7 Structure of the Branch of the COSMC

8 Information system of Cadastre of Real Estates (IS CRE) - predecessors Computerisation of Real Estate Registry – –Uniform batch processing began in 1976, data corresponded to usership relation – –Till 1990 updates only in computer processing After 1990 – a need for a rapid change 1992 – 1995 introduction of PC at Cadastral Offices, system and data structure were still derived from the old system, many deficiencies Decision – to create a quite new system

9 IS CRE - creation Created in , application SW delivered by the Czech software house NESS Czech Not only the smooth development – very complex task – everything in the one jump, need for changes during development Complete renewal of IT infrastructure Subsystem of migration of data from the old system – testing since summer 1999 Launch of operation in September 2001

10 IS CRE – basic attributes Client / server architecture Common Oracle database for written and mapping part, mutual harmony is ensured Central database and 107 local databases interconnected via WAN Replication of changes from local databases every two hours – central database is up-to- date Uniformity is ensured – the remote SW installation to all CO in one moment, replication of classifiers from the centre

11 IS CRE – features of an advanced system I. Supports of all demands of state administration of Czech Cadastre, including legal rights to real estates Uniform for the whole country Checks data on owners against Registers of Inhabitants or Companies Possibility to view historical and future data Outputs are equipped with time of validity data Integration of written and mapping parts in one database ensures the mutual update written and mapping data

12 IS CRE – features of an advanced system II. Good security of system, username and password are necessary, all operations are logged permanently – any author of a given operation may be traced retroactively Real time data in the centre, which is the sole point for Internet services Internet service - Remote access to Cadastre data started already in 2001, enables to obtain a detailed Cadastre data from the whole country Continuous incremental further development since 2001

13 IS CRE – an overview of current services for clients Three ways of obtaining Cadastral information – –At counters of Cadastral Offices – –Data files (both descriptive and survey) in proprietary exchange format on media. There is a possibility to obtain only incremental changes in since the last time of getting data files – –Via Internet: Remote Access since 2001 Viewing at Cadastre since 2004 Web services since 2007

16 Mapové výstupy z DP ISKN – orientační mapa parcel – rastr+ ortofoto+ geometrické plány

17 Number of clients of Remote Access in years

18 Certificate of non-registration in Cadastre Cadastre is obliged by law to issue electronic certificates that a person is not registered as an owner neither has some other rights to real estates Name, surname and PIN are needed In case that a person with identification data corresponding partially to the given identification is registered in Cadastre, this fact is stated in the certificate Service has been available since

19 Viewing at Cadastre Access to basic selected information about parcels, buildings, flats and the identification of the owner Orientation map of parcels Simple switching between written and mapping data Data depicting how proceedings are processed at Cadastral Offices – status of specific proceeding, overview of all proceedings.

EUR in each year for hiring new 300 employees and for the involvement of private surveyors in order to speed up digitizing of cadastral maps Digitizing has to be completed by 2015

28 Further development of IS CRE Consolidation, centralisation of CRE – –Three tier architecture – –Easier implementation of new services – –Delayed by the cancellation of tender for new central HW, migration in the first half of 2010 – –System of basic registers of Czech Republic Parallel development of Register of Territorial Identification, Addresses and real estates (Czech Office) – mutual cooperation – –Implementation of INSPIRE Directive

29 Conclusions – lessons learnt Project of IS CRE – big bang, but very complex and demanding task Close cooperation with the deliverer of system necessary Necessity of careful testing Possibility to take over written data from the old system speeded up the creation of modern system Creation of digital cadastral maps based on old maps is very complex and demanding task.
