Toolbox for National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registry Authorities (NMCAs)

The purpose of this toolbox is to provide a user-centric approach to help NMCAs in their journey towards open geospatial data and participation in pan-European infrastructures.

It presents:

  • The key steps for NMCAs willing to open their geo-spatial data at the national level,and participate in pan-European infrastructures (such as Open ELS)
  • The typical questions and challenges NMCAs face when embarking in this journey
  • The material and support NMCAs can rely on to overcome challenges, especially with respect to the measurement and monitoring of benefits.

The support material in this toolbox has been primarily developed in the context of the Open ELS project. However, material from other sources and projects has also been referenced when useful.
