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.
|In an open and machine-readable format|
|Collected by government||Yes|
|collector_name||FOD Financien / Kadaster|
There is relevant data available as a view/discovery service - CadGIS Viewer Public. However, it is not fully compliant with the requirements of this theme. There is no accessible information related to land property and even if the basic info (ID, area, type) can be downloaded as CSV, the SHP / GML export with more details requires payment.
We acknowledge and thank Bart Hanssens for the valuable contribution to the Global Open Data Index.
