INNOVATION IN CADASTRE AND LAND DEVELOPMENT
Centro Nacional de Registros
Development of national Land and Property System
San Salvador, El Salvador
this project was a response to the lack of accurate cadastral information in
El Salvador. To meet the country’s cadastral needs, several MicroStation-based applications were developed. Using Bentley Geo Web Publisher, Centro
Nacional de Registros can now publish its cadastral projects for its many
offices around the country. As a result, more than two-thirds of El Salvador’s
population – 3. 5 million people – have access to an automated, reliable, and
up-to-date cadastral system.
Other benefits of the new system include security of the data (using JPG files),
quick performance (web-based), and low cost (one server, one license). The
system provides a 40 percent reduction in time and approximately $500,000
cost savings in revision and publishing of documents.
ALSO NOMINATED IN SPECIAL CATEGORY: SUSTAINING OUR SOCIETY
Cadastral Management System
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
the Dubai municipality’s giS department serves all departments and organizations
within the Dubai government through a broadband government information
network. It has 54 users creating base data with ground survey methods and
MicroStation as well as seven planners maintaining urban plans, cadastre,
and zoning implementation using the same MicroStation system. In-house
applications allow use of geodetic data computations including map projection
as well as output of cadastral maps.
The goal of this project is to provide the government with a geospatial
intranet. It will include automation of the preparation of legal owner
documentation. Transparent communications between disparate systems is
made possible by using a wide-area network. MicroStation and MicroStation
GeoGraphics allowed the department to continue the work of its engineering
departments with no changes and no added cost.
