Land Administration for Sustainable Economic development in Smart Cities

Intelligent and effective land administration systems are a solid condition for economic sustainability. If such a system does not exist in a country or a city, development chances are far from optimal. To understand the impact of lacking land administration, it is important to see that land administration includes issues like land valuation, land titling, land use planning and the efficient use of a Land Administration System (LAS). A state-of-the art system enables justified ownership of property, promotes efficient land use planning and allows for innovative approaches in the management of smart cities. In the Netherlands Dutch Kadaster contributes to the National Spatial Data Infrastructure, directly of influence to the management of ‘smart cities’. In this presentation examples are given of recent developments.
