Land Ownership 0% open


What data is expected?

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.

  • Parcel boundaries (inc. latitude and longitude)
  • Parcel ID
  • Property value (i.e. Price Paid, Property Tax Value)
  • Tenure Type (ie. leasehold, freehold, protected lands, public lands, customary lands)

How open is the data?

The State Geodetic Administration is maintaining a geoportal [ DGU] but the data for land information is not compliant with the requirements of the Global Open Data Index: "The cadastral map is a graphical representation of cadastral data including the following mandatory data: 1. numbers of cadastral parcels, boundaries and other borders of cadastral parcels; 2. boundaries between different uses of cadastral parcel parts, buildings and other structures; 3. house numbers of buildings; and 4. names (fallow land, streets, squares and others names). ".

We acknowledge and thank Arianit Dobroshi for the contribution.
