Iceland: National Land Survey making digital cartography free of charge
As of 23 January 2013, digital maps and Spatial Data held by the National Land Survey of Iceland (NLSI) have been made free of charge, as determined by Svandís Svavarsdóttir Environment and Natural Resources Minister. The data is used in various projects of state agencies such as registration, planning, nature conservation, natural hazards, energy, research and public projects, but they also benefit the public and businesses in various ways.
The purpose of making digital maps and Spatial Data free of charge is to ensure that the general public in Iceland is guaranteed easy access to authoritative information about the environment and nature of Iceland. The goal is also to encourage increased use, processing and dissemination of this data, for example in the field of tourism, public administration and education.
Magnús Guðmundsson, Director General of National Land Survey of Iceland said: "This is a great day for Iceland, and for NLSI. The authoritative information that we painstakingly collect and process is now available to more people who will put it to new and exciting uses. We are fortunate to have a beautiful and unique landscape in Iceland, NLSI is proud and priveledged to have responsibility for recording every detail of it. Now more people will benefit from what we do!"
NLSI map data is available for download on their website, http://www.lmi.is/ without charge.

About the LAPSI project

LAPSI is a project in the FP7 program of the European Union.
Legal Aspects of the Public Sector Information and Re-use.
Timespan: 30 months. Participants: 20 institutions and organistions. Coordinator: University of Torino.
Kick-off Meeting: Torino, 26-28 March, 2010

Role of HUNAGI in the LAPSI Project

HUNAGI contribution is related mainly to the Geographic Information which are produced, maintained and used in land management, including surveying, mapping, cadastre and land registration, remote sensing and serviced by relevant spatial data infrastructures. From a national economic point of view, the uniform land registration system operating in Hungary is one of the most important databases of the country. This system allows to obtain over the time updated legal and geometric data, as well as other information (e.g. on ownership, land uses, mortgages, etc.). The cadastral maps integrated into the uniform land registration system show spatial relations and references of rights, facts and other information appearing on the property sheets, serving as a basis of engineering planning for the national economy. The national spatial data infrastructure can be built on this uniform, authorized and public land registration system, in small partial modules, following the EU INSPIRE Directive. HUNAGI will participate to all Working Groups and actively take part to Working Groups 01, 03 and 04. It also makes its facilities available to host one of the thematic network seminars or conferences.
