not publicly available, citing data protection needs.

Maynard stated: "The title searches are conducted at the Registry of Records. As a system of registered land has not yet been introduced, such searches are a tedious necessity in an archaic system.
