|Purpose of the group
|Networking and knowledge sharing for Nordic Cadaster agencies (NCA)
We are sharing ideas and strategies. NCWG have a responsibility of contents and quality improvement of cadaster data.
We discuss about how we distribute data and get more value for the data. We talk about connections between cadaster and other registers. Discussions about new technologies in gathering data and updating information in cadastral databases are important for us too. We are benchmarking definitions, standards, processes, laws etc. in our meetings.
|Tasks for 2020-2021
|1) Introduce and discuss about important cadastral matter from each country.
2) Present reports about what kind of influences to cadastral surveys and/or maintenance of cadastral registers caused by corona situation.
3) Compare the position and role of the Nordic Cadaster agencies in each country.
|Future strategic tasks and future trends
|1) Efficiency in cadaster processes.
2) Legality and implementation of digital coordinates in cadaster.
3) Marin and lake cadaster developed
4) Future trends and technology changes
5) Openness of data
Future trends; as a result of digitalization, utilisation of cadastral data has heavily increased. That´s why a data quality and services has more and more important role in societies.
Augmented reality, Blockchain technology, crowdsourcing, smart cities, linked data are possible trends in cadastral issues. Using a lot of different datasets together has an important role in future.
Urbanisation means polarisation in land ownership. In some area an importance of high-quality cadaster has increased and same time in some areas needs for high quality cadaster is more limited.
|How the WG contributes to the Nordic strategy
|1. Needs of society – present & future trends
|New technology, GPS everywhere, openness of data, demand for more accurate and timely data is in positive way challenging our way of working and delivering quality information.
|2. Positioning of the NMCAs’ role in future society
|We work for more open Nordic co-operation and sharing of knowledge also with other working groups and everyone who is interested in our work.
All NCA´s are updating cadastral register (including cadastral map) in their country. Some NCA´s (Finland and Sweden) take care of cadastral surveys by themselves. Others conduct and coordinate cadastral surveys done by private sector, municipalities or other activators.
|3. Future services and data solutions
|Augmented reality, Blockchain technology, crowdsourcing, smart cities, linked data are possible trends in cadastral issues. Using a lot of different datasets together has an important role in future.
|4. Efficient organizations
|Main activity has been around our Cadaster processes and how we improve efficiency.
|5. Shared competences
|This network has proven valuable in building members competences.
|6. Cooperation in the international arena
|NCWG members have their personal networks in international level. NCWG will co-operate in the international level via our members.
