The Netherlands’ Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency – in short Kadaster – collects and registers administrative and spatial data on property and the rights involved. This also goes for ships, aircraft and telecom networks. Doing so, Kadaster protects legal certainty. We are also responsible for national mapping and maintenance of the national reference coordinate system. Furthermore, we are an advisory body for land-use issues and national spatial data infrastructures.

Our information is available predominantly through online web services, including information on energy labels of houses and underground cables and pipelines. Our main customer groups are civil-law notaries, local authorities, businesses, financial institutions and private individuals. Kadaster maintains the Key Registers Cadastre and Topography.

Kadaster performs its public tasks in service of society. This is reflected in the way we are organised and the ways in which we publicly account for how we work.

The Cadastre is thé source for information about ownership and use of property and space in the Netherlands! In this workshop Nick van Apeldoorn gives you a short deep dive in which way emerging technologies are impacting the Cadastre. Peter Merx will then continue with a hands-on workshop where participants will use actual full-spectrum Cadastre-data to design sustainability policy. After that we will reflect under Nick’s guidance both substantively and ethically on (future) digitalization of spatial assets.

We hope to meet you the 5th of march!
